Our brand tone and personality. This is us and this is how we speak.

We are lively, yet calm. We are friendly and hospitable. We are approachable. We can be fun. We are optimistic and we stand strong on our philosophy and values. We like telling stories. Although we are very well aware of the reality, we are idealists and we believe we can do the impossible with everyone’s help. We believe in individuality and we believe in the power of the collective. Our brand personality is expressed through our tone of voice. The way our clients interpret the brand is reinforced in everything we do and say. We are committed to making it easy for our audiences to understand us, avoiding any jargon and ambiguous terms that may lead to confusion. In line with our brand personality, whatever we say must be said in the simplest way possible, but not diluting the impact of our words. We speak as if we have smiles on our faces. We talk conversationally and we create an emotional connection with the audience.

Our logo is what represents us best. It is best to know our logo and how it should be presented.

Badian is a place where people can unwind and satisfy their travel needs. Badian connects with the market and so there is a need for the brand to do the same in every way possible. There are three core values that make up Badian’s brand - personal, refreshing, and natural. A custom brush font was used to show its warmth and its personal connection with the travellers. The font type, unlike the usual fonts, is full of imperfections. It is noticeable that the two a’s are different from each other; the letters are also not aligned. This gives the identity a more natural, organic, and refreshing feel to it. Lastly, a yellow-green hue is used for the brand’s main color. The colours and the font choice work together to represent the whole of Badian well.

Our slogan represents us verbally and visually. Hence, there is a need for us to list some guidelines on how to use our slogan. The slogan is not a headline and should not serve as one. On advertising materials, the slogan must always be used with the logo, this should be placed on the left side or on top of the primary or official logo.

Our Primary Slogan

Our Multiline Slogan

This is how the slogan should be written like, unless legibility prohibits it. When placed on the left side of any logo, height must be half the height of the primary logo. When placed on top, height must be exactly 1.5 times taller than a quarter of the height of the primary logo.

This version of the slogan should be used only when needed. This should only be used on promotional materials that contain no headline or copy or when the primary slogan would not fit or would be too small to be legible. An example would be on the wide skyscraper online ad.

Our photography. To match our personality, we have one rule for photography, keep it simple.

On advertising materials, always choose photography that has a story to tell. The photos should show people, tourists or locals, interacting with or in nature. Capture real people on natural moments in everyday scenes, and not posed people. Avoid any visual clutter in the images and bad crops. Be conscious of composition and whether or not the photo tells a story or evokes any kind of emotion. On other communication tools, the use of photography showing sceneries and landscapes can be used. Photos should be captured in Badian. And remember to always keep it simple.

Technical Guidelines

* * * * * 26

Capture with natural light. Always capture in high resolution. Take your shots in full-color. We want the photos to represent life and the best way to represent that is through color. Photos can be post-processed, but do not over-process. Our photos have a warm tone. We want the photos to look vivid and remain true in itself.
