What is Branding? Definition in a Nutshell

What is branding? There are a lot of definitions out there, some very esoteric, and some very practical, but all containing a significant chunk of truth. So, what is branding? We offer the definition in a nutshell.

“I am impressed with how clearly Tony was able to understand our vision for IBCS and then turn that into an excellent identity that perfectly fits what we’re doing here.”
Jeff Caupp, Dean of Students • International Baptist College & Seminary
“Tony has an unrivaled ability to understand a product and turn that into what it needs to be visually. When powerful, dead-on branding is absolutely critical, there’s just no one else I want working on it.”
Eric Boyd, VIP of Sales and Marketing • The Paddleboard Co.
“I’ve worked with a lot of designers and hands down Tony is the best and easiest to work with. The quality of his work is excellent and his service is second-to-none. I would recommend him to anyone.”
Daniel Morales, Owner • Mr. Reliable Plumbing & Heating
