The Corporate Brand | The Express Yourself Edit |

A visual identity, oftentimes considered as the corporate face, the essence of its expression, the sum of visual identifiers such as logo, typography, a colouring palette and an overall style – it is the cornerstone of the corporate brand. The expression elements of a brand include the tone of voice, the visual expression, the tagline, the so-called positioning statement, a flagship product range and signature offerings |
