Navig8: Corporate identity

Category: Others/ Misc

Presentation Description

A corporate identity isn't just about a logo. A good corporate identity should apply itself to every aspect of an organisation, from stationary, signage, interiors, livery and publicity materials. It should be flexible, but rigid enough to be recognisable. Navig8, based in central London know this and follow our own set rules for every project to ensure that we provide our clients with the best possible corporate identity.


Presentation Transcript

A corporate identity : 

A corporate identity Your materials, from stationery, internal communications, website interface and campaigns should reflect your brand’s identity. Engaging local groups, staff, stakeholders and third parties are all part of the process that Navig8 manages and implements behalf of our clients. There are certain procedures to help educate and encourage staff, funders and trustees to buy into the new identity. These include focus groups, feedback forms, telephone marketing consultations. We always design a distinctive mark that communicate the message of our clients to their markets. Logos we design will be flexible, translate to all mediums, from the humble photocopier to new media. The identities we design will have longevity, personality and integrity.

Elements to consider : 

Elements to consider Paper The weight, colour and finish of a paper can enhance a feel or message. When we look at the paper issue, whether it’s coated or uncoated we can make a recommendation to help enhance your message whilst potentially lowering the print and production costs. Fonts Aside from the style of lettering that makes up your name, we would like to suggest associated fonts to use with materials. Firstly, we would select a font that complements the new mark. Secondly, we would suggest any further fonts needed, for instance: a generic ‘letter writing’ font and a website font. Colour During the review we will look at various different colour ways. Research into ‘tints’, overprinting techniques and potentially implementing a ‘palette’. Although the palette wouldn’t have hard and fast rules, it would go some way to keeping publicity materials ‘in line’ with each other as well as helping third party design material to keep in style. Images As apart of the ‘extended’ styleguide we would include some general comments and suggestions as to the use of imagery.

We went in to see them with literally just the machine and the remit that we wanted to get as much out of this event as possible and they had just a week to do it and not a great deal of money to spend. The ideas they came up with were incredible. Especially given the fact that they had no background in the area of Tissue Engineering. They understood the concept of what we were trying to do and why. The resulting brand identity that they came up with was fantastic.” Louise Sarup UCL Ventures
