Dress to Impress: Organizational Branding

Organizational branding plays an important role in business. It’s important to be consistent in the way your marketing communication looks and feels. This includes everything your logo goes on and more. Everything should match and fall within the brand design, from a company brochure to a Facebook page. This projects professionalism and recognition.

The City of Reno government has a lot going on in terms of service offerings. As you can imagine for a city of 225k residents, there is a lot of information that is distributed. The challenge is to connect all that messaging by color, tone, look, and feel.

We recently published the 2013 Spring-Summer Recreation brochure. This program guide lists hundreds of opportunities for Renoans to recreate. As I blogged about in Recreation Reno, recreation is a pillar of Reno’s brand. Take a look at the e-brochure by clicking here.

  1. I was very impressed by the brochure! This is a professional style production. Will this theme be extended to official websites as well, or is it specifically for city paper publications?
