Brand - COMPANY IDENTITY
The biggest intangible asset of any company is trust and a brand is what creates and enhances that first impression of a company. A brand is the image a company creates of itself. It defines the role of the brand in creating the image of the company - its goal is to distinguish it among competitors.
Rules of the brand includes a series of both technical requirements and compliance with philosophical and psychological factors in its creation. The digital revolution has significantly changed the form and content of the brand, but has not changed the essential - its function.
Design is both a noun and a verb. It is the beginning and the end, it is the creative process and the final product itself. Content is design raw material.
Form is the reorganization and manipulation of content. Forms of design expression include texture, space, contrasts, balance, proportion, ornament, repetition, scale, size, shape, color, value, material, and weight. When these raw materials are combined, the desired result is confidence, unity, harmony and grace. The perfection of the design depends on the integration of all the ingredients, which is practically impossible sometimes. In addition to everything comes the creative moment, intuition and experience. There is no formula for good design, every problem is unique, as is every solution
Form and content are interactive and interdependent and create function. To the extent that form manipulates content, content determines the nature of that manipulation. Form intensifies, highlights, obscures or even changes the meaning of function. In the digital world, this interplay of content and form is critical to business development - function is made or lost.
DESIGN SYSTEMS - UX and UI
Design systems streamline work processes, promote communication and consistency, increasing the company's competitiveness in digital environments. A design framework is a set of UX and UI design guidelines, including core elements and standards, that are clearly documented for future reference. The best design systems combine UX (applies to both physical and digital products) and UI (focuses on the aesthetics of digital products) design to deliver a satisfying user experience.
Design systems turn chaos into order by creating a common visual language for designers and developers, allowing them to constantly improve and innovate. Even as personnel changes and technology evolves, a good design framework ensures credibility for a brand, its online site, and a consistent user experience, building a strong relationship between products and their users.
