TYPOGRAPHY

DAYS TYPEFACE Days is a great free based typeface found on Behance. It’s a real treasure for headlines. It’s clean, rounded, modern & is full of character. Although there is a strong geometric feel it is very friendly & sturdy. These are perfect characteristics for the KURB Brand’s logo & identity. Days typeface is a display font meant for use in large sizes & works effectively in capitalized letters. It was designed by Aleksey Maslov, Ivan Gladkikh, Alexandr Kalachë.

WHY DAYS ? Days is the perfect typeface for KURB. The wonderful rounded corners of the strongly built characters showcase an elegant yet bold feel. The slight slant in such letters as the A & K suggest an energy, movement & flow strength that goes hand in hand with extreme biking.


TYPOGRAPHY

CALIBRI TYPEFACE Calibri is a humanist sans-serif typeface family under the Microsoft ClearType Font Collection. Calibri was designed by Lucas de Groot. This is a perfect clean, geometric, yet rounded, type for Secondary font applications within the KURB identity & web. Calibri has four faces in the family; REGULAR, ITALIC, BOLD & BOLD ITALIC

TYPOGRAPHY

HEADINGS & COPY Heading should always be DAYS CAPS in black. Although if the background value is not cooperative then the 85% or 50% grey values or white will substitute. Calibri Sub Heads & Body Copy should be set in 85% Grey when ever possible but the same rules apply to the Sub-Headings & Body Copy as the Heading.

LOGO

LOGO SPECS The full logo is scaled based on the white circle in the icon. Each character is the same width as the diameter of the circle. On the Horizontal line the spacing around the circle to the outer edges is .25 units wide as well as the space between the icon & wordmark. The letters are kerned to optical perfection using the left over .25 unit. The same applies to the vertical nature of the three circles & the remaining space of the icon.

LOGO

ICON SPECS The icon is based on a link of a bike chain. This chain link is the perfect representation of bikes because it is of its perfect form. It is a very curvilinear yet strong form in itself. Since KURB is about understanding all the components of bikes & being able to link them together to build your perfect ride then the physical job of the bike chain link is a perfect comparison. The placement of the three links are important as well because they symbolise the 3 types of extreme bikes and the unity of having a perfect bike.

This is the reformed verson of the linking chain.

This is an exact likeness of bike chain links. 31


LOGO

LOGO VARIATIONS The full colour versions can be used on many different backgrounds. The variations are to be used when full colour cannot be used, where the background is too busy or when the logo would become lost.

LOGO

INCORRECT USAGE Much thought and effort has been put into the KURB Identity and it would be a shame to wreck it. The logo, icon or wordmark should not be stretched, compressed, rotated independently, skewed, discoloured or distorted in any way.

33


PRINTS

Print Documents The main print documents will be in the form of posters, banners and flyers. Some documents might need to be put in production like invoices or letters. The posters will need to showcase action shots of either mountain, BMX or trials bike riders. The KURB Logo should always be in the frame of the photo in some scale.
