Branding is crucial to any company looking to stand out – and it goes far beyond creating a great logo. From business cards and stationary to social media, a brand’s identity needs to transcend across all forms of collateral and come off feeling just as strong.

Signature colors, unique icons, mascots and eye-catching patterns are just a few tricks up designers’ sleeves. But perfectly pairing those brand elements with a logo is where the real skills come in.

Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite recent brand identity designs to help inspire your next project. Enjoy!
