What is a brand?
When we question about the definition of the word “brand”, we think that a brand is a symbol, a name, an identity, a figure and/or a three-dimensional shape used by manufacturers, merchants, independent professionals, entities or companies to identify the products or the services of their activities.
By means of the brand, the products and the services are differentiated, identified and individualized on the consumer market.
