Logo Design, Brand Identity, Brand Strategy
His ideal customer is 23-45 yrs old male or female, has a job, enjoys using social media tools, likes to look trendy but different. He or she doesn’t want to wear what others wear, is usually college educated, typically likes to travel, middle-class and values quality/durability though price/value conscious.
To penetrate this market segment in London, Femi engaged SpellBrand to come up with a great brand name, a strategy to position the brand effectively in the London fashion scene and a matching brand identity that will set him apart and at the same time tie in with English heritage.
After weeks of research and brainstorming, the positioning strategy team at SpellBrand, led by the inimitable strategist, author and CEO of SpellBrand – Mash Bonigala, came up with a positioning strategy that uses content marketing to reach, engage and nurture the primary target audience and build relationships. A great brand name was developed that not only sounds British but also has brand recall effect. Stylesbrough means “land of style” and is an apt brand name for this spirited young brand.
Brand Identity: To compliment the awesome brand name and the strategy we had crafted, the logo design team at SpellBrand created a logo that looks stunning and ties in beautifully with English heritage, fashion and elegance. The main brand mark is crest style based with a beautiful ornamental crest made up of thin lines and dots. Inside the crest is an “X” mark which houses four elements – a simple and impactful crown, the words Est. 2014 and the letter “S”.
The London brand identity looks light and airy and brands beautifully on various items such as bags, tags, stationery and other merchandising. The brand mark ends this new brand instant credibility and impact.
