What is corporate identity
Graphic image of a company is an integral part of a corporate image, which influences its identity and its perception by the public and the contractors. A corporate identity determines the market value of the company and the product, while skillful management is the foundation of the occurrence and success on the market. The way how Your company will be perceived by the customers and contractors depends, to a great extent, on the visual identification system. So what is it and why is it so important in creating a company's image on the market? The concept of corporate visual identity defines the entirety of symbols and behaviors used in the company that aim at creating consistent identity and brand distinction on the market. People, in majority, are visualizers, and that is why what they can see has frequently a greater impact on the perception of the company/product than what, even the best, sales representative can present.
A company without a logo is like a man without a face
The most important visual element of company identification is its trademark or logo/logotype. It is the basis for all the visual identity, it symbolizes everything what is the company/product now, and what it will be in the future. The logo, in order to fulfill its functions, should be designed in an industrious and careful manner, should be faithfully reproduced in various printing techniques and scales regardless of whether it is displayed on a business card or on an airplane.
A logo/logotype consists the foundation for the further process of a whole identification, it is the basis for creating other elements, such as: business cards, letterhead, forms, folders, signs and other recordable media ads.
A unified visual identification system based on the elements such as logotype, color and typography creates the style by which the company or product will be identified. It inspires trust among the customers and counterparties, which contributes directly to the formation of brand on the market. The basic goals of visual identification include: drawing interest, attracting attention, differentiating from the competition, originality and attracting customers. Visual identification should be carried out in an industrialized way, conforming to the characteristics of the company, being original and attentive, it should also shape and perpetuate the positive impression.

The dynamic development of the Internet and its massive range has caused that it has become an ideal tool for advertising and promotion. In today’s increasing implementation of IT solutions in the World and society, the possibilities offered by the Internet are enormous, and the skillful use of it should be an important part of the marketing activity of every modern and successful business, both for those who have existed on the market for many years and for those, who take their first steps in the business. Just owning a website does not guarantee success, the real art is its promotion through effective use of the Internet marketing elements, especially SEO positioning.
What exactly is Internet marketing in search engines?
In short, referred to as SEM (English: Search Engine Marketing) , is a set of activities aimed at improving access and the popularity of a website in the search engines. Among many processes within the SEM there are two essential elements: PPC (Pay Per Click) and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) . What do we mean by these terms? PPC (Pay Per Click) – this is a form of advertising (most often in the form of a banner or link) for which, as literally understood, an advertiser pays per click, and not for its displaying. PPC is primarily identified with the paid search results, these are the links most often tagged as sponsored links (usually highlighting with a lighter background or border) that appear at the top of the list of results for that phrase or keyword.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) - this is a series of activities and processes that optimize the web pages in such a way that they reach the highest positions in search engine rankings. In the industry, we most often come across the term positioning and optimization of websites. It is precisely positioning that is considered to be the most significant and most effective form of promotion on the Internet. If you have ever considered, why the web sites of the competing companies (perhaps existing on the market shorter than yours) appear on the first positions in search engine results, and your web site is not even in the top ten (or worse, it is not even indexed) ? Yes, this is the effect of SEO campaigns and positioning.
So what is positioning?
As you have probably noticed having a website and adding it to the Google catalog and other search engines is not a guarantee of success in the network. If you have ever considered, why the web sites of the competing companies (perhaps existing on the market shorter than yours) appear on the first positions in search engine results, and your web site is not even in the top ten (or worse, it is not even indexed) ? Yes, this is the effect of SEO campaigns and positioning.
Why SEO is important?
Not without a reason, it is precisely positioning, which is considered to be the most important and the most effective form of online promotion. According to the latest research, 70-80% of the potential customers hit on our website by Google. Lack of presence in Google search results or ignoring positioning limits the possibility of reaching the widest possible group of the recipients on the Web, and thus it reduces the possibility of maximizing the profits of an enterprise. .
Thanks to positioning the website with the use of the selected phrases, we are sure that the users who reach it will be our target group. In other words, a user who reaches our website by typing in the search engine for eg "page design" will be aware of it, taking into account the specific product/service that he/she is interested in.
The presence of a page on Google and its high search position result in additional benefits such as increased credibility and prestige. If something is not on the Internet, it does not exist - it is quite a popular slogan, although perfectly reflecting the essence and positioning sense.
Audit and optimization
The next, but very important if not the most important, element in the positioning of a website is its optimization. What do we mean by website optimization? This is a series of actions aimed at improving website's performance both for visibility for search engines as well as transparency, navigation and usability for our visitors.
Even photos taken with the best camera may not meet our expectations. Thanks to a proper computer processing and some modifications almost every photo may be improved. Photos can be retouched and processed: brightness/contrast adjustment, colour/saturation adjustment, cropping, perspective, changes of the background, adding frames, adding special effects, adding water marks, creating composite photographs, and many more.
I retouch and process among professional photos to:
publication on the Web (for websites and social media) ;
all kind of promotional materials;
presentation of products at online stores and auction type of Ebay;
preparation of materials for printing;
multimedia presentations, albums, portfolios, etc.
Great work, full of professionalism, great contact bravo!!!
