Brand Aesthetics In Uniform Design

Getting the aesthetics of your corporate uniform right can have a positive effect on the profitability of your company. The aesthetics of your uniform considers; how your staff look in it, the feelings that it evokes in your customers, where it positions you in the market place and how memorable it is. A visually appealing uniform has an effortless way of attracting customers.

As a company, you need to decide what message you would like your uniform to convey to your customers. This message will be communicated via the brand name, logo, style and visual appearance of your uniform and will quite often leave a lasting impression.

The Look

First impressions count. Your customers base their judgements on what they see. Within the first 3 seconds of meeting staff, your customers have made evaluations about them and the kind of business you are operating. These often influence their perception even after interactions.

Having a strong visual presence which can be quickly absorbed will help to propel your business ahead of your competition. Your employees are the first point of contact your clients make with your business, therefore putting your best foot forward is crucial. How professional and trustworthy your employees appear and the culture of your company can all be communicated by the uniform your staff wear.

A uniform communicates many messages through colour, texture, shape and cut. It should be visually appealing and differentiate you from your competitors.
