APTA Has a New Branding Campaign

From APTA's website:  When one mentions the word "brand," often times the first thing that comes to many minds is a logo, but a brand is so much more. A brand is the core essence of a person, company, organization, or profession. It is that single, ownable thought or "mindshare" that allows for creation of a deeper, more meaningful relationship or bond with one's customers or audiences.  A solid brand allows its owner to provide and deliver on a promise to customers or, in the case of the physical therapist, patients. A strong brand builds trust and recognition and grows business."
