Why is brand important?

A brand is a person’s collective experiences of an organization. Everything our audience remembers through communications, personal experience, word of mouth, and every other interaction makes up the brand for our organization. Our brand strategy guides how we think, act, and communicate with our audience and informs them how to engage with us. More than a mere definition, it is about the way our audience experiences Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and the everlasting impression of the university.

The Explorer

The Islander brand can be described through the archetype of The Explorer. This archetype sees life as a journey. The Explorer persona seeks to experience a better, more fulfilling, and authentic life.

Explorers like to experience new things and stay off the grid. They represent 9% to 10% of the population, and do not depend on others for self-awareness.

They do not like to be caged in and are very independent.

Being an Explorer isn’t just about exploring the physical world, it is also about exploring a sense of identity.
