Do you mean brand, brand, or brand?

PUBLISHED: 24/03/2021

‘Brand’ is a term that’s used liberally in the marketing and creative worlds – but are we entirely clear on what we mean by it? When you say ‘brand’, it might be to describe: the business itself; the people within the business; the meaning, associations, and experiences people have that are related to that business; or the various communicative elements and assets of that business.

As an agency who describe ourselves as ‘brand-first’, it’s important for us to have some clarity on what we mean by brand, and how businesses can drive improvement through it.
