By using colours like black and white through out the ancillary tasks and the film. By using the brand logo throughout all of the products. There are several main techniques we used to maintain the brand image. And by maintaining the fantasy style throughout the products. By constantly using fantasy mystery throughout our products.

Coming from a land far away into one he dose not know, 4)The sharp out line of the logo is to show his precision and skill. Having to sharpen his skills just to survive.
