1 your new identity

Caliber has historically been seen as an SEO agency. Over the last decade SEO has evolved to increasingly overlap with other disciplines, to the point where it is ineffective to manage SEO in isolation from other marketing channels. Caliber has historically bolted these related disciplines as services on to its offering as the market and customer demands have shifted.

Today, we believe a broad understanding and integration of Content, Social & PR (alongside other skills) is required to achieve results in this corner of the marketing battle. We believe the most appropriate description of these services is “Organic Marketing”. As a business we aim to be leading Organic Marketing agency by combining best-in-class insight, technical and creative talent. We see this an an evolution of Caliber as an agency, not a revolution. Our brand identity has ‘evolved’ to reflect this.

1.2 smart organic marketing

‘Smart’ to us is common sense. It’s being well prepared by using the insight found in the data all around us and combining it with our years of experience. It’s about testing, learning and optimising. It’s being organised and thorough, but not getting stuck in process and stifling creativity, or missing an opportunity. It’s about being pragmatists and understanding limitations, about setting expectations and being honest.

We have built and are developing our agency around these principles because we have seen what happens when you get it wrong but more importantly what happens when you get it right. We know success is not always about big brands or big budgets. We do all this to help our clients grow their business and their brands, just like we do for ourselves and we don’t just talk about being smart, we apply it to everything we do.

1.5 resizing the logo

The company logo is an important and valued graphic element and must be used consistently and appropriately. Even minor variations will undermine and compromise the image of the branding. Always use master artwork when reproducing any logo design internally or externally. The logo should never be recreated under any circumstances. When reproducing any logo elements, only the original high resolution or vector graphic files should be used – logos should not be taken from this document. If you need to adjust the size of the logo to fit in a restricted space, the scale of the logo (not the dimensions) must be adjusted to fit. The easiest way to resize the logo and maintain the correct proportions is to drag the double arrow at the corners to the required size. Never adjust the height or width of the image independently .

Wrong Important elements within the logo have been distorted, enlarged or shrunk from its designed aspect ratio, affecting the balance and design. Adjusting the width or height of the logo image separately will alter its proportions. The logo will become distorted causing stretching or squishing of the shape and text. Correct This enlarged logo’s shape is consistent with the initial design. The correct proportions have been maintained, retaining balance and legibility.

1.6 external use of logo

If our logo is to be used by another organisation (e.g. in a magazine, brochure, advertisement, banner) insist that they use our master artwork when reproducing any logo design. The following conditions must be observed: __ Under no circumstances should anyone attempt to recreate the lettering or adjust the alignment of the lettering __ The relationship between the name and the symbol in the logo is fixed and should never be manipulated or adjusted __ Only specified brand colours can be used when reproducing the logo externally

Also ensure you are using the correct artwork for the application. A consistent layout is essential across all media – changing key elements of the logo will introduce confusion into the brand. When the logo is being reproduced externally proofs must be submitted to Caliber’s marketing department for approval and signing off before printing goes ahead.

2 typeface

When used correctly, typography can convey image and feeling every bit as much — and sometimes more — than simple graphics. We’ve selected a type family that gives Caliber a friendly, warm, and real voice: Museo Sans. Museo Sans is our primary typeface, should be used in all communication materials, use type size and weight to establish a clear hierarchy of information, do not substitute any other typeface for Museo Sans.

colour mood

3 our primary color palette

Consistent use of color is one of the easiest — and most effective — ways to break through marketing clutter. To rise above the noise. To be a visible needle in a haystack of competing communications. Why grey? It’s the mature color of the spectrum and suggests safety, dignity, professionality, solidity and eleganty. Blue also communicates image attributes like calming, reserved, formal, and trustworthy. Certain shades of grey can suggest different but complementary and appealing traits. Darker grey? Tradition and quality. Brighter grey? Innovation or technology. Gray is controlled. It has a steadying effect on other colors with which it comes into contact, toning down the stronger and brighter colors and illuminating the softer colors (green, pink, blue).
