Brand identity is not only seen in logo design but in every aspect of our daily lives such as in social media, packaging design, promotional visuals and etc. This research seeks the answers of why the illustrative branding is needed, how they are created, what ideas they bear and how the themes are applied to brands. Within the scope of this research, visual analysis method, that is to decode the visuals through examples, is used.
