Brand archetypes help you express the personality of your brand to customers.

Based on the work of Psychologist Carl Jung, archetypes tap into the character and values of your brand, making it more relatable.  This helps you to form stronger more authentic connections and build brand loyalty.

Jungian archetypes are defined as universal, archaic symbols and images that derive from the collective unconscious. (Wikipedia)

When you do the work to clearly define and leverage your brand’s archetype, your business will be more successful in attracting and engaging the right customers.
