Choose your colour
First consider your industry sector, logo and brand colours – the colour you choose must reflect your company aptly. The colour of your branded USB stick will be the first thing people notice. Most of the time, companies will already have colours associated with their brand, but if you are unsure which colour to choose, we have listed a few ideas below to help you:
Red – typically associated with passion, fire and intensity
Orange – typically associated with enthusiasm, creativeness and determination
Yellow – typically associated with energy, freshness and happiness
Green – typically associated with nature, sustainability and peace
Blue – typically associated with calm, depth, understanding and clarity
Purple – typically associated with royalty, romance, introspection and beauty
Black – typically associated with formality, seriousness, boldness and luxury
Pink – typically associated with femininity, sweetness and love
Brown – typically associated with reliability, support and nurture
Select your shape

Design & typography
Of course, the most important feature of your branded USB stick will be the positioning of your logo, including the writing and design you use to attract customers. As one of the main features, it is important to carefully consider how you will do this.
In a similar vein to the shape and colour, choosing the right font and design is imperative to ensuring you get your brand across in the right way. The font and style will vary depending on the nature of your business – these must match the mood and feel of your brand, they must be readable and must emphasise the salient qualities of your brand.
Fonts can be broken down into the following categories:
Serif – traditional and classic, often used to convey authority, reliability, confidence and respect – used by HSBC, Tiffany & Co and CBS TV network
Sans Serif – clean, simple & contemporary, used by many companies as it is easy to read on a screen – used by Facebook and YouTube
Script – gives the feeling of elegance, creativity and friendliness – employed by companies such as Cartier, Instagram and Coca-Cola
Novelty – used to convey quirkiness, fun and boldness, designed to be eye-catching and flash
