Our custom stores are designed to invite people in and prepare them for their reading adventure.

WHY DO WE HAVE BRAND STANDARDS?

We love our identity and we want people to love our identity too. In order to be loved we must first build and keep our integrity. Our brand identifies our company and all that we stand for. Our brand must embody consistency. Our brand standards ensure that the integrity of our brand will remain consistent in all situations. Questions regarding our brand standards should be directed by email to the Anthology Corporate Office at marketing@anthology.com

With plentiful seating areas, cozy in-store cafĂŠs, and rentable meeting or study rooms our stores offer plenty of opportunity for customers to enjoy our products.

Our vision is simple, to provide our customers with quality products in a quality atmosphere. We strive to ensure excellence in all that we do. Anthology should be a destination, not simply a place to pass through. From providing customers with comfortable furniture to arranging our products in engaging displays we do all we can to ensure that our customers feel welcome in our stores.

Our values guide everything we do. They direct our business, the way we treat our customers, and even the products we carry. Our values consist of: Integrity Quality Sincerity Passion Leadership

WHERE OUR BRAND CAME FROM

A Our brandmark was inspired by the idea of a passage. Books take readers on a passage to different times and places. Our tagline itself is “Discover your passage� and we wanted that to be reflected in our brandmark. After searching several ideas of visual representations of the idea of a passage the image of a key hole was settled on. This image was combined with the letterform of a serif A. A serif letterform was chosen to represent the typefaces that are typically used in book publishing. The end result was a bold brandmark that is memorable and can stand up to the test of time.

LOGO USAGE – DON'TS

Stacked Logo Misuse It is important that Anthology’s logo remains a consistent mark at all times. The following examples are what NOT to do with the logo. Designers are expected to keep the logotype consistent in their designs. The stacked logotype should not be stretched, dissected, altered, or changed in any way. The incorrect variations at the left demonstrate how NOT to use the logo.

16


Horizontal Logo Misuse It is important that Anthology’s logo is a consistent mark at all times. The following examples are what NOT to do with the logo. Designers are expected to keep the logotype consistent. Refer to the contact page if any questions should arise about usage and/or placement of the horizontal logo including the tagline. The horizontal logotype and logotype with tagline should not be stretched, dissected, altered, or changed in any way. The incorrect variations at the left demonstrate how NOT to use the logo.

17


LOGO USAGE – DON'TS

Background Misuse It is important that Anthology’s logo is a consistent mark at all times. The following examples are what NOT to do with the logo when placing the logo on a variety of materials, images, and/or backgrounds. Designers are expected to keep the logotype consistent. The logotype should not be placed upon a background that has similar tonal values and/or color of that particular logo. If the logo is similar in tone to the background and/or if the logo is placed upon a busy, heavily contrasted background, the logo will not be legible and therefore, will not be successful. Review the misused variations, shown at left, for examples of how not to use the various logotypes on busy backgrounds and/or incorrect color combinations.
