The Evolution of the Help Scout Brand

There are only a few things to obsess over in the earliest days of starting a company. Building a product that solves a problem for your customers is the obvious first step.

Individually, they reinforce and even further develop important points in a piece of writing; collectively, they coalesce to form your brand's visual fingerprint.
