THE LOGO

Building the Think Brick brand

Brands are icons of our society reflecting our personal


preferences, values and lifestyles.
A brand is not something tangible, such as a label, logo,
style and feature; it does not consist of rational features
and benefits. A brand is created in the hearts and minds of
the consumer. Brands are an emotional connection –
beyond rational reasoning and logic, product superiority,
product attributes, or technical specifications alone.
The importance of building Think Brick’s brand identity is
vital to our success as an organisation. It reflects the mood
and tone to be captured in whatever piece of
communication – advertising, newsletters, brochures, signs,
websites, etc. Branding captures the thought that every
point of contact that an individual has with Think Brick
should reflect the same tone. But, having the same tone
doesn’t necessarily mean that every piece of
communication must look the same.
