How long will it take
to successfully brand
Every business is different and will have diverse needs. Plus, designers do not all work in the same way and sometimes it can be the client who delays the process because of other commitments that prevent them from responding in a timely way to communications from the designer.
On average though if you were starting from scratch, the first part of the branding process (i.e., logo design and overall visual identity) usually takes between 4 and 8 weeks to complete.
However, there are other elements that might take longer. This would be things such as your website design and development, signage, promotional items, larger/more complex corporate identity, printed materials, social media platform design and exhibition materials.
