What we stand for


What we stand for

A vision for the future...

Driven by our mission... VEHO is a new direction and the new way of traveling through Germany. We want the people to get comfortable and relaxed to their destination in a reasonable time, therefor we connect the most important destinations in Germany, such as big cities, airports and events. We want to be recognized and loved as a company that cares about the needs of their travelers and the environment. We want our travelers to enjoy a better way of traveling , every time they choose to travel with us.

We want to improve our world and every time a person chooses to travel with us, that happens a little. Unfortunately we can not care about everything, but as a bus company we care about the needs of our travelers and the environment. For the people... The bus ride to vacations or a trip at the weekend should be something relaxing and fun, but there are many ways to get nerved and annoyed: traffic jams, missing parking space, navigating and finding the right way‌ There VEHO lends a hand and helps creating something memorable and unforgettable. By choosing to travel with our buses the travelers help to reduce the amount of cars on the streets, they don’t have to care and they can experience the comfort of our busses while doing whatever they like.

For the environment... When travelers choose to travel collectively between bigger cities they help reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the air. We want to work actively towards a better and cleaner environment. Regardless of how many passengers there are on board, the amount of emissions is constant. So we drive more people stress free from one place to another without polluting the environment. Our vision is that more and more people take the coach and think about the environment.

What we stand for

Values that shape our actions... Environment friendliness The nature is our most important resource in the world, that’s why we want to help to save it. Through collective traveling and the use of bio fuel we are doing our part. Comfort With our comfort, we want to bring little luxury and convenience in the traveling for everyone. Comfortable seats, enough space, air conditioning and nice surrounding make traveling unstressful and bring it to another level.

Friendliness Being friendly is the key to the heart of the people. We want our travelers to get the feeling they are traveling with friends. That’s how we treat them and how we want to be treated. Punctuality Being in time when traveling is pretty important, it reduces long waiting hours and stress through delay. Additionally our busses are timed with many other trains and flights.

Speed Our travelers should get to their destination in the fewest time as possible. Therefor we choose the short and thought-trough traveling trajects. Affordability We want to be as cheap as possible to make our bus rides affordable for a big extent of people. We don’t want to be selective by the price. And what is even more important, we want our prices to be fair in relation to the distance our travelers are passing.

Our logo


Our logo

Logo with tagline

Basic logo This is the basic logo. It’s used for most appliciations. The logo exists out of two main elements. The first is the ‘Veh’, these are the first 3 letters from the name of the company (Veho). ‘Veh’ is by the Philosopher font. We chose this for immediate recognition in our target group.

Logo without tagline

The second element is “O”, represented by 3 colored lines. These lines stand for the 3 different destinations (Airports, shopping centers and several events) our buses drive to. The difference in length expresses dynamism. The tagline has a fixed position: top, right.

City

Color variations The Veho logo family consists of 3 different color variations.The color variations are used for making an understanding between the 3 types of destinations. This makes it easier for travelers to recognize the right bus. The aubergine blue is used for the main logo and for the buses driving between big cities. The submarine yellow is used for buses driving to airports and the summer green could be found on buses with event destinations. In some cases, the logo can bu printed in only one color, this os for reducing the production costs for example for promotional materials. In these cases, the tagline is removed.

Logo black&white

Greyscale and black These logo should only be used if necessary. The colors make the logo more recognizable, so if possible the colored logo should be used. The black and white logo can only be used if there is no other option (no option for color or grayscale). For example for receipts that are printed with matrix printers, fax,...

Negative logos

Tone of voice


Tone of voice

Tone of voice VEHO needs to speak with one voice, so we all need to write in a smilier way. Here are some guiding principles to use when writing for and over VEHO:

Focus on the traveler

Tell how it is. Be true to the service and how people relate to it.

We talk to travelers about things that relate to them and their lives. As a result, it says so much about us: we listen, we care, we understand and we offer great service. We never talk about how great we are or boasting about ourselves.

We say: “We drive Stuttgart - Berlin for 39€ in 7h” We don’t say: “Stuttgart - Berlin in under 8 hours and for less than 50 €, if you book early enough.”

We say: “For the nature. For the people. For you.” We don’t say: “We are saving the environment while bringing you to your destination.”

Be honest

Keep it real Write words that feel the real way of traveling, every time. Delight in making the traveling different. Find inspiration and optimism in the needs of our travelers. We say: “Travel with us fast and affordable wherever you want and additionally you can do your part on saving the environment.” We don’t say: “Environment friendly traveling for low price”

23


Tone of voice

Never try too hard We’re easygoing and playful. We never shout or yell. We’re not flippant or dismissive nor overly jokey. We’re not smug either.

Tone of voice VEHO needs to speak with one voice, so we all need to write in a smilier way. Here are some guiding principles to use when writing for and over VEHO:

We say: “Emma (6) and Lotta (8) are happy, that their parents have time to read books with them while traveling instead of navigating and reading cards.” We don’t say: “Save time instead of exhausting driving and navigating”

Talk don’t tell Have a conversation with people. Speak one to one. Share ideas and thoughts. Don’t patronize or talk down. We say: “Welcome to your VEHO bus ride. We’re glad you have chosen to travel with us. Relax and enjoy our way together. “ We don’t say: “VEHO is the only way of traveling comfortable and relaxing. Try it!

Our primary typeface for professional publishing is Swiss. It will give our communication a friendly, human tone. It’s different to our logotype but works well alongside it. We use it for the tagline and advertising headlines. There are many styles available of Swiss, so it can be used in many different ways and situations.

Dear Mr. Name

Practical logo application It is important to show continuity in all published things for VEHO. That’s why we show some examples for the use of the logo in different surroundings. On office supplies, like envelopes, letters and business cards is always the main logo used. On the letter head are the stripes even used as a democratic element to separate the letterhead from the text. The business cards are available in all three main company colours, so it is easily recognizable in which department a person is working.
