Brand elements

Brand elements are those trademarkable devices that serve to identify and differentiate the brand such as a brand name, logo, or character.

There are six criteria for choosing brand elements. The first three- memorable, meaningful, and likeable— are “brand building.” The later three— transferable, adaptable, and protectable— are “defensive” and help leverage and preserve brand equity against challenges.
