Visual Brand Management At It's Finest. - act4

Your company has grown... and you have too. You've realized your brand needs a bit MORE than just graphic design from a multitude of creative sources. You need overall creative direction for your brand. - You need VBM from act4.

VBM (Visual Brand Management) isn't a commonly used industry term, but it should be. Whilst it's true that there are many kinds of designers in the marketplace providing first class solutions, working without an overall management system for your company's vision eventually effects the consistency of your brand. Over time this lack of singular focus dilutes your brand and your potential clients get lost as you try to market yourself. This is incredibly common with businesses of all sizes. - Enter act4! :)

It's the benchmark of your brand; something that speaks loudly with a megaphone done well OR poorly. Make sure your logo sends the message you want the world to hear. Oh... and don't forget a good tagline!
Once you have your photography, the thing that will set you apart and bring your images to life is the image enhancement. Without a doubt this is the core of act4's business competencies.
There are many reasons for choosing to have a site but the biggest by far is company validation. Even if you don't feel you need a site, be sure to consider if your clientele would feel more at peace if you did.
By far the most powerful way to attract people to your product, service or idea is to blog about it. Creating stimulating contents makes you rank high on search engines and put your compency out there in the marketplace.

Presentation

Social

Poor photography in today's picture-dense society can be the make or break for your product, service or idea. Also be sure to find a solution where you own the rights to the images outright or be ready to suffer!
Falling under the logo, branding gives structure to all your asset elements, directing your client's customers into a consistent experience that makes sense and never waivers. Essential for all serious business owners.
if your buying customer is in this price range then social media is a must. More than just likes, it brings awareness to what you're selling and draws them out to your website where they may not organically find you.
