Words and imagery are the backbone of brand communication pieces – we preach that non-stop here at Studio 22, as you know. When the tone of your writing and the mood of your images come together, they convey the essence of your brand. (Well, they should. If your don’t, you should call us.)
Consider taking this concept a step further with a brand short – part movie, part commercial. For example, we collaborated with Ryan Smith Photography on one for our client, Naukabout.
Being an aprés sports apparel line, parts of their brand “essence” were combined to create a story their target audience can identify with. In 30 seconds viewers get a solid idea of what the Naukabout brand is.
The client can then use the video for sales presentations, as a tool for sales reps, as a promotional piece to end-users, or on screens in its tradeshow booth.
Lululemon and Horny Toad are two other brands that nail the brand short. Not only are they fun to watch, but the audience gets to hear what the brand sounds like. Music adds the extra dimension to draw consumers into the brand story. Check these out for more inspiration: Lululemon‘s 2011 Summer Sneak Peak and Horny Toad‘s Prelude to a Dinner Party.
