Custom Graphics: Creating Impactful First Impressions and Brand Consistency

Do you remember the day you adopted your dog? When you first spotted your spouse? That fateful first encounter with your now mortal enemy?! The odds are high that they made a memorable first impression (and quickly)! The same rings true for businesses.

As the marketplace becomes increasingly crowded, businesses and nonprofits are challenged to differentiate themselves from competitors. One effective way to achieve this is through the use of custom, branded graphics.

Building a Unified and Consistent Brand

Custom graphics are pivotal in creating and maintaining brand consistency across various digital platforms. This consistency is essential in strengthening your audience’s brand recognition.

While voice and tone are critical to your copy, custom graphics help establish a unified visual language. Whether it’s your website, social media, email newsletters or digital advertisements, employing consistent graphic elements – like logos, color schemes, fonts and imagery – ensures your brand is instantly recognizable. 

Having these branded elements readily available in one location (like in a custom Canva resource library) makes achieving visual consistency easy, allowing you to create consistent and cohesive pieces, making each interaction with your audience familiar and reinforcing your brand identity.

A consistent visual theme also creates a professional and credible online presence. This not only attracts new customers but also instills confidence in existing ones. 

Differentiating in a Crowded Market

In a market flooded with competitors, standing out can be a challenge. Tough, right? Trust us, we understand. As a business ourselves, we know the pain. As expert marketers, we also know the solutions. Custom graphics are one.

Unlike generic stock images, custom graphics provide your brand with a visual flare all its own. Not to mention, these Canva creations also ensure you are the ONLY brand using that graphic.

NOTE: Custom graphics take your brand above and beyond, but stock images can sometimes get the job done, too! Check out our favorite free stock sites – Unsplash.com and Pexels.com – if you need a base for your Canva templates.
