Maintaining Brand Consistency

Even with the clearest brand guides, designs can sometimes go awry after the handover. Ensuring a consistent brand image across all platforms is crucial, yet it can be challenging. In this final installment, we discuss strategies to prevent branding mishaps and maintain a unified brand identity. Because no one wants their social media looking like it belongs to a different company altogether!


Post-handover, the challenge is ensuring that the brand remains consistent across all touchpoints. Here are some strategies to maintain a cohesive brand image:


1. Common Pitfalls

  • Inconsistent Social Media: A well-designed website might not translate to consistent social media branding. This discrepancy can confuse the audience and dilute the brand’s impact.

  • Deviations from the Style Guide: Over time, you might unintentionally deviate from the style guide, leading to a fragmented brand identity. Remember, your brand guide is not a suggestion; it's a sacred text!


2. Strategies for Consistency
