BENEFITS OF GUIDELINES

va l u e

purpose

use

To understand the function and value of The Hayloft Boutique identity, it is important to recognize that every organization has a specific identity system—a system that is partly formed by the look of its printed materials, stationery, website, etc.

The purpose of this manual is to explain the components of The Hayloft Boutique’s visual identity system, to define its graphic design standards, and to illustrate how these standards are applied. These standards depend on relative size, proportion, and position of individual elements.

Guidelines establish a rulebook for a group of individuals that work on the company materials. The use of guidelines ensure how the visual identity should appear across all media. These guidelines help your company hold the value in its visual identity for many years through the proper use of its components.

Each component of communication contributes to the overall impression people have of the organization. When an organization’s identification program is a coordinated one, it projects a unified character, which works effectively to reinforce all of its activities. In many cases, it also helps the organization to be more cost-effective in its communication efforts by simplifying certain decision-making processes.

THE HAYLOFT BOUTIQUE | 4

They have been developed through careful consideration of many factors, both functional and aesthetic. Adhering to these standards and guidelines will ensure continuity, a high standard of quality, and a clear, consistent identity for The Hayloft Boutique.


COMPONENTS OF THE IDENTITY SYSTEM The Hayloft Boutique visual identity system consists of: •Monogram •Signature and •Logotype The monogram and signature is available in a preferred version for most uses, and alternate versions, which Monogram

may be used in specific applications. See pages 6–7 for detailed information on using various versions of the monogram and signature. Each configuration that combines the monogram and signature in a defined relationship is referred to as a “Lockup.” See pages 8–15 for detailed information on using the lockups. Signature The logotype is a restrictive-use option and may be used in contexts with space constraints where the organization needs to be endorsed in a flexible manner. See pages 12–15 for detailed information on using various versions of the logotype.

Monogram The Hayloft Boutique monogram is intended for use on

applications where the width of the monogram is more than or equal to 1/4 inch. The artwork of the monogram has been modified for reproduction at this small scale and can be used as small as 1/4 inch wide. The monogram may never be used at sizes smaller than 1/4 inch wide. The monogram may be used independent of the signature 0.25″ (Min. Width)

in appropriate contexts. See pages 8–15 for the available “lockups” which combine the monogram and the signature for appropriate use. The Hayloft Boutique monogram may be reproduced using the core color palette or in black & white. In contexts where the use of color is not an option, or when The Hayloft Boutiques’ core colors conflict with the application, the monogram may

be reproduced in black or white. See page 16 for the Pantone colors, CMYK, RGB, and HEX values

Monogram Clearspace To maintain the integrity of the monogram, a certain amount of space around the lockup must be kept clear of competing visual elements. The area around the lockup should always provide ample space so that the balance and wholeness of the lockup is not violated by the competing elements. The diagram on the left shows the correct amount of space that should surround the monogram.
