Where to use your Brand Kit: 6 best practices
Brand business pages
Branding your business pages is key to successful brand positioning as it helps differentiate your company from competitors. Grab one of our ready-made logo or cover designs and apply your brand kit to templates in just a few clicks. Style all your pages with the same designs for better consistency and therefore brand recognition.
Social media content
On-brand content helps your target audience immediately recognize your brand in their feeds. Choose two or three main colors and a memorable font to create posts, stories, and Reels with your own branding. Pro tip: If you work with several businesses, multiple brand kits will help you design more effectively. Quickly create visuals for different occasions, applying relevant brand logos, colors, and fonts.
Keep your email design consistent to make your emails recognizable and build strong relationships with your customers. One of the ways to gain trust and credibility is to use the same branded email design over the years. To create custom emails, apply your brand kit to a newsletter template and replace its colors and fonts with your branding. Complete your email design by uploading your own text, vectors, and images.
E-stores and marketplaces
When creating your page on eCommerce platforms, design it according to your branding — update profile visuals for Amazon, Etsy, and Shopify with our brand kit creator. Use a kit to apply brand colors to your profile images and add your logo to each product photo in the catalog. Create on-brand eCommerce pages to stand out from the crowd and boost brand recognition.

4 tips on building a visual identity for your brand
Start with a cool logo
A logo is key for brand recognition. If you don’t have a ready logo, you can customize one of our logo templates or build one with Logomaker. To use this tool, enter your company name and industry, and it will create multiple logo variations. Choose one that reflects your brand personality and add two options to your brand kit – a PNG logo with a white and transparent background. This way, you always have your logo on hand for all your designs.
Pick the best colors
Dive deeper into color psychology to learn how colors can influence people. Certain color combinations are calming, while others are the complete opposite; ensure you’re using the right ones for your brand. Discover the most common colors for your niche and industry, and use this data as a starting point. Enter the HEX codes of colors that work for you, or select colors from the ready-made palettes in our brand kit generator.
Use instantly recognizable fonts
You can only define fonts that work best for your brand by experimenting with them. Access our library of more than 680 fonts to find the most popular styles – from classic to artistic ones. Pro tip: if you are entirely new to design, opt for minimalistic fonts. Try writing your business name in different fonts to see which suits your branding best.
Learn from the best
Check out other brands and their brand kit examples. Notice what their branding has in common – they use unique logos, memorable fonts, and one or two brand colors. Look up to the greatest, but also research your competitors to see if their kits sit well with their brand positioning and products. Get inspired and use this knowledge to make a brand kit!
