Branding trends for 2024


1. Harness the power of AI


In 2024, expect even more AI-driven branding tools that can elevate your brand’s impact. AI will enable brands to customise their content and recommendations tailored to individual customers, enhancing the overall customer experience and increasing the likelihood of customer engagement and purchases. Branding strategies will shift towards a more data-driven approach, facilitated by AI, enabling brands to efficiently gather and analyse extensive volumes of customer data for strategic insights.


2. Motion design in brands


We’re anticipating a significant role for motion design within brand identities – whether that’s kinetic type or logo icons, motion will be shaping brand identities in 2024. We are always seeking fresh ways to convey authenticity and distinctiveness, and putting greater importance on motion should carry the creative weight. Our motion designer is increasingly tasked with dynamically and expressively narrating brand stories and we expect this trend will continue to evolve.


3. Elevate customer experience

Prioritising customer experience is crucial to ensure positive interactions at every stage, from the initial engagement with your brand to the final touchpoint. Looking ahead to 2024, there is a notable shift towards brands placing greater emphasis on crafting personalised and immersive customer experiences. This may be through augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) to offer interactive engagements. Additionally, brands are anticipated to leverage data for tailoring all experiences, delivering personalised recommendations that enhance the overall customer journey.

4. Master the art of storytelling

As long as we can remember, storytelling has served as a compelling tool for forging emotional connections with audiences. In 2024, we anticipate a heightened emphasis on storytelling within brand strategies.


Brands should build narratives to articulate their own stories, align with the values of their customers, and cultivate a community spirit around their identity. Weaving these into various facets of a brand, including marketing campaigns, social media strategies through to product interfaces, you’ll see the profound impact of storytelling in resonating with your audience.


5. Embrace sustainability


Brands with a noble cause will shine in 2024. Embrace sustainable branding practices in response to the growing environmental consciousness by incorporating eco-friendly materials, minimising your carbon footprint, and championing social causes.


The impact of climate change is reshaping design trends, with brands increasingly committed to eco-conscious strategies in packaging design and manufacturing. This shift is influencing design approaches, leading to innovations like package-less packaging, edible packaging, and the use of paper-pulp materials. What does that mean for brand designers? Reshifting how we think about reduced space on-pack graphics, POS designs and more digital designs, emphasising the need for creative thinking in conveying authentic brand messaging and providing unique solutions within these constraints.


6. Authenticity matters


Consumers are inclined to favour brands they view as genuine. In 2024, there is an anticipated emphasis on brands prioritising authenticity in their communication and marketing efforts. This involves fostering transparency regarding their values, products, services, and business practices. Additionally, brands are expected to engage in authentic interactions with their customers to build trust and credibility.

Additionally, brands can engage in genuine conversations with customers, actively responding to feedback, addressing concerns, and showcasing the human side of the brand through authentic interactions on social media platforms or customer service channels.


7. Minimalism and simplicity


Minimalistic branding focuses on simplicity, clean lines, and uncluttered visuals. This trend resonates with consumers seeking clarity and elegance in a world filled with information overload. It’s a great way to stand out and stays true to the expression ‘less is more’.


8. Pantone’s colour of the year for 2024: Peach Fuzz


In Pantone’s words “Subtly sensual, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz is a heartfelt peach hue bringing a feeling of kindness and tenderness, communicating a message of caring and sharing, community and collaboration.” – expect to see this lovely colour on display its presence in both the physical and digital world.


These trends are your compass to connect and build strong relationships with your target audience. To bring these strategies to life, consider collaborating with a seasoned branding agency.
