LOGOS


MAKING OUR MARK.

A logo is the face and signature of the brand. It connects the brand to all forms of communication. The more consistent a logo looks and is used – the more likely it will be remembered and make an impact. Each communication needs to be able to stand alone as a proper representation of the brand, but also gain strength as a cohesive and integrated collection of materials. These guidelines provide direction for how the Four Quadrants Memorial Hospital logo should be used to help unify materials and continue to build the brand. Visit fourquadrantsmemorial/brand to download the approved versions of the logo.

PRIMARY PICTORIAL MARK.

The primary mark for Four Quadrants Memorial Hospital represents not only the location, but also a reflection of who we are. The mark is designed through the concept of a numerical four, combined with the medical cross and a connected intersection. Four Quadrants Memorial is located inside the historical four quadrants of Washington, DC. A location enriched in historical culture and progressive advancement. A broad, sturdy logo the pictorial mark stands out through any applied use. With a longer horizontal arm (3/4 in.) to help establish the same arm length and with the additional use of a 45o angle as a numerical four. The mark must contain a porpotion consistant to about (3/4 in.), do not change the dimensions for the mark for any reason. For whatever the mark size is their must be a 1/2 in. or more white space surronding the logo mark.

HORIZONTAL LOGO Clear Space Requirements

The x-height of the logo is based on the height of the F in Four Quadrants. No design elements, type or photos should come any closer to the logo than ½ x. The actual distance of x will change depending on how large the logo is scaled.

Proportion

The primary mark and type should always be kept in proper proportion to maintain the integrity of the logo. Always use the approved logo files and use only vector files of the logo when printing. Never try to recreate the logos yourself, but if you need to scale the logo, always constrain proportions so the height and width are scaled together. To maintain the correct proportions of the brick logo, always hold down the shift key as you drag the corner to increase or decrease its size.

Size

The logo should not appear smaller than 1 3/8" in any printed material, or 100 pixels wide on screen.

VERTICAL LOGO The vertical logo is set up for a more applied use. The stacked version creates a more sturdier and stronger approach to the mark. Reasons for using the stacked version would included vinyl automotive wraps, uniform layouts, entrance signs and much more. All rules regarding the horizontal logo apply also to the vertical.

PLACEMENT Location

For all medical complex communications, the logo should be placed in the bottom-left corner ¼” to ¾” from the edges of the page. The logo should never be placed against the edge of the page as a bleed because when the page is trimmed the logo is often cropped disproportionately violating the logo standards. The Four Quadrants logo should always appear on the cover of any piece of communication. The Four Quadrants woodmark is allowed to be used throughout all applications. Must regulate to Woodmark personal restrictions and uses.

TYPOGRAPHY


READ WHAT WE’RE SAYING.

From way points to flyers to brochures, typefaces can help unify the look of many different types of materials. Even with pieces that may have different photos or layouts, the typeface is an obvious element that, when used consistently, can unify all the materials. A uniform typeface also gives personality to the design while conveying expertise in what’s being said and how it’s presented.

TYPOGRAPHY 22


PRIMARY TYPEFACE Our primary Typeface that we used for Four Quadrants is Gotham HTF. The wide variety of the family gives us a versatile, ampled type for our designs. The structure of the typeface is simple so it’s easy to read, but it maintains an elegantly modern feel that adds a level of sophistication to the design. It was designed as a full system of fonts with a range of weights for almost any typographical need. Condensed version can be used for type that needs to be used in a preticular area, and remain legiable from a distinct size. Long form copy, however, may be harder to read in Gotham HTF Condensed. Gotham HTF may be a better option in these cases. Headlines or headings should be at least 2 points larger than body copy.

COMPLEMENTARY TYPEFACE

Constantia

If circumstances require a serif for long form copy like an annual report or more formal communications like an invitation, you may consider using the complementary typeface, Constantia. This typeface was inspired by classical typefaces for an elegant and functional design. It should be used secondarily to Gotham HTF and not in headlines.

Constantia Regular ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 1234567890

Body copy can be set at 9 to 14 point, but 9 point is standard for long form copy.

TYPOGRAPHY 24


COLOR


COLORING WITHIN THE LINES.

Hospitals understand the importance of color in creating a calm and refreshing enviroment. The power of Four Quadrants purples is obvious at every clinical complex floor. Color can be just as powerful in other forms of communication as well. When used consistently, colors help make a brand more cohesive and recognizable. Colors can become as identifiable as the logo or the name, but only if they are used consistently and correctly.

COLOR 26


PRIMARY COLOR PALETTE.

All three purples comprise the primary color palette. They should be the dominant colors used when designing all print materials. Royal Purple should appear in every piece of communication that allows color. Royal purple type, however, should not be used for long lists or lengthy copy blocks. The colors in the primary color palette should always cover more area or be used more than any other color that appears in the material. CMYK colors are provided to allow for exact matching.

MID–DAY PURPLE

CMYK: 19, 49, 0, 60

BRAND BOOK

FOURQUADRANTS


SECONDARY COLOR PALETTE

The secondary color Palette is used for when the primary palette is unusable or unsuitable for the project, and also as a complement to the primary palette. White and the two purples are the main secondary colors that should be used. White can be used as title color or even copy color. You must have the type on a dark background if you use white type. (please follow brand architecture for correct uses) Purple on the other hand may be used for occasional uses, but only if primary colors are unsuitable.

CMYK: 0, 0, 0, 0

CMYK: 49, 88, 11, 1

The secondary colors for the Secondary palette are the family of tan colors. Mainly used for backgrounds, these colors are not intended for body type uses. (please follow correct and incorrect usage of using these colors.)

STATIONARY SYSTEM


PIXELS & CONTINUITY A cohesive stationery system includes letterhead, envelopes and business cards. In many cases, these materials are the first impression, so they must present a unified look. They are a key component to the brand and offer an easy way to maintain consistency across the Hospital system.

STATIONARY SYSTEM 30


LETTERHEAD & ENVELOPES.

The letterhead design is standardized to promote consistency, yet it also offers a way for units, complexes, departments and organizations to include their contact information within the design. There should be no unit–specific logos on medical complex letterhead. The left margin should be 1¾” and align with the word QUADRANTS. The right margin should be 1” and the top margin will vary according to the amount of text printed in the address section of the letterhead. Information appearing in the top margin below the horizontal logo may occupy as many as four lines of text. It is recommended that the name and address of the unit be placed in this space. Right of the horizontal logo, units may include division, department or individual names, as well as phone numbers, fax numbers and e-mail addresses. Unit-specific information appears in black and is added as orders are placed. All orders must be placed and produced through one of our approved convenience contract partners. Word document templates are available for digital use only and can be downloaded at fourquaadrantsmemorial/brand.

WEBSITE APPICATION Web application is a pivotal necessity for the health care system. Having a unified website that is available for the public helps spread the care that our hospital performs. User interface combined with design elements position our website to be an easy access for information for all patients. Simple layout design allows the site to be accessible for all ages. A secondary Spanish and Chinese sites are also available (with the use of a separate URL).

User-centric design

Through every step of Web design and development, consider the needs, goals and expectations of your site’s users. Clearly define and prioritize your audiences. Then design the content, layout, organization, navigation, structure and functionality for those audiences.

Brand consistency

Make sure your users know your site is part of Four Quadrants. Design Web sites in such a way that every element of the site supports the Four Quadrants brand. Use the Brand Book to guide the online creative process.

Strong content

Content is the heart and soul of every Web site. Without it, most sites wouldn’t exist. Create content that is engaging, interesting, up–to–date, accurate, on–brand and most importantly, relevant and valuable to your audiences.

Usability

Think about what your users want from your site. Consider how they want it to work, what words and language resonate and what information is most important to them. Make every element of the site intuitive for your users (not just for the site’s designers or department heads).

BRAND BOOK

FOURQUADRANTS

Sound visual design

Most people prefer attractive sites, but they must also be functional. Good design comes from thoughtful use of the Four Quadrants’s color palette, white space and typography while also positioning and leveraging existing Web conventions.

Structural markup Keep design and content separate. Write Web code that presents a site’s information in a structured, organized and intentional way, and use CSS to lay out the content.

Accessibility

Like our hospital, our users are diverse. Site content needs to be accessible and useful to all of those users. Four Quadrants Memorial Hospital is committed to delivering accessible Web sites.

Sustainability

Keeping sites fresh and accurate requires consistent updates, revisions and modifications. Sites should be built for simple, efficient management and evolution. Web management tools should be chosen based on the needs of the sites’ managers and contributors.

DESIGN EXAMPLES


LOOKING GOOD Everything from symbols system to banners should be designed with a consistent look. This steadfast attention to detail across every usage of design will connect the materials in a way that further reinforces and builds the brand. Because these elements are often produced through many different departments, it’s even more important to establish a consistent look that can be easily followed, duplicated and produced.

DESIGN EXAMPLES 44


SYMBOL SYSTEM. Four Quadrants Memorial Hospital contains a unique symbol system. The sole purpose of these symbols are to inform the audience in the quickest and most efficient manner possible. Many of the figures within each are made of basic rounded shapes. This is done in order for each to be easily deciphered. There is consistency within each symbol, in that they use rounded edges throughout. No potential symbol may feature sharp points of any kind, as this will break continuity within the series.
