How to use the Gingersauce brand book builder: Create a brand book online

It’s so hard to spread the word nowadays. Too expensive, too slow, too difficult. There are just too many options to choose from. In this climate, it is important that you make yourself visible on the industry map. How? By introducing your brand as if it were a person. With its own identity, values, and character. By creating a brand book.

Are you aware that brand-led businesses outperform their competitors by 83%?

Several years ago, you’d have to pay a professional design and branding agency for a brand book and wait months for results. But, luckily, we’re living in the automation age – an era where technology helps save time and make things easier. So, if you’re looking for a brand book template, or desperate enough to make one by-hand – stop. We have a solution for you.

Gingersauce is an all-in-one platform, allowing you to create a professional brand book within a few minutes. So, let’s see exactly how: the only thing you need is a logo.
