Assessment

The goal of Lumina Academy of Dance is to create a fun environment where individuals can learn traditional dances from around the world and make friends in the process. The emphasis on community has positioned the dance studio along the lines of a non-profit organization which gives Lumina an edge on their competition since they are the only dance studio in Pasadena focusing on building a community of non-professional, non-performance oriented dancers.

Universal Message

Lumina Academy of Dance has a personal mission of creating communities of people who enjoy dancing and learning traditional dances from around the world.

Brand Strategy and Expression

The Lumina Academy of Dance brand should communicate elegance, fun and community. All of the assets of the brand have been created around these key ideas. Leveraging white space and bold, colorful imagery should be the goal of any marketing materials that are produced for the studio. At minimum, the following materials should always be available and visible at every Lumina Academy of Dance class and event. - Business Cards - Rack Cards (all six colors) - Lumina General Poster - Class Vouchers Although every instructor is encouraged to wear the official Lumina Academy of Dance tshirt to classes and events, it is optional and should be worn when appropriate.

Letterform

Keyline

The Lumina Academy logo is the primary visual source of

identification for the studio. In order to convey a consistent message and raise strong brand awareness the logo must never be redrawn or manipulated under any circumstances.

Academy of Dance

The Lumina Academy logo consists of three key elements; letterform, keyline and descriptor. The descriptor must always appear together with the other two elements, however the letterform can be displayed withouth the keyline or the descriptor.

Letterform Descriptor

The letter form is created from the name of the dance studio Lumina. The letterform can appear as a stand alone element without the keyline or descriptor.

Keyline

A thin vertical keyline that separates the letterforms and the descriptor.

Descriptor

The descriptor is set in Rotis Sans Serif 45 Light and defines Lumina as a dance studio. In instances where size is limited (i.e. corporate gift pen) the descriptor and keyline may be omitted. Any exception should be approved by Lumina Academy of Dance and Marty Romero: brandme@tinybrandsrock.com or (310) 400-2695 before use. The following pages of this Lumina Academy of Dance identity style guide outline the logo usage and application in order to maintain a high degree of consistency.

Italic versions of the font can also be used. All text should always be set in upper and lower case (camel case). All text should be left justified, wherever possible.

Logo Size & Isolation Area

Logo Size

Isolation Area

To ensure optimum definition of the identity in reproduction, it should not be reproduced smaller than the minimum size height which is 0.25”. Original artwork should always be used.

For maximum impact and instant recognition, the logo, letterform or descriptor should not be crowded by other visual elements. Adequate white space should be left on all sides so that its prominence is not compromised. This visual illustration is a guide for providing the necessary white space.

The area indicated around the logo is known as the isolation area. To ensure the clarity of Lumina Academy’s identity, this area should be kept free of any type, imagery or graphic elements. This area is based on the size of the dot in the “i” of the logo’s letterform at 1” height and is equal to 0.125in., 125mm, .75 pica, 0.125px. Notice that the isolation area above the dot in the “i” of the letterform is half the size.

The size of the identity is measured across the width of the symbol (as denoted by x) and its width is based on the height of the letterform (as denoted by y). The default height of the letterform is 1”. The width of the logo at this height is 8.75”. To maintain the integrity of the logo, the width should always be sized in relationship to the height.
