Depthskins Brand Guide by depthskins Depthskins Brand Guide by depthskins

Client:
Depthskins Design Studio

Problem:
Simple, create a document that would outline how Depthskins' logo should be used. However, these documents go much beyond that in that it defines colour, typography, icons, and even our behaviour.

Solution:
A Brand Guide.
I went for a clean, simple layout for this and it somewhat matched the theme of the website for consistency.

Great editorial practice. The first one I did was different but I found after a couple weeks not looking at it, when I returned, I just wasn't feeling it. So I decided to use the letterhead layout which worked fine.

When did you change this? I thought I remembered it looking like the quote you sent me.

Also, if you go on last.fm you'll get one on the resource page. It's not highly detailed but works for the general public.

Thanks a lot, I'm gonna look for a few more around the web. I'm really aiming to improve my conceptual design at the moment. Much appreciated.

nice one, great seeing a company with a brand and style guide, nothing worse than seeing clients who screw everything up by altering it themselves to what they think will look good :(

I remember reading UPS's brand guide once. I get chills up and down my spine just thinking about it. >_< X heights and distances from the edge of plane tails...oh god.

Yours is much more elegant.

lmao. yea, I went through a lot of brand guides. Some are detailed, some aren't. Mine is 35 pages but as you can see, only half filled with info.
