Brand Guidelines


Mission statement Iridescent Waters aim to change the dredging industry to a more ecologically aware process and we lead by example. We find sustainable ways to use the bi product of our indistry so that our waste in landfill is as little as possible and the majority of our product is used arond the country in artificial beaches and in agriculture. Through collaboration with local councils and projects run throughout the south east we deliver the best service and an ecological solution.


Logo The logo has been chosen to represent a ray of sun bouncing off clear, clean water. The logo should always be appropriate for the material it is being used on, but should not be any smaller than the sizes stated. Given the limited space online and in emails the minimum size does not apply, however we are aware that the smaller the logo, the smaller the impact it has. Do not stretch or warp the logo in any way.

No smaller than 50mm x 20mm

No smaller than 40mm x 50mm


Colour Variations The logo should only be re created in only these colours deoending on what the background surface and colour are. No other variations or colours are to be used on this logo and no tints or opacity is to be used.


Logo Spacing The logo should never be placed any less than 10mm away from an edge of a page or screen. If the logo is placed too close to the edge it can lose its impact and the brand is lost,
