The importance of a consistent visual brand identity is something that has stuck with me. And what I learned about how to do it, from award-winning agencies and amazing graphic designers, is that it really isn’t that hard.  It’s just setting an intentional course and sticking with it.

Visual brand consistency has been an on-going focus for me every time I create a new piece of content.  Back in episode 2 I shared how to create a brand guide to keep yourself consistent, and help share your brand rules with others (like a graphic designer or VA). 

Today I want to take you behind the scenes with me and tell you how I manage my branding to keep it consistent.
