Branding Moments: Brand Consistency In Robin's Egg Blue!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

Brand consistency in every form is important to remain top of mind.  As we were walking in La Cumbre Plaza, we noticed the robin egg blue water dish for dogs.  Look at the water reflecting the true robin egg blue as the dish was in the shadow of a column.

Here is the store entrance. Note the ornaments and the gift boxes.  Can you guess the brand?

Here is the wreath on the wall.  It is full of diamonds and other sparkling items wrapped in the signature blue box with white ribbon.  By now you probably guessed that these photos were taken at the Tiffany store in Santa Barbara.  


The robin egg blue color is trademarked.  It identifies the Tiffany brand.  Even though the holidays are here the blue remains! These three photos reveal the importance of consistency in robin egg blue!

You are right, keeping it consistent helps the brand stick in people's minds. I like that they selected a speical color to remember.

They were quite consistent with their color.  Robin egg blue - When I was a kid my mom and dad bought a car in that color!  But, we didn't have the dog bowl to match!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I knew it was Tiffany's but Fortnum and Mason in the UK also has that same hue. You would probably have to hold the boxes together to see the difference.

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert They are close,

That's true attention to detail, when the dog's dish matches the brand!  They must have some serious branding consultants.  Would Tiffany be one of yours?

Hi Alexandra and Ron --- mention the name Tiffany and then add blue certainly presents a very recognizable image for many.
