There a lot of vague words out there describing what companies in our field of work actually do. But simply put, branding is articulating the essence of a business in words and design. Examples are naming a company or product, crafting slogans, and making logos. Design refers to the visual aspects of that process, but also the creation of a range of products to telegraph the brand. This could include anything from stunning paper collateral to brilliant web sites. Naretiv also does countless flavors of advertising, whether that means TV ads or the most advanced online targeting.
