You know a brand has got it right when just the vision of their logo or mention of their name instantly associates with their brand values, clearly communicated across the world. With globally recognised brands there are no language barriers hindering the understanding of the company’s industry, values or product – the message is received in simple terms, symbolised through one icon.

It goes without saying that the development of the brand is crucial in evaluating the changes within the company and learning how to represent and re-represent the company to the consumer. Brand values are key in this process and it’s clear that the most successful businesses in today’s market think further than aesthetics when representing their brand.
