I want to make a slogan in English. What I want is, my brand slogan is grammatically correct and accordance to below conditions.

  1. Following brand names, like:

[BRAND NAME]. [slogan]

  1. Sentence patterns (inspired by "keep calm and ...")

You sleep, I code. I [slogan]

You are sleeping, I am working. I [slogan]

  1. Even printed-out independent typography design on a product (like "JUST DO IT")

My current work for my brand slogan is "make a difference". So, if this slogan applies to the conditions above, it's like:

[BRAND NAME]. Make a difference

You sleep, I code. I make a difference

You are sleeping, I am working. I make a difference

Printed out a "Make a difference" on a Tshirt

Other people say it's right. But in point one, It must use "makes", not "make". That's not what I want, because I just want to create one slogan, for consistency.

Is the "make a difference" grammatically correct to above conditions? or there is a sentence closest to this one? thanks in advance.

  • if you just say 'make a difference' then it is imperative, so you are telling somebody to make a difference. That sounds right to me in that case, but it might be helpful to have a little more context in terms of what meaning you want. Jan 23, 2020 at 10:12
  • Does "just do it" is imperative sentence? Jan 23, 2020 at 15:50
  • FYI, my brand is about clothes. I want my customer feels difference when using my products. Jan 23, 2020 at 15:50
  • Yeah make a difference would mean you were literally were telling them to make a difference. Just do it would also be imperative, also that's already a slogan for some sportswear company or other Jan 23, 2020 at 17:08

    I also think your “Make a difference.” is perfectly idiomatic as an imperative slogan, just like “Just do it.” By searching online, you will notice that “Make a difference.” is used by many other businesses/organizations. Jan 24, 2020 at 0:41
