IDENTITY Pelta’s principal business activities are the development, marketing, and distribution of athletic-branded performance apparel, footwear, and accessories for men, women, and children. Their mission is to make all athletes better t h r o u g h passion, science and the relentless pursuit of innovation. Pelta’s identity communicates a strong correlation between superior athletic performance and superior athletic attire. The brand conveys the mentality of power, protection, and strength while simultaneously expressing agility and finesse to compel people to be active and compete.

SIGNATURE The Pelta signature consists of three components that combine to create the primary identity for Pelta. The signature consists of the brandmark, l o g o t y p e , a n d t a g l i n e . T h e s e c o m p o n e n t s a re capable of being broken up to stand alone and rearranged in the specific ways. To ensure the consistency necessary to build a recognizable identity, it is crucial to reproduce the logo only using the artwork supplied with the specific guidelines. The signature must also appear clearly and in the specified colors.

CONSTRUCTION The resizing of the Pelta signature must be precisely calculated in order to preserve the i n t e n d e d e x e c u t i o n a n d i d e n t i t y. I n o r d e r t o resize properly, the signature must increase or decrease linearly, so each component is directly proportionate to the other. The example to the left shows how each element and space between the elements interact in order to calculate the proper d i m e n s i o n . T h e t o t a l a re a ( w i d t h m u l t i p l i e d by height) of the signature must first be calculated. Then each element’s area within the signature must be calculated. Each area within the signature undertakes a specific proportional role. The signature must be scaled linearly in order to maintain accuracy.

CLEARSPACE Pelta’s signature should be kept clear of competing text, images, and graphics to ensure its integrity a n d v i s i b i l i t y. I n o r d e r t o e l i m i n a t e d i s t r a c t i n g elements, the signature must be surrounded by an adequate amount of clearspace. The clearspace should be equal to the size of the cap height in the signature shown in the example on the right.

COLOR The coloration of the Pelta signature and the alternates is an essential element established to create a recognizable tone and look for the brand. Consistency of color in application enhances the strength of the Pelta identity. The primary colors used in the signature and alternates consist of red-orange and warm grey.

ALTERNATES There may be certain applications in which the principal colors are unable to be utilized. In these circumstances, the Pelta signature and alternates can be black, silver or reversed to white. Although they will mostly be seen in black, silver, or white, the signature and alternates can also be viewed in a variety of colors. In these situations, the color of the logo must contrast the background to prevent the loss of visibility and integrity.

34


BACKGROUNDS The Pelta logo can be placed on white, black, and silver backgrounds, along with backgrounds in a variety of colors. The variety of background colors would be most commonly applied on Pelta merchandise. The demonstrations on the right show which colors look best on dark backgrounds and which work better on light backgrounds. It is important to make selections based on strong contrast in order to maintain visibility and legibility.

PHOTOGRAPHY The Pelta signature and alternates are only permitted be used in black and white when placed on a photographic background. The variation of photography alters which color version should be placed on the image. It is important to maintain the signature and alternates visibility by choosing a color with strong contrast to the background. They should also be placed in an area of the photograph with the least amount of chaos and noise. The demonstration to the right shows which version of the signature should be placed on dark background and which sits better on light backgrounds.

TYPOGRAPHY Pelta typography consists of one typeface, Forza f ro m t h e H o ef l e r & Fre re -J o n e s Fo u n d r y. Fo rza ’s large family of varying weights allows it to function as header along with text. The variety of weights will also provide unity and variety in application. It is crucial to stay committed to this typeface in order to create a consistent and strong identity.
