4. PHOTOGRAPHY


IMAGERY SELECTION Groundswell’s aesthetic represents the duality of industrial antiquity and contemporary style. Find natural, dynamic, and candid photos. Avoid photography that is too sterile or overly staged.

GROUNDSWELL BRAND GUIDELINES | 21


PHOTO TREATMENT Apply a grain filter and vintage color treatment to fit brand imagery. Use candid shots of all subjects. Do not use black and white images that are too professional.
