“Products are made in a factory but brands are created in the mind.” – Walter Landor.
Walter Landor is one of the most famous brand designers in history. His designs include branding work for all-time greats like Coca-Cola and General Electric, as well as many airlines and other companies. This quote has a deep meaning; as a luxury brand, your product is important, but your brand is built on the perception and emotion of your presence, not on the product itself.
“Fashion changes, but style endures.” – Coco Chanel
Coco Chanel’s quote on style translates directly to your business’ brand. Branding is more than marketing. Marketing campaigns come and go, they change with current events, adapt to public sentiment and the whims of the target audience. But the brand is a rock, a foundation that is built over time. While the brand may mean different things to different people, it endures over time and continues to stand as both solid and reliable.
