    What Is a Brand Guidelines Template?

    What do all world renowned brands have in common? A unique brand identity that is recognizable in any context. The key here is to determine a visual identity that is unique to your brand. This is where the brand guidelines come in.

    Having clearly defined brand guidelines helps an organization to maintain consistency across all platforms of brand visibility. A brand guideline typically contains color themes, font styling, the language and tone of branding material and value which the brand represents.

    How to Create a Brand Guidelines Template?

    • Start by identifying the values that your brand represents and what is unique about it. You can do this by conducting a collaborative brainstorming session on Creately together with your team.
    • The next step is to conduct competitor research. Find out how your competitors present themselves to the market. Study their branding styles and language. You can use a Creately workspace to conduct competitor research. Import data in CSV, docs, links or image formats for easier analysis.
    • The third step is to develop a visual language for your brand.
