“In an age which many people crave a deeper sense of connection to their work and want business to demonstrate greater integrity and accountability, the creative and mindful attention to archetypes can facilitate a more authentic, holistic and human way of being in business.” - Hartwell & Chen, Archetypes in Branding
In a market where every brand is fighting for the customer's attention, knowing and building upon a brand archetype allows organizations to cut through the noise and effectively speak to ideal clients and employees. Brand archetypes create brand meaning, align ideal customers with an organization's offerings, increase brand trust, and most importantly define and clearly articulate an organization's core values.
