Without a brand identity, your brand goes unnoticed. It’s that simple.

4 Brand Identity Examples

If you’re creating a brand identity for your business, looking at examples will help you understand the scope of its importance. The brand identity examples below are from large companies that have great brand equity and a loyal customer base.

How do you think they got there? With a lot of perseverance and, you guessed it, a solid brand identity to carry them through.

Hydroflask

The brand identity for Hydroflask is all about living your best life, preferably outdoors. Their slogan is “Hey, let’s go” and they inspire users, ambassadors and team members to use the hashtag on their social media. The Hydroflask identity isn’t about a color palette but about the storytelling and the people.

HubSpot

HubSpot is a notable example of brand identity. Since the beginning, HubSpot has always been orange. Their signature color is at the base of all their visual branding.

But the orange isn’t everything; their brand identity design goes beyond that. Part of HubSpot’s brand identity is its Culture Code, a 120-slide deck that explains why HubSpot cares so much about culture, both for their clients and their team.

Duolingo

The Duolingo owl is one of the most memorable brand mascots on the internet these days. So much so that it’s a hit on TikTok. But Duo’s (the mascot’s name) popularity didn’t start on social media. The mascot is the foundation of the brand identity; its shape inspired the curved shapes on the logo.

Ikea

There are a number of things we can say about the Ikea brand identity that go beyond its logo and iconic colors. For example, their Swedish meatballs or the way you have to walk through the entire maze to get to the end, or the illustrations in the building instructions and even the names of the items they sell.

Ikea's brand guidelines are all about creating a solid brand identity and you can feel it at every touchpoint.
