Design is the silent ambassador of your brand.Paul Rand
Do you want to know the secret formula behind a successfully designed product? Also known as a “brand promise,” design language refers to what your company desires to communicate to your end-users.
At Hatch Duo, we believe visual branding and product development should be intertwined. Entrepreneurs, have you considered how valuable a visual branding language would be to your physical products as you scale? Designers, how often are you “thinking ahead” of the roadmap to lay the foundation for a unified product line?
We believe the most successful product companies are brand-focused, as opposed to product/feature-focused. We’ve taken this long-term perspective in our design process to empower our clients. We identify brand elements and strategically target our desired outcome before ever putting pen to paper.
