Company Branding

Category: Competition

The company brand is the way a company is perceived by those who experience it. More than simply a name, term, design, or symbol, a brand is the recognizable feeling a product or business evokes. Brands, then, live in the mind. They live in the minds of everyone who experiences them: employees, investors, the media, and, perhaps most importantly, customers. Simply put, brands are perceptions. In Virtual Enterprise the Company Branding is a competition that showcases the visual elements of a company and how well they project the image of the company. The competitive rubric required presentation of the company logo, colors, fonts, stationery, and several other applications of the brand. View the rubric HERE
