Brand Style Guide Brand Overview Strobe Inc
Building our brand
A brand means more than just a |ogo. lt s|gn|fes who we are and
what sets us apart in the crowd. Building our brand is getting
people to believe Strobe is the obvious choice. To do that we need
everything that says Strobe websites, speech, whatever to be
consistent in delivery and meaning.
Tools to build and grow
These gu|de||nes and assets are the bu||d|ng b|ocks for creat|ng
commun|cat|ons. They are essent|a| to our success. Each of us
shares responsibility in upholding brand standards and promoting
what we stand for.

Primary Logo
The pr|mary |ogo (shown to the r|ght} shou|d be used for
most brand app||cat|ons. ln fu|| co|or |t |s most represen-
tat|ona| of the |ogo brand. The |ogo |s made up of two
elements: the Strobe symbol and the Strobe wordmark.
When used together these components are always placed in
a fxed re|at|onsh|p and shou|d never be a|tered, mod|fed or
reproduced in any way.
A proport|ona| measur|ng system has been deve|oped for
a consistent layout use across all Strobe brand assets. The
system |s based on 'x" (the stroke we|ght of type |n the word-
mark}. The symbo| |s 8x |n he|ght and w|dth. The spac|ng
between the symbo| and wordmark |s a w|dth of 2x.

Secondary logo treatments
The secondary logo treatments should be used when the
logo must be placed on a non-white or cream background.
Beyond the designated secondary logo treatments the logo
shou|d not appear on top of any other co|or.
The background co|ors come from each co|or used |n the
primary logo symbol. The symbol is reversed out to pure
white and the wordmark color uses the lightest designated
t|nt of the correspond|ng background co|or.
