The name of your brand must be thought through with discernment and consistency while respecting the values and positioning of your company. The choice of this name is important but it is not enough on its own to ensure the success of your project. The notoriety of your brand can only be affirmed if other success factors are confirmed, such as a perceived quality image and the good reputation of your brand.
An original, short and easily remembered name is an asset for a brand. Consider the personality of your sign and the tone of your message. The aesthetics of your name must be in its meaning, its sound and also in its visual representation. Follow these tips in your name search for your brand:
      • Look for a brand name that isn’t too specific to your current product and can be adapted if you expand your line.
      • Project yourself into the future and avoid anchoring your brand name in a fashion trend that can quickly become outdated.
      • Special characters are trending, such as dashes, quotes, or the at sign. They bring an original side to your brand name but can go out of fashion quite quickly. To be reserved for brands that are not afraid to see their name change according to the evolution of their image… and trends.
      • Think of English for its modern, elegant and easily understood side.
      • Think of proven techniques for finding a brand name, such as a pun, an acronym, a phonetic word or the synonym of a word close to your product or service.

If your slogan can, by chance, quickly impose itself on your mind when defining your communication message, this approach most often represents a real headache when creating the brand. To have an impact on the consumer, a slogan must be short, punchy, catchy and original.

It’s best to have your brand name figured out before you set out to create your tagline, as that name can be the starting point for your wording. Several techniques can help you in your search for a slogan for your brand:

      • Describe your product prominently: 1664 – Four digits. A beer.
      • Write an original description of your offer: Airwaves – Chew. Breathe.
      • Adopt rhymes in your slogan: Entremont is otherwise good.
      • Use a metaphor: Awaken the lion within you.

05 – Create a perfect logo for your brand

The logo is an essential part of your brand’s visual identity. It is the one that your target audience will retain as a priority and that will appear on all your print or web communication media. It must be unique and easily recognizable and know how to adapt to all dimensions. It is important to think about all the possible uses of your logo when designing it in order to plan the most suitable formats and visuals depending on the medium.

Your logo must stand out from that of your competitors both by its originality and its aesthetics, but above all it must express the values ​​of your brand. The use of a graphic design professional is an asset for optimal quality and effectiveness of your logo.
