Visual impressions remain emphatically in memory. Each of us knows logos that can be clearly assigned to certain companies, brands and products. Even the use of certain colors can trigger associations with specific companies - such as Google's blue, red, yellow and green colors. Consistent representation in media such as Facebook, Instagram, on the website, and on analog business cards creates this link. Of course, a company like Google has a monopoly position and that alone claims the colors for itself. But you can also promote your business as a freelancer and win customers with the help of a consistent corporate design.
Your professional appearance will be strengthened by the use of a logo, banner for Facebook or Linked-In and an individual web design. We show you how to make a brand out of your services as a freelancer or self-employed person and thus make a name for yourself among customers.
What lies behind a corporate design
A professional appearance as a company, brand or provider is no longer possible without corporate design. Only visual characteristics create a public appearance that is explicitly associated with a company or a product. For example, everyone knows exactly what the Apple logo or the font of a certain Swedish furniture store looks like. From this, we can derive the definition of corporate design: Corporate design stands for a uniform, conceptualized appearance of a provider, company or brand. Corporate design is associated with corporate identity, which includes communication style, corporate philosophy or public behavior. Corporate identity and design are usually defined together.
Which elements you should design uniformly in the corporate design
Corporate design and corporate identity are mutually dependent and should be coordinated for a professional representation of your business. A conservative logo, for example, does not go well with a modern slogan. You should consider the following elements when defining your corporate design:
- Catchy claim or advertising slogan
- Color concept (primary and secondary colors)
- Text and language style
- Font and font size
- Style of graphics and images
Some areas should definitely be equipped with your corporate design, such as:
- Business cards
- Digital advertisements
- Signatures and headers (digital and analog)
- Flyers and other analog advertising materials
- Products packaging
As a freelancer and self-employed person, a consistent presentation in media, on the website and in communication with customers and partners is just as important as for a company or a brand. An easy way to implement your corporate design already in the appointment booking is an automated appointment booking with an appointment booking software. For this purpose, meetergo provides functions for you to integrate your logo, color and text style into your booking page, so that your customers can directly relate to your business through visual presentation.
