With world class burgers and beer, the next logical step was bourbon. The West Hartford store (the first store) opened in 2006, the response was greater than anyone could imagine. The fans were fiercely loyal and the place was an instant success. Simsbury opened the

“In a world where beef is often mass produced, chemically processed, prepackaged, and frozen, our hamburgers are made from fresh, never frozen, Certified Humane Natural Angus Beef. We only grind whole chucks to our strict specifications daily. This way we have total control over the quality and freshness of every burger, and that’s the way it should be.” — Al Gamble, Owner, CEO P L A N B B U R G E R B A R ST Y L E G U ID E

The Signature The following graphic system for the Plan B Burger Bar Signature is a structure for communicating and presenting our brand logically, clearly and with distinction. The focal point of the Signature is the logo. The secondary element is our logotype. Letter form

The logo (right) is comprised of two unique hand drawn forms. The outer letter form that creates the “b,” and inner form, the illustration of our majestic bull. The logo has been designed with the intention of being strong enough to communicate our unique brand identity without the need for additional text or design elements.

Illustration

The Logotype (right) has been designed to communicate our brand legibly without detracting or competing with the logo. The proportion and form of the logotype helps support and compliment the logo. The placement of the “B” and the emphasis created by our corporate color

reinforces our identity. The Tagline (above) is based on the typeface Chopin and has been redrawn for our current signature. The flowing letter forms best communicate our mantra, “Good Booze. Great Burgers.” The style was retained from our previous identity based on its strong brand recognition.

In order for our new identity to communicate effectively, our mission and personality needed synthesize with every visual element. The following detailed descriptions our signature elements explains how each functions to support and communicate our brand.

We are definitely, “the best alternative.” The lowercase “b” was selected for its casual (approachable) and secondary nature, yet the design is bold and strong. We are “Certified Humane.” Our bull illustration supports ours respect for nature and dedication to humane practices which make us leaders in our industry. The overall quality of design best represents our dedication for delivering the highest quality of services, products and experience to our customers. Our logo type was designed with intent and for best possible readability. The function of our logotype is to help communicate our personality. We are a bold and modern, yet we have a strong connection and respect for our past. We hope that the texture of our logotype when combined, the logo and tagline reflect our passion for the culture of both the old world and Americana.

Our tagline style adds energy, sophistication and class to our overall signature. This is our original tagline style. It has been kept because it completes our signature. The script design has been successfully branded since our inception and will continue to provide our customers with a design element that the they already identify with our image.

Usage Guidelines How we use our Signature is crucial in keeping its visual meaning and identity intact. While we can alter certain aspects of the Signature without losing impact and recognition, these options are limited. The following guidelines should always be your first option.

Clear Zone When the signature is used, it should be sufficiently isolated from illustrations or other words or images that might detract from the signature’s importance. The logo must be at least one “B” height away from illustrations, photographs, rules, page edges, or other type.

Reproduction Size The signature should not be used so small that the readability or reproduction quality is compromised. A solid positive signature or reverse signature should be no smaller than 5/8” wide. See example below. Make sure the line screen is 133 or finer. If you want to use a coarser screen, make sure the signature is no smaller than 3/4” wide. If a logo smaller than 5/8” is required, it must be approved by the Plan Burger Bar Style police.

Preferred (Primary) Usage The preferred use of the signature is Plan B red and Black on a white or light background. This application of the logo should always be considered as the first design option.

Reverse Signatures When the need arises to use the logo in reversed format, special attention must be given to the logo size and background in order to ensure readability. Using a 100% Black background will always provide adequate clarity and contrast.

Unusual Circumstances If the design absolutely does not allow for either the Primary Logo or the Primary Reverse to be used, these alternate choices may be used.

Overprinting When overprinting the signature on a solid color paper stock, the background color or image will come through the open (usually white) areas. This method of printing is acceptable only when printing on a paper stock that is light enough to provide sufficient contrast for clarity and legibility.

Overprinting Photographs/Textures When overprinting a photograph ensure that the open area of the illustrated bull does not contain any artifact that will compromise the clarity and integrity of the logo. Also ensure that there are not multiple images or textures showing through the open space.

The Tagline Tagline When using the tagline in advertising and promotional materials, display it prominently. The “preferred” placement of the tagline is on one line. The tagline type design is one complete form including the periods. The artwork should never be retyped.

Preferred treatment:

Secondary treatment: stationary & corporate communications (7-10% Black)

Optional treatments There will be situations when in order to ensure readability, the tagline will need to be broken and displayed as two unique elements, “Good Booze.” and “Great Burgers.” When choosing this option, the two elements should never be displayed directly on top of each other. They should be positioned strategically apart from one another to provide adequate balance. For examples of optional treatments, visit planbburgerbar.com/styleguide.

Design Elements Looking for a creative approach to solve your design dilemma? We encourage the use of design elements inspired by shapes within our logo to enhance the overall presentation. Design elements can easily be created from our logo by following the a few simple guidelines. Elements should use about 10-25% of logo line segments and can be filled with flat color, images or textures. Never create an illustration using the complete logo design, screens or portions of logo elements. Design elements should not be presented as an exact duplication of the logo.

Illustration examples: Spur-style element based on Plan B logo design

Horn curve design element, based on logo design
