To predict future scenarios and anticipate challenges we this method…
Design is our core business; we have been active in design since 1999 in Amsterdam.
Confidence in design
In China, we noticed that design has various meanings and we have seen so many clients with design challenges.
Challenges of our Chinese clients range from:
- Why western clients do not like our logo?
- Why is our identity perceived as low-end?
- How come my product offer looks scattered?
- Why is my store not attractive?
- How do I use design as a strategic management tools?
- How I know which web-design my clients like?
- Why is my packaging not attractive?
- Why I can’t ask 6-8 times the OEM price, like competitors?
Role of Design
Often our clients do not use design as a strategic tool.
Designers are used when there is no budget left, no time left, and no one knows what the boss wants. Actually, many decision makers do not know what they want.
And designers often are lost inside company. They have no voice.
Orange Branding has experience with hundreds of Chinese, Asian, American, European, Australian, African, Latin American clients.
We always focus on:
- Creating a brand essence and define what we design on the brand.
- Design as a strategic management tool
- Design management: Control the process
- Design Management: Manage our client and team
- Process: design a process adapted to the clients’ results
- Fast development times while delivering high quality
- Designing what clients will buy, and convert sales
- Proving our design is liked by clients using AI and A/B testing

VIS – Visual Identity System design
A logo is a visual mark that is linked to a brand name and trademark. Besides we create brand names, we also build full identity systems that are more than just a logo. We help our clients through a proven process to create an international identity.
CIS – Corporate Identity System design
Where a VIS mostly is used outside the company, a CIS is the internal branding inside the company. Employer branding helps companies to align teams to the brand and work with the same value proposition. It can also guide new talents to join your team.
PPIS – Products & Packaging Identity System
80% of clients sell a product, also our back ground for the last 20 years has been in product design, engineering, production.

We also consider your current positioning whether this is budget, good, better, best, premium or luxury.

CJM – Customer Journey Mapping
A Customer Journey Map is a visual map of every experience your customers might have with you online (e.g. Amazon and social) and offline (e.g. product and packaging). A CJM tells the story of your customer’s experience with your brand from the first engagement and into becoming a brand ambassador.
DIS – Digital Identity System
During your CJM, you will find that there are many ways your customers connect with you online, your site, your social channels, your e-shop, your email, your receipt, your online service, and when you grow on average 11+ channels and growing. So you want to make sure each channel has the right brand message for the right target group without being repetitive and boring.
SIS – Store Identity System and Retail design
Online is popular, but retail is not dead. Working with large and small retailers, we know the challenges. We use our inhouse team to collectively deliver cool, engaging, exciting or just relevant store concept designs for one store, pop-ups, shop-in-shop, Point of Sales (POS), and chain stores. We design floor planning, ideate adjacencies and VM, detail fixtures and communication, while keeping in mind time, quality, budget and what matters to you, from brand wall, façade, storage, reputation, or fame. We also provide blue prints so you can repeat your retail concepts to new places.
VM – Visual merchandising
Just a product won’t do in this time and age. Customers but also buyers and wholesalers want to see a store concept, either online or offline. Our idea of Visual merchandising is that a product is presented within a family, next to the right product categories to catch the eye of the buyer. For large retailers, we create exciting VM plans that engage consumers or an additional plan to their online strategy for increased efficiency and more results.
