THE TECHNICAL DIMENSION OF A BRAND

THE IMPORTANCE OF TERMINOLOGY

Brand Identity Manual

vs Brand Book

Brand identity manual

In terms of design, the visual identity manual is a technical guide that presents the graphical standards and application specifications for the logo and the branding visual elements.

The guide includes technical information – color codes for print and web, recommended sizes, related symbols, letter characters and applications to help a designer create promotional materials according to brand guidelines.

We think design is defined by more than a set of rules, we focus on how we can create functional visual communication to create branding applications for the use and delight of real people.
