Brand Experience Defined

Brand experience is the connection between your brand and the customer experience you offer from your user experience to your in-store experience and everywhere in between. 

It is the reality of what users feel when they engage or interact with your brand,

the thoughts,

feelings,

sensations,

reactions,

and connections

that users have which usually remain with them long after their interactions.  

Your brand strategy is who your brand is and the method you are using to communicate it while the manifestation of that communication is your brand expression, which typically is how consumers relate to your brand.   

As a brand, you have to understand what produces positive customer feelings and evoke them consciously from your marketing communications to the environments you create across all touchpoints of user interaction and engagement.  

These include your website, email, shopfront, social pages, downloads, product delivery, customer service, events, and more. 

Since users interact with your brand across various touchpoints, you need to create a consistent brand experience across all those touchpoints to make lasting impressions. 

 

Brand Experiential Design

Brand experiential design is a deliberate and creative way to integrate emotional connections into every fabric of your brand strategy. The elements that make up a brand experience include:  

Brand design 

Brand voice 

User experience 

Brand image, and 

Customer support 

Experiential design should be geared towards incorporating some “feel good” emotions in your product designs, website, and all other touchpoints that users have with your brand.  

Before mapping out an experiential design plan for your brand, you should think about the following: 

What the wants and needs of your audiences are? 

How your products fit into their world 

What touchpoints do you have as a brand? (web, email, shopfront, social media, etc.)?

What environments do you want or need to create? 

How will you create such environments?

What attributes do you want to communicate?

What feelings do you want to evoke?

What memories do you want to leave with them ?
