Unforgettable Branding – Mexico Beach, Florida

This year, The Idea Boutique is working to update The Unforgettable Coast branding for Mexico Beach with a fresh take on the design. The rustic look we created four years ago has been transformed with a brighter color palette and a focus on large, rich photos that show off the beauty and personality of this remote fishing village. “It was time to refresh,” says Lisa, “We love working for this great place and hope it never loses what it is—some places are not meant to be changed, but rather to be appreciated.”

Brand Identity: Keeping Your Brand Safe and Sound

In today’s fast and ever-changing environment of technology, copyright laws, and design standards, it is more important than ever to make sure your brand’s identity is secure and up-to-date. Especially for larger brands or those who are experiencing a lot of growth, it can be difficult for your marketing and design teams to keep up with changing initiatives, language, or trademark statuses. Implementing a system of guidelines for your brand’s identity and keeping it current will help your team be sure they are pushing a consistent branded message across all platforms of your marketing efforts. These things protect your brand and its promise to consumers.
