Aer Lingus Brand Identity System Guidelines Introduction

Brand identity system guidelines A consistent and coordinated brand identity is the key to developing a strong, well-recognised and sustainable brand. This manual contains the visual guidelines for our Aer Lingus brand identity. These guidelines will help you implement our brand identity consistently across its many applications. They explain and record the various elements within the Aer Lingus brand identity system and show useful examples. Use these guidelines as a reference for the Aer Lingus brand identity system and follow them faithfully whenever you are creating or commissioning a branded item. If you have any questions regarding these guidelines, contact the Marketing Department.

Aer Lingus Brand Identity System Guidelines Introduction

Brand architecture Our Aer Lingus brand will always be the primary brand. Our sub-brands have been devised for specific service needs. All other products and services are identified without unique brand marks. Our brand architecture organises our businesses in a way that: • defines our key offerings, and • communicates the breadth and depth of Aer Lingus to our many audiences.

Aer Lingus brand mark Our brand mark is our signature, it is our unique identifier and should be used consistently and with consideration.

‘Brand mark’ is the precise term we use to describe the combined form of our logotype and shamrock symbol as they appear in a defined relationship. Our logotype and shamrock symbol have been specially drawn and outlined in artwork. Quality In order to preserve the quality of our brand mark, it must always be reproduced from digital master artwork supplied by the Marketing Department. Duplicating our brand mark by any other means will lead to an unacceptable deterioration in artwork quality.

Clearance zone To ensure that nothing interferes with our brand mark’s visibility in printed applications, we have created a protective clearance zone to set off our brand mark from type, photographs and illustrations. The rectangle shown below represents the minimum clearance zone for our brand mark. Minimum size Do not reproduce our brand mark at sizes less than 20mm wide.

Aer Lingus stacked brand mark Our stacked brand mark should be used only in situations where space restrictions will result in poor visual impact for the primary version.

Clearance zone To ensure that nothing interferes with our stacked brand mark’s visibility in printed applications, we have created a protective clearance zone to set off our brand mark from type, photographs and illustrations. The rectangle shown below represents the minimum clearance zone for our brand mark.

Using the shamrock symbol The shamrock symbol may only be used on its own on certain defined applications: in main base airports; within the aircraft environment, and on the aircraft tail-fin. Each application must be approved by the Marketing Department.

Minimum size Do not reproduce the stacked brand mark at sizes less than 10mm wide.

Our brand mark – master artworks The complete suite of master digital artworks for our brand mark is available from the Marketing Department. These brand mark files may not be used without the express permission of Aer Lingus. File formats For high-end print applications, we have created vector master artwork files in Adobe Illustrator CS2. These are available in both ai and eps file formats. For in-house use, we have created Windows-compatible bitmap master artwork files in Adobe Illustrator CS2

and Adobe Photoshop CS2. These are available in two file formats for particular uses: tiff files for output to colour laser printers and jpeg files for on-screen use. Note for Microsoft Word users Word is unable to open eps and ai format files. To place eps files onto your Word documents you need to use the Insert – Picture – From File... command. Colour versions These artworks have been created to print our brand marks in spot Pantone colours and using the four-colour process.

Typeface for use in-house The Arial typeface family is the preferred typeface for communications generated in-house when Neue Frutiger is not available. Arial is supplied with most common Microsoft applications and is available on the majority of PCs.

It is the preferred typeface for use in letters, memos, presentations and other material generated in-house. This typeface family has the minimum number of weights and styles, making it easy to use in standard applications.

Arial should not be used in any of our marketing material, such as brochures and advertising. It should not be used on any branded material, such as signage or advertising.

Aer Lingus Business Class Aer Lingus Business Class offers customers elevated standards and benefits when travelling to the United States and on certain other longhaul flights. A unique silver logotype has been developed for Business Class. The Business Class sub-brand mark should be reversed out of the Aer Lingus Dark Green background in the majority of applications. A positive version on a white background may be used in select applications.

We have devised the relationship between the Business Class logotype and the Aer Lingus brand mark which communicates that Business Class is a service from Aer Lingus. The Aer Lingus brand mark is positioned in an endorsing role to Business Class â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a more understated approach. Using the Business Class subbrand mark The Business Class sub-brand mark should be used on all applications outside of the aircraft, for example at check-in desks and airport signage. A silver shamrock symbol may only be used within the Business Class cabin,

applied to select items such as the fine bone china, glassware, head-rests etc. Quality In order to preserve the quality of the Business Class sub-brand mark, it must always be reproduced from digital master artwork supplied by the Marketing Department. Duplicating the Business Class sub-brand mark by any other means will lead to an unacceptable deterioration in artwork quality. Minimum size Do not reproduce the Business Class sub-brand mark at sizes less than 25mm wide.

Airport terminal signs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fascia panels Panels should be produced in either 050 opal acrylic material, or an equivalent opal polycarbonate where additional panel strength is required especially in exposed areas. Translucent white vinyl material to be digitally printed matching Aer Lingus Dark Green when viewed in daylight (and non-illuminated). This material should be face applied to the panel. The text and shamrock symbol should then be

computer-cut and weeded out on this material to show the opal white sign panel. The shamrock symbol is printed Shamrock Green on translucent white vinyl and in-laid showing the minimum of an overlap. To prevent colour fade, digitally printed material should be satin laminated, this laminate also adds protection where signs are positioned at a low level. Digitally printed flexible PVC should also be tested in a similar fashion.

There can be a wide variation in how back-illumination affects colours. Test prints on various materials should always be approved with a light box prior to full production. This will also ensure that the corporate green colours (once backilluminated by either fluorescent lamps or LED) are consistent with daylight colours, when non-illuminated.

Ticket Sales and Reservations Text should be centred between the Aer Lingus brand marks. For restricted space, use the measurement of two shamrock symbols between the brand mark and sign text.

Customer service signs Customer service signs are used throughout the airport to manage passenger flow. Due to the changeable nature of the information, these signs are usually portable.

These signs give flexibility to staff and communicate specific customer services to passengers. The signs are printed and inserted into holding frames which are then mounted on the Aer Lingus customer queue poles. The brand mark is displayed at the top of the sign. The customer service information is left aligned and centred horizontally within the available space. The text must be typeset in Neue Frutiger Regular and be applied using the margins shown.

Customer queue systems The pole uprights, weighted base covers and sign frames should all be finished in a tough polyester coated semi-gloss finish matching Aer Lingus Dark Green. The sign frame should double-sided and impact-resistant polycarbonate with an anti-glare surface for greater visibility. All retractable belts should also match Aer Lingus Dark Green.

• Eco-friendly office furniture: source furniture with the highest environmental ratings. • Energy-efficient lighting: including LED and compact fluorescent technology. • Sustainable mechanical systems: more environmentally-friendly systems will reduce running and maintenance costs.

An accent green colour will have limited use, predominantly on accent walls. It is paired with Black American walnut doors and frames to act as the stronger elements, set against off-white walls, white ceilings and off-white desktops.

• Embodied energy: this is the amount of energy required to put materials in place and dispose of them for their entire lifetime including raw material extraction, transport, manufacture, assembly, installation, disassembly, deconstruction and/or decomposition.

Applying the brand mark to office receptions When applying the brand mark to a reception area, it is important that the materials chosen are sympathetic to the surrounding environment.

The structure of the brand mark should adhere to these guidelines and match all brand colours as specified. All branding of office receptions must submitted to the Marketing Department prior to application.

Aer Lingus brand identity system guidelines Section six: buildings and interiors

Applying the brand mark to customer service desks Our customer service desks are found throughout all airports we operate in. They vary greatly from one airport to another and are often dictated by the specific airport authority.

We often do not have control over how our customer service desks are presented. In those that we do have control over, the branding should be conservative, ensuring it fits with our brand positioning. Depending on the construction of the desk themselves, they may be branded with the brand mark or the shamrock symbol, however only when the brand mark appears in its entirety elsewhere.

Customer Service

Digital monitors also offer an opportunity to display the brand mark and customer service title. The materials for application of the branding should be carefully considered and must adhere to these guidelines, matching all brand colours as specified. All branding of office receptions must submitted to the Marketing Department prior to application.

PowerPoint presentation guide Our new PowerPoint template and guide can be found in the ‘My Templates’ folder.

A short guide to creating effective presentations September 2011

Aer Lingus presentations

Presentation font

Our customers expect an efficient and professional service.

• The font used throughout this template is Arial

The way in which we communicate to our customers is an expression

• It has the minimum number of weights and styles, making it easy to use

of our brand and how they perceive us.

The essence of a strong brand is consistently good delivery. The message should be clear, there should be a beginning, middle and an end.

• Contact your IT manager if you do not have Arial installed on your computer • Do not use any other font in our presentations

This PowerPoint guide will help you to create impactful, consistent presentations.

Be clear about your message

What to avoid

Remember PowerPoint is a speaker guide, not a script.

• Too much information on one slide

• Discuss one major topic per slide

• Highlighting everything and having no clear hierarchy

• Use no more than five bullets per slide

• Using too many colours

• Keep bullets to a single line of text, where possible

• Using all-capitals in text, use bold for emphasis instead

• Create emphasis by using bold type, but use it sparingly

• Text which is too small to be read legibly on-screen

Accessing colours

Colours to be used for presentation elements

• The custom Aer Lingus colours have been saved within this presentation,

• These colours should always be used in tables and charts

Aer Lingus presentation colours

these are the seven colours that appear in a row in the colour dialogue box
