Brand architecture helps brands to organise and structure a framework to allow for independent brand equity, enhanced focus and highly targeted communication.

In this article, we’re breaking down what brand architecture is and how you can leverage an effective brand structure strategy to construct multiple brands and maximise structured growth.

What Is Brand Architecture?

Brand architecture is the discipline and technique used by brand strategists to organize and structure multiple subdivisions of a master brand.

These sub-divisions can come in the form of new products, services, sections or entire companies (such as after a merger or acquisition) with their own individual offerings.

The architecture of the brand illustrates how the sub-brands of a master brand are organised and the relationship they have with one another and the master brand itself.

Brand Architecture Definition

Brand architecture can be distilled and defined as:

The structure of brands within an organisational entity

Think of brand architecture as the organisational chart of brands.

Instead of structurally positioning personnel of the organisation, the chart structurally positions brands of the organisation.
