The central element of a graphic charter is the logo (logos symbols, typographic logos, and mixed logos), it is found on all communication media of the company, it is from the logo that we build a visual identity.

- Quality visual content (Photo, and/or Video)

The visual content (Photo, and/or Video) is an integral part of the design. For example, the e-boutiques that work are essentially based on this observation. It is the photos or videos that make the design. Only the addition of beautiful banners gives the atmosphere of the site or the season.
