Graphic design and visual branding for entrepreneurs and businesses according to BRAND BOXES, an easy 9 step approach

different graphic styles

Above is a pic­ture of 6 apples.

Even if they are the same, they look very dif­fer­ent.
It is like they all are saying, “APPLE.”
But each one has its own dialect!
They belong to dif­fer­ent graphic styles.

Graphic Styles, like fash­ion, change over time. That is why you can look at an old movie poster or an old adver­tise­ment and be able to say,
«Oh, this is the sixties!» or «This looks like some­thing from back in my grand­pa’s days!» When fash­ion and graphic styles are new, we are not able to look at them that way, but call them «inno­v­a­tive», – for one year.

Choosing a graphic style for your web­site and mar­ket­ing mate­ri­als should be done by vis­it­ing the val­ues, vision and mission of your busi­ness, and by research­ing the pref­er­ences of your tar­get audi­ence. Cut­ting edge rock and roll graphic design does not speak to hearts of senior cit­i­zens look­ing for finan­cial advice, and a pol­ished cor­po­rate look will not attract female painters on the lookout for a cozy gallery. It all comes down to how well you know your tar­get audi­ence — and yourself.

Every piece of graphic work I do reflects the input
and pref­er­ences of my clients.

I often find it very use­ful, evolv­ing, stim­u­lat­ing and fun, to explore dif­fer­ent graphic styles, and maybe even some graphic styles that my clients may not want very often. This helps me main­tain my graphic repertoire and is an exer­cise in empa­thy.

I never know how my next piece of work is going to look,
until I have gotten to know my client, because she knows her­self and
 her ideal client.
