Does your brand need a revamp?

Steps you can take to revamp successfully

Here are 4 reasons you may want to consider revamping your brand.

1. Has your business outgrown its name?

Your brand identity will not stay relevant forever.

Your logo may not stay relevant forever. As businesses evolve and adapt to the market, there is a need to have a logo, brand and website that aligns well with your company’s new direction and core values.

In 2018, Impact Hub Singapore rebranded as Found, following their regional expansion. This move is a great example on how you should consider revamping your brand for new potential investors and to a wider audience.

“It was important for us that our new brand reflected our ambition and vision in building the best network of innovation studios across the SEA region.” 

Grace Sai, founder and CEO of Found.

2. Is there confusion with your brand?

Strike a better connection with your audience.

Is the branding of your company a true reflection of the product or service that you provide? In cases where your name or logo design is too generic, customers may be confused on what it is that you do. A rebrand helps you better tell your story.

The iconic colours are kept but the logo-mark of coffee and “donuts” are no longer. This “simple” redesign not only widens the range of products they offer but also avoids any possible confusion to whether donuts are their only specialty.

3. Is there a lack of visual consistency?

Build a brand identity and stay true to it.

Introducing new colours or different typefaces for your marketing materials may hurt your brand. Similarly, pay attention to your selection of stock images — warm and cool colours in photography clash and should be avoided. Likewise, your target audience matters.

Visual cues are powerful for brand recognition.

4. Trying to change the perception of your brand?

Brand perception is not set in stone.

A revamp if executed well will help your consumers see you in a new light.
