2. What Should Companies Consider to Make Sound a Part of Their Brand DNA and Add Value?
For sound to become an integral part of a brand’s DNA and add value, it’s essential to understand which brand values and attributes can be expressed through sound. Once the strategy is in place and the sound elements are implemented, it’s crucial to ensure their consistent and persistent use, similar to rules in visual design. A proper sound identity provides measurable benefits in terms of brand recognition, differentiation, positioning, and memory retention. Additionally, a standardized sound profile contributes to a more professional overall brand perception, while retaining the emotional influence of music.
3. What are the Must-Have Elements for a Brand’s Audio Business Card?
Determining the essential elements for a brand’s audio business card varies based on the brand’s specific requirements. An auditory customer journey is utilized to map out potential future sound elements. For example, Groves supports brands like Hevert-Arzneimittel and Olympus, tailoring the strategy to their specific needs. Key components often include a sound logo, brand theme, brand voices, and call center sound design. However, the range of sound elements can be more extensive depending on the brand’s requirements, such as custom soundscapes in e-health apps or designing product sounds for global brands.
4. How Can Brand Values Be Expressed in Sound?
To express brand values in sound, the process is made transparent and understandable, even for clients with limited musical knowledge. A clustering method is used to map brand attributes and values to musical parameters like tempo, mood, and complexity. After conceptualization, the production phase evaluates how these attributes resonate with the target audience. Market research then verifies whether the intended values are effectively communicated. Distinctiveness is achieved through a competitive analysis of sound elements used by rivals.
