What is Environmental Branding?

Interior design breathes life into your experience of a space. A component of interior design is environmental branding, where the visual and emotional elements of your brand are translated into the physical world.

Environmental branding is integral to the process of interior design. It is an extremely effective way to bring your brand to the forefront of clients, customers, and staff. The built environment should capture your brand’s voice and persona. This encourages brand recognition and loyalty by customers and users. It’s not just logos, colors, or fonts—a true brand experience is much more than that. It encompasses how users think and feel about your organization.

A brand is a thoughtful story, that taps into as many senses as possible. This includes interior and exterior architecture, finishes, material palettes, specialty lighting, signage, graphic imagery, technology, and various décor—these can all support the branded message and emotion you want users to remember and value. Everyone’s space has the opportunity to convey a message. What will your space say?

As engineers, architects, and designers, our role extends far beyond just blueprints. The comfort and safety of the building’s occupants is an essential consideration in design. Great office design will install measures to address potential work hazards and keep staff and data safe from the very beginning of the design process. In other words, prevention is the best policy.
The Beauty of Function
While earlier we focused primarily on low voltage design, now it’s time to dive deeper into its close relation: audio/visual (AV) design.
