  • The term graphic identity typically refers to the logo of a company, usually supported by system of rules and guidelines that establish how a company will represent itself through advertisements, collateral, stationery, signage, vehicles, etc.
  • Identity Brand While a graphic identity system is an important part of a brand, it is only the visible component, not the brand itself. The logo is a sign for the brand. A logo redesign is not a rebranding, although is one of the easiest components of brand to successfully change.
