Simply it's a case of launching my own OS , hence the need of branding. Does it makes sense ?

For new projects I think it makes much more sense to do the changes
needed inside of Debian and create a Debian Pure Blend instead of a
Debian derivative:

https://wiki.debian.org/DebianPureBlends
http://mentors.debian.net/intro-maintainers

If you still plan to go ahead with creating a derivative, please
review our guidelines for derivatives:

Which other changes do you plan to do? What are your reasons for
wanting to alter the branding?

Others already pointed you to live-build. You could also look at the
tools used for building the Debian Installer and CDs:
