It goes beyond that now as people identify brands like any other human. That is, they connect on an emotional level and not abstract.
Building a brand personality is building an individual with human attributes. This works when you constantly work with visuals and push your message. Either through images or symbols and texts. Through this process, you then match up your messaging to your personality. This will ensure the completion of your brand’s personality.
