The need for a school to rebrand is often “the elephant in the room.” Everyone knows it’s there, but no one want to address it.

Rebrand Conversation Starters/ Elephant Handlers

At Graphic Details, we understand the “elephant in the room phenomenon”. As a matter of fact, we are currently going through a rebrand of our own! In today’s post, we are going to share some questions to ask yourselves when deciding whether or not to change your visual identity or whole brand.

  1. Does your current visual identity command attention/is it memorable?
  2. Does your audience have a difficult time understanding what your logo is about at first glance?
  3. Does your brand evoke a pertinent emotional response from your audience?
  4. Do you feel as though your school has evolved away from your current brand and/or visual identity?
  5. Is your school trying to reach a different audience than when your current identity was originally designed?
  6. Does your visual identity differentiate you from other schools?
  7. Could your brand reflect the personality of your school more effectively?
  8. Is there a lack of interest from your team to share your current visual identity with your community?
  9. Could your identity system be more flexible for use in both print AND digital?
