What is branding, and why is it important?

A brand is the unique identity an organization has in the eyes of its stakeholders. Organizations build a strong brand by using consistent, easily identifiable brand elements in their internal and external marketing and communications. Brand elements include logos, colors, fonts, and other graphic signals, as well as narrative elements such as values, characteristics, tone and key messages.

Having a strong brand is extremely important to standing out in a competitive market. Organizations with strong brands are more easily recognized, find it easier to attract consumers and employees, are more inspiring to stakeholders, instill greater trust in the public, and build financial value.

You can explore the Heller Identity online here.

Heller Wordmark

The Heller wordmark (often called a logo) is our most important visual branding element. Please use it on any print materials you develop and distribute externally. Several versions are available here for download.
