Establishing an effective brand and a memorable brand identity can be incredibly difficult. However, a strong brand can create customer recognition and loyalty, and offer your organisation a competitive edge and enhanced credibility.
This Innovate UK EDGE webinar will highlight elements to bear in mind as you consider how to build your business’s brand identity.
