A rebranding phase is an exciting time for any business, person, or group. It’s the opportunity to show customers and/or stakeholders that we are building upon our experiences and sharpening our focus around where we drive value. For small and new businesses, a rebrand can add an extra spark required to catch the attention of their much needed early adopters. All things being equal, a customer might gravitate towards a business for the first time based on strong branding presence.

In other times, a brand grows to introduce new products that need to be aligned back to the core vision. Take Nike; they are the perfect example of brand architecture. Their vision statement, “To bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world,” is the ultimate macro brand mission.
