LOGOS & BRAND LAUNCH

Image by Luca Lago

Our brands are as unique and special as the business owners that we work with. Not one person or brand is alike, and that's how we like it.

Stack Strategies is passionate about helping small businesses grow! That includes helping them grow from scratch and, also, rebuilding a brand to form a new style. When it comes to branding, we help businesses build brands that their team feels confident in. Our brands are always built to fit the business, which is never a one-size-fits-all. We use a combination of colors, words, fonts, icons, and other design elements to create your business's look. Then we take that look a step further creating several variations, such as with and without the tagline, horizontal and vertical versions, and in color and uncolored! Our attention to detail brings a clear vision to your brand; this helps you become more memorable to your clients and gives you a foundation for growth.  

 

Stack Strategies recommends anyone who is building a brand to consider a branding launch package, rather than just a brand build. With a branding launch package, you will get a head start on launching your brand to your friends and family. We include the branding essentials in your package to be sure you are ready for business, like formatting your brand on social media and plugging your brand into your tools.

Did you know?

Your logo is the image that represents you. 78% of consumers believe that logos are works of art (Study Finds, 2020). Is your logo a work of art?

That's why SS creates designs fit for you while considering your branding for the future. 

Your logo isn't a one-size-fits-all image. More than 60% of Fortune 500 companies use a logo that features a combination of designs (Website Planet, 2021).

That's why SS creates several shapes and colors file types.

Our Branding Difference

Our custom approach to brand building is what sets us apart. Sometimes business owners will bring inspiration to us, but typically our clients need a whole new idea or concept for their logo builds. We take time to get to know our business owners and together we imagine the best possible brand for their business situations. Then, we take this information to our brand designer who brings the ideas to life. By acting as almost a mediator between the designer and the business owner, we create the perfect concepts that appeal to everyone's eyes.  Whatever it is that we want the business to be remembered for, SS guides the business owner to create the perfect look and gets it done! 

 

The main component that makes our branding packages so special is the proper launch of a brand. We feel strongly that our more successful brands are those that are launched and marketed well. That means making sure your brand is seen in all the right places. When you receive your logo, it will never be made to fit all the places it needs to go – your social sites, emails, business cards, etc. There's a lot more work to be done after your logo is done. If you allow us to create your business launch assets, it helps to be sure you are ready to get your business's name out there. We thoroughly make sure you have a true foundation for success with your new brand, and we hope it shows.
