For companies to stay ahead of the curve, many brands tend to lean into a complete overhaul and rebrand an established look and feel. Yet, there are many simple ways to refresh your brand’s image without rebranding completely. This month, Forbes Agency Council shared 15 effective ways to update a brand’s image without starting from square one with a brand refresh. 

ArtVersion, a veteran when it comes to brand refreshes for clients, chimed in to share their take on how to cultivate a fresh feel for any brand. Goran Paun shared that a brand refresh can evoke a new style by aligning style and tone with a brand’s mission and promise. This initiative, as shared by Paun, can begin with human-centric design thinking at the forefront. In tandem, while considering your users, and aligning organization values, this can be seamlessly achieved.
