Web Identity / Brand Design
Interaria is a brand driven Web design company. Establishing and further developing your company’s brand identity for the Web and online media is our key focus and interest. Our focus is to establish concept and identity that can be carried through the entire site, building a consistent visual presence and brand message for the Web and preferably across all media.
Interaria regards solid brand messaging as an act of creating and sending out an invitation to join. The consumer or target audience should not feel targeted but rather feel invited to join the company message and its value building promise. Solid brand messaging aims to understand and pinpoint the audience’s taste and needs, and create a message that they can recognize, identify, distinguish, notice, and ultimately choose and want to join. What ever the style and content of the message, it should always come across confident and consistent in order to rise up from the noise of other competing and often compelling messages in a potentially very crowded market place and saturated business environment.
Identity Must Feel Right
Our goal is always — unless otherwise decided — create Web media that is consistent with our client’s identity. We thoroughly understand cohesiveness when it comes to use of established trademarks, logos, colors and other identity shapes. We also recognize that often times developing a new website gives our client’s company a chance to look deeper into the existing identity design material. Perhaps the client would like to integrate a new slogan, refine the company logo, refresh the old colors, or completely reorganize or establish a new way to crystallize and present the company’s core message. Although we firmly believe and see identity design as target audience driven — based on the taste and preferences by the targeted and invited consumers — we also very much believe that solid brand design strongly takes into account what the client really thinks and feels about their visual presence and messaging. Our prior experience tells that brand and identity design foremost must feel right to the client, or else it won’t root deeply to the company’s communication and way of doing business, facing a danger to remain artificial and something that is fast and easy to change, over and over again. Most importantly our client’s company for key parts must accept, like and feel their marketing message, identity design (such as the look and feel of their website) for the consumer to feel the same.
Our work methods are fairly simple: Based on our mutually gained understanding and set goals for the visual brand identity, we work vigorously towards establishing and refining it until everything feels right. We typically always design and present identity and visual design for the Home page, and for each page of changing information structure or other changing variables. Our focus is to establish concept and narrative that can be carried through the entire site building a consistent visual presence for the website. The further we get in the process the more easier it will become to put all the pieces of the puzzle to their correct places. Ideas turns into clarity, shapes turn into important markers of the message and identity. Only upon your company’s full and final approval do we move forward to the programming and coding phase of the project.
