There are many instances when  companies hire celebrities from various backgrounds to endorse their brands along with the related products and services to elevate the reach to the audience by utilizing the potential status and fame of the celebrity. However, the stature of the celebrity should complement the nature of the products and services of the brand and vice versa. In such cases, the said celebrity becomes the face and identity of the brand.

Why is brand identity important?

1.Personality: As you may have realized now that all this  has more to do with the visual representation of the values and “personality” of a brand. This means identity design essentially sets the tone of a brand, and can be used to trigger specific emotions in the  audience. Therefore, brand identity should be designed to communicate a company’s overall message and promote business goals.

2.Differentiation: A brand identity helps you to differentiate your business from the competition and appropriately position your brand. Developing a professional, creative identity design can help you to stand out to potential customers in your market.

3.Consistency: Developing a brand identity allows you to create a consistent message across all marketing materials. Each piece should have the same basic styles and design elements, creating a cohesive branding package.

4.Loyalty: An effective brand identity can help to build customer loyalty and trust in a brand, since it allows customers to make a connection between a product and the company.
