Probably the single most important aspect of operating a successful business is brand awareness. The public likes to invest their money in companies and products that they recognize and trust. Your customers associate your brand with a few things, including your logo and signage. When these are drastically different there can be a disconnection in the minds of your customers about the identity of your brand. It is vital to create a unified identity across all of your different marketing platforms.
If you have multiple signs, it is important that they all have the same look and feel. When you have multiple signs that look completely different, you create confusion. The same goes with the use of colors. If you use different colors for your signs, logos, and other promotional materials, there would be no way that your customer can recognize you amongst everyone else, or know what you fully represent.
For example, you are walking through a mall to get a birthday present for a friend. You walk up to a store that has bright yellow sign with black letters shaped like a gift tag. Then you walk inside and are surrounded by yellow and blue interior signage shaped like gift tags, the employees are wearing tan slacks with blue polo shirts, and the carpeting and tiles all have the yellow and blue accents. Where are you? That’s right. Best Buy. And each and every Best Buy store looks exactly the same from Boston to San Francisco. That’s what we call Brand Consistency! You can know where you are and why you are there, just by looking around.
By having consistent messaging across all mediums, you show credibility and reliability to your customers. If you are having issues with the consistency of your sign in conjunction with your other marketing materials, it may be time to make some changes.
