Standardizing Visual Identity
Creating an Identity System is the definitive method for standardizing your brand’s visual identity and its future iterations. OWDT designs a uniform system, producing characteristic imprints that users will recognize unanimously. A cohesive experience imparts a singular voice that is consistent in its look and feel, whether it’s in print collateral, web design, or other media. The benefits of adopting an identity system extend well beyond your user’s visual experience.
There are many standalone pieces that make up the total identity system. Each component separately requires dedicated attention, but their collective purpose acts to constitute one standardized interaction with your customer. Below you will find some of the most important identity expression touch points.
