Visual language of a brand is what helps companies to communicate with people, to stand out from all the other brands.
Visual language of a company embraces all the elements of the brand style and tone. It includes all the design elements company is using: colors, shapes, composition, typography and many more.
A well-developed brand visual language helps a company to create strong emotional connections with consumers.

Okay, enough examples! Let’s talk about why creating a unique brand language for your taxi business is so essential.
First of all, the market of taxi apps is huge. Not only is it huge, it is also pretty overcrowded. To compete with Uber and other peer-to-peer companies, one has to come up with something really outstanding.
You can stand out because your service types are crazily innovative. Say, while everybody is providing cabs and limos, you arrange bike equipages for the just-married couples. Ideas of this kind are not easy to come to, especially if you want to generate serious revenue asap.
In such a case, it’s time to think of another way to stand out boldly: creating a brand identity for your taxi business. Creating a brand identity that would appeal to your target audience the most, that would attract as many engaged clients to your business as possible.
What kind of brand identity is that? Let’s move on to the next lesson!
