BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012 BRAND ESSENCE

Does the world need another gym food brand? It is an interesting question, and it has only one answer. No. There enough brands creating protein bars, healthy wraps and food replacement shakes. But we don’t just produce food. We need to stand out, be different and offer the consumer a genuine choice. A better product, yes, for sure. A better experience, definitely. We offer a new life style. Our products make the consumer’s lives easier and better.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012 TARGET AUDIENCE

What do we offer? Perspective offers people the chance to look modern and stylish while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We portray the man as a whole, in all aspects of his life. He is an athlete, but he also has an important job, and needs to look smart and sophisticated both at work and during leisure time.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012 BRAND ATTRIBUTES

Brand Values We also established a set of values that are distinctively Perspective, which reflect our strengths and future ambitions. ‘SIMPLICITY’ - We strive to ease and simplify the your life while satisfying your needs. ‘PERFECTION’ - It is possible. We want to fit perfectly in your life, and make it better. ‘SMART’ - Our products are designed around insight into your needs, spoken and not. ‘AMBITOUS’ - We look ahead (towards the future) to find innovative ways to improve our services/products and thus your life.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

A new way to look at food. A new way to look at well-being. A new way to look at the world.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

A new way to look at... food...

well-being...

We present food from a new perspective. The food is healthy, but all gym food is healthy. Our food tastes magnificent, but that is not enough. We believe that food must look stunning too!

Today’s life style does not promote well-being. One has to make an effort to include physical exercise in his daily routine. But still that is not enough. It has to be supported by healthy food. Eating healthy leads to well-being.

the world... There is a vast difference when you look at the world while maintaining a healthy lifesstyle. Just look at it from Perspective’s point of view and see a new side of life.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012 TONE OF VOICE

How do we communicate? What is Tone of Voice?

Our Tone of Voice style

Tone of voice means how we say what we say. The words we use send signals about us – they show our audience what we represent as a brand and helps them to understand what we stand for. The way we talk as a brand is as important as the way we look.

DETERMINED, CONFIDENT and SINCERE

Why is it important? The words we use reflect our personality, so the more consistently we use them the more coherent our brand will be. How we use Words Our tone of voice stems directly from our positioning and our values – they help guide us in what we write.

We have a sense of self belief; we are direct and accurate in what we say but we always display a sense of modesty. We don’t need to use excessive exclamations or gushing descriptions. We are straightforward and authentic. We don’t use complicated jargon and abbreviations that no one understands. We give clear and decisive directions with what we describe, we are respectful of others – we try not to assume.

WE ARE NOT Intimidating, Arrogant, Complicated and Cold

Logo - Variants ColdBlack on a White background

White on a ColdBlack background In essence we have two logo variants. They are used depending on the colour of the background they are paced on. We have outlined in the following pages when and how to use the logo.

This is our main logo, and it is to be used on all our products, official merchandise and communication. Only this version of the logo can be used by those who do not make up our company.

This version of our logo is created to be used when a white background is not effective to maximise the impact of our logo.It is mainly to be used on digital forms of media. It is not be used by any others than official representatives of PERSPECTIVE.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

Logo - Black and White Variants Black on White

White on Black

When it is not possible to reproduce our logo in full quality colour, we have the one colour versions; Black placed on a White background, and White placed on a black background. We really like our full coloured logo, and it helps us to build a recognisable brand.

This logo will be used in cheap printing, where a good colour quality cannot be reached such as in letterheads.

Where our ColdBlack colour cannot be used, such as when printing on cardboard, this White on Black version should be used.

We only use one colour versions in exceptional circumstances, such as when colour print options limitations are in place.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

Logo - Application and Website Variant Grey on a White background This logo is to be used only on the mobile application and websiet only It was created because the colour has a very nice contrast with the white screen bacground, and complements nicely the texture used for the digital applications. It is not to be used on any other merchandise or print.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

Logo - Negative Spacing Our logo is mainly made up of negative space. The black area around the rest of the logo is defined by the height X of the logotype, i.e. the height of the letter ‘E’. X length above the symbol/mark, and below the logotype. Twice the X lenth on each sides of the logotype. The distance between the symbol/mark and the logotype should be of half X, i.e. ‘1/2 of the letter E’ The size of the logotype should be exactly as shown, i.e. formed by the lines extruded from the symbol. These rules apply to all variants of the logo.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

Logo - FOR MAN The strap line FOR MAN marks the separation from the Parent-brand and the other Sub-brand. The distance between the strap line and the logotype should be of a quarter of X, i.e. ‘1/4 of the letter E’ The height of the strap line should also be a quarter of X. The width of the box preceding the strap line should be the width of the letter ‘O’ of the word ‘FOR’. The strap line together with the box should be positioned in line with the letters ‘I’ and ‘E’ of the logotype.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

Logo - Exclusion Area We’ve defined an exclusion zone that stops other graphic elements interfering with the Perspective logo. The previous rules are applied similarly for the ColdBlack on White logo. The height X of the logotype marks the minimum area of clear space surrounding the logo. This area of separation is a minimum and should be increased uniformly whenever possible.

Minimum Size The logotype should never be too small to read. We’ve set a minimum size of 30mm.

30mm


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

Logo - Positioning Here are the details on how to place the logo on applications. The exclusion zone rules should always be followed when positioning the PERSPECTIVE logo around the edges of a page or when you are combining it with other graphic elements. For print and advertising applications the logo can sit on either top or bottom right hand side. For the mobile application, the logo should be positioned on the bottom right side. For the website, the logo should always be positioned top left.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

Our tag line should never be altered. Although one of the three sentences can be written on its own, words should never be added or removed. The tag line can not be written in any colour. It should always have the same colour as that of the logotype. If the logo is not present on the same page, the tag line should be written in any of the colours shown in our colour palatte, using the one with higher contrast to the background it is being written on. eg. ‘White on a Black background’

BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

Imagery Style and Tone Photography is a key part of our brand since they make strong impressions on our audiences. Our images should be thought-provoking and inspiring. They should demonstrate a the essence and attributes of our company, not just displaying our products. We want to show a unique, unexpected and surprising angle of the world around us, as the brand name states.


BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES 2012

Photography Photographic Checklist Is the image dramatic and inspirational? Is the image thought-provoking? Has photographic excellence been achieved? e.g. good colour contrast, engaging subject matter, interesting use of light and a strong composition? Is the image clean and simple with a clear focal point? i.e. not busy, cluttered and complicated?

As a general rule, to achieve more of the effect that our brand wants to portray, most of our photography is shown in GRAYSCALE, BLACK AND WHITE or in a highly DESATURATED mode.

We have divided our photography library into 3 main sections: PRODUCTS, DETAIL and PEOPLE.

Products Simple but interesting photos of our products, showing the design detail in an honest and real way.

Detail Close ups on typical objects, materials which portray the lives of our target audience.

People Shots from the everyday life our customers.
