Our logo - the expression of our visual communication Logo introduction Our Logo is the key building block of our identity, the primary visual element that identifies us. The signature is a combination

of the the symbol itself and our company name – they have a fixed relationship that should never be changed in any way.

The Full Logotype The Quantum Masterbrand or Corporate Logo comprises two elements, the logo symbol and logo type. The Logo Symbol is a powerful image evoking the culture of design services - the connection between the strength of communication and the different points that influence. It has a particular relationship with the Quantum name. The Logo Type has been carefully chosen for its modern and yet refined, highly legible style, which has been further enhanced by the use of upper

case letters. The typeface is Montserrat Bold and has also been chosen to compliment and balance perfectly with the logo symbol. The corporate logo is presented through the use of colour as well as shape and form. The two corporate colours are Yellow and Grey. It is a fresh and appealing blend of colours chosen for their strong combination - modern - classic - timeless. The Colours have been selected according to international standards as shown below and are easily implemented.

Corporate Logo

Logo Construction, Clearspace and computation It is important to keep corporate marks clear of any other graphic elements. To regulate this, an exclusion zone has been established around the corporate mark. This exclusion zone indicates the closest

any other graphic element or message can be positioned in relation to the mark.of the the symbol itself and our company name – they have a fixed relationship that should never be changed in any way.

x

Clearspace Definition Whenever you use the logo, it should be surrounded with clear space to ensure its visibility and impact. No graphic elements of any kind should invade this zone.

Computation To work out the clearspace take the height of the logo and divide it in half. (Clearspace = Height / 2).

Grid System Explanation In graphic design, a grid is a structure made up of a series of intersecting straight (vertical, horizontal, and angular) or curved guide lines used to structure content. The grid serves as an armature on which a designer can organize graphic elements (images, glyphs, paragraphs) in a rational, easy to absorb manner. A grid can be used to organize graphic elements in relation to a page, to other graphic elements on the page, or relation to other parts of the same graphic element or shape.
