BRAND GUIDELINES

BREATHTAKING ADVENTUROUS EDGY MOODBOARD RORA’s brand is dark and moody with a romantic, breathtaking sense of adventure. The swirling design elements are symbolic of the northern lights and Icelandic landscapes that inspired the creation of the brand. They also represent movement in film. The unique letterforms are inspired by nordic design and give the brand an edgy and creative feel.

MINIMUM SIZE The smallest the logo should be represented is 1� wide.

BRAND GUIDELINES


PRIMARY LOGO RORA’s primary logo is a simple wordmark. The main lettering style is bold and edgy with a subtle nordic influence. The swirl under the O mimics the waving lines of the northern lights and also represents movement in film. The overall style feels fresh and creative with a unique personality. This is the main logo that will be used across primary brand applications. This trademark helps audiences easily identify the website, social media presence, ads, and other materials, and enhances the professionalism of the brand. It is essential to the success of the brand that the logo always be applied with care and respect in every application according to these guidelines.

WORDMARK

SECONDARY LOGOS

A) stacked

RORA’s secondary marks can be used in replace of the primary logo (but should never be used directly next to the primary logo). For instance, don’t use A as the profile picture if the primary logo is used for the header – it looks repetitive and isn’t a good use of the brand elements.

SYMBOL

B) symbol C) diamond

The symbol can be used when the full primary logo is not necessary or in cases where the brand name is already displayed in plain text. For example, the symbol could be used as a profile picture on Instagram since the username will be adjacent to it in

plain text.

BRAND GUIDELINES


CLEAR SPACE To ensure legibility, always keep a minimum clear space around the logo. This space isolates the mark from any competing graphic elements like other logos or body copy that might conflict with, overcrowd, and lessen the impact of the mark.

The minimum clear space is defined as the height of the squiggle. This minimum space should be maintained as the logo is proportionally resized.

BRAND GUIDELINES


PHOTO BACKGROUND There are a couple ways the logo can be used on photographic backgrounds, but each option should be exercised with care, making sure the logo and type aren’t obstructed by the image. In most cases, you can use either a solid white or solid black logo on top of a background image. TIPS: 1. Photos with shallow depths-of-field work best. 2. Avoid busy images with too much detail. 3. Applying a darker transparent overlay on an image helps makes text more readable.

FINAL COMMENTS If ever in doubt, just refer back to this guide or feel free to get ahold of me (corinne@stuckwithpins.com). These guidelines are fairly flexible and should allow for enough creative freedom to use the logos as you see fit while still making sure the brand looks its best across all applications.
