Nothing against brand strategists, graphic designers, or digital marketing specialists (we love you!), but sometimes, you just gotta do it yourself. If you’re on a budget, you don’t need to hire someone else to build your brand — especially when you’re just getting it off the ground. With a little soul-searching into your brand’s personality, purpose, and target audience, you can create a strong foundation for your brand on your own.
What goes into DIYing your brand?
Along with brand voice and company mission, visuals are an essential part of your DIY branding strategy. When you use cohesive, on-brand visuals for your social media pages, website, blog, or ads, you make a lasting and memorable impression on your audience. Someone should be able to glance at your Instagram feed or landing page of your site and recognize your brand instantly.
However, we know from experience that building a cohesive set of visuals gets messy. There are so many details to consider when creating a unique #aesthetic for your brand: colors, fonts, typefaces, images, photo filters, photo angles…you get the idea. That’s why our Canva mood board templates can help you keep your brand visuals organized.
