Brand Image and Changing Time

Brand Image is the intangible  part of a business which a consumer experiences when he is in various touch points, such as logo, signage, slogan, USP, tagline, etc.

For example, the Mac Donald's image as a brand is a direct reflection of their brand promises like fast delivery and economic price which they have been doing concisely for more than two generations.

Google image as a brand has been more than an Internet search company and has been successful due to its simplicity and total focus on search.

Various touch points of Google

Google logos

Initial Google logo from 1997                          

 Original logo in Baskerville Bold, used from September to October 1998, with a different color combination from the one in use today. 

The logo used from October 1998 to May 30, 1999, differs from the previous version with an exclamation mark added to the end, an increased shadow, letters more rounded, and different letter hues. Note that the color of the initial G changed from green to blue. This color sequence is still used today, although with different hues and font. 

The company logo changed to one based on the Catull typeface and was used from May 31, 1999 to May 5, 2010. The exclamation mark was removed, and it remained the basis for the logo until August 31, 2015. 
 The logo used from May 6, 2010 to September 18, 2013, showing a reduced distance of the projected shadow, a change in the second "o" to a different yellow hue and a more flattened lettering. 

Google’s “don’t be evil” slogan was proposed by Googler Paul Buchheit in the early 2000s when Google was still finding its footing.

Responsive design vs. dedicated mobile landing pages

To provide a cleaner user experience (without the pinch-to-zoom, scrolling-all-over, eye-squinting
madness), many marketers have turned to a technique called responsive design.

Responsive design essentially allows you to have one page that accommodates all device types and
screen sizes, from mobile to tablet to desktop and beyond.

Depending on the ways you intend to interact with your user, this can save you time and development
resources and help you maintain a cohesive design language and brand identity.

While responsive design is all the rage in web design circles these days, it’s not always the best solution for campaign-specific landing pages.

To illustrate this point, let’s ask a question:

Will users book European travel from their phones?

While we should always test assumptions like these, logic tells us this is not very likely. So if device
context tells us the user is landing on the page from mobile, what should we do?

We may want to build unique mobile landing pages that fe…
