TIPS: What is Artist Branding and What Does it Mean?
The philosophy of living or acting according to one’s name is important especially among the Chinese. The thought of it brings me to understand the meaning behind artist branding. Somehow branding if regularly associated to someone, that person becomes synonymous to the brand or name referred to him or her. Branding is free naming. Once a thing or person is branded, they are both remembered and recognized by the brand or name attached to them. Artist branding happens when a certain personality who is extraordinary in his or her performance as an artist is given a distinct or unique brand.
Artist branding literally means “a creator who has become a unique symbol”, but this meaning is only skin deep so to say. The term has got some deeper, more pervasive, and free meaning. The branding of an artist makes him authentic, confident, independent, and even prosperous. By becoming a brand artist, you connect directly on line or otherwise with your patrons, fans, and collectors. The growing family of supporters and recognizers facilitates creation of a foundation of economic base which is least affected by economic slumps or other financial challenges. When an artist’s talent is in harmony with his individuality and its core purpose, he earns name for himself. And the world recognizes it and acknowledges it, too.
Music artists for instance have their own branding which is associated to the kind of songs they render before their audience. But artist branding does not happen in an instant. A certain artist is branded as such when the public keeps on observing the same and unique feature or style distinct of that artist. Once an artist is branded, he or she is consequently known or made popular of because of such branding. But there is no guarantee for any artist to be beholden to the branding as public perception will change the branding any time they please. Artist branding happens without plan. It is an unrestrained disposition of the fans or audience to make such naming.
