  1. Dear Karlheinz, I think you need a few more parameters to the definition.
    My opinion that there more options to consider, not only recognition, but also differentiation, flexibility, involvement, expirience, consistence and personality.

  2. Hi Birgitte,
    this is a definition of the term “Sound Identity”. What you mean is the process of developing Sound Branding Elements (->). In that sense you’re absolutely right. Moreover you should add technical limitations and cultural considerations.
