This is a short book but that does exactly what it says. It gives you help and advice on creating a brand for a small business and there’s lots of exercises to help you get that done. I have a small etsy shop and the book gives some interesting insight on the differences between a brand and simply having some colours & a logo. I’ve learnt a lot from it. A really good book
This book was INCREDIBLY helpful to me as a beginning graphic designer. I specialize in logo work and although my creative, artistic brain can often get me started, I often struggle to put my ideas in fresh, innovative ways to help a brand come to life. I love how structured this book was and it is incredibly easy to understand. A must-read for anyone starting off in branding!
Essential reading for all small business owners.
Finally some industry insights that cut the BS and tell you exactly what you need to know. I can’t stop raving about this book to all the small biz owners I meet. Grab a copy, you won’t regret it.
Brilliant! Much-needed branding basics for anyone who is freelance or runs a small business. Really practical so you come away actually taking action instead of just reading aimlessly. Loved it!
I have a very well thumbed copy of Hype Yourself, the previous book by Lucy Werner. So when I saw she was writing Brand Yourself alongside Hadrien Chatelet, I knew it would be good. But good is an understatement.
I am no beginner when it comes to branding and working with brands, but this book explains everything in simple language and demystifies the jargon used by so many others. It will be invaluable to me when working with clients and explaining why their branding needs to be sorted before we tackle other areas.
A real gem of a book – a must read for anyone creating, refreshing or reviewing a brand.
I bought this book after getting into a bit of a spiral about my business and myself. I was confusing my own personality with my company, for example, using my favourite colours rather than the colours which represent the emotions I want my audience to feel. This book helped solve all of these challenges for me and very easily and quickly came to a new vision which I cannot wait to activate. Thank you!
