Corporate identity refers to who the organization is and what it does. Every institution needs an identity for increasing the quantity of products and for sustainable sustainable development. The ways in which institutions present their identity and the way they express themselves symbolically are becoming more and more important. In the period when tradition is at the forefront, businesses have attempted to create a corporate visual identity to show the quality of their products. Therefore, they needed designers.
