BRANDBOOK

VISUAL IDENTITY STANDARDS FOR MOUNTAIN AREA HEALTH EDUCATION CENTER


INTRODUCTION

Our brand is more than a name or logo. It stands for the trust we earn from patients, partners, customers, and employees. This trust is an asset and should be managed properly.

We all must work together to build recognition and consistency for our brand as we continue to grow in our mission of serving the healthcare needs of Western North Carolina. It’s important that the brand maintains a consistent look and feel each and every time it’s seen. This requires strict dedication to standards. The guidelines in this brandbook will explain how our brand elements should be used.

At MAHEC, we have two interrelated but distinct brands: MAHEC and UNC Health Sciences at MAHEC. These brands are associated with specific functions here at MAHEC such as patient care (MAHEC) and research (UNC Health Sciences at MAHEC). Each brand is supported and communicated through a visual identity that includes our name, logo graphic, font style, and specific colors.

The guidelines in this brandbook will explain how the visual elements of each brand should be used.

Use of these visual identities is managed by MAHEC’s Marketing and Communications department. If you have questions about their use, please contact Michelle Morgan at (828) 257-4442 or michelle.morgan@mahec.net.


PROPER LOGO USAGE

Our logo is the touchstone of our brand and one of our most valuable assets. We must ensure proper usage. The preferred way to use the MAHEC and UNC Health Sciences at MAHEC logo is over a white or light colored background. Every attempt should be made to do this. If either logo must be placed on a dark background then the logo can be “knocked out” and used in white. Please observe ample clear space around the logo to maximize visual effectiveness and don’t allow other elements, including text, to intrude into this clear space. Having a clear zone protects the legibility of the logo. You should reproduce the logo only from authorized files obtained from Marketing and Communications.


IMPROPER LOGO USAGE The following examples demonstrate improper use of the logo. • Do not use a low resolution version of the logo. • Do not stretch or compress the logo disproportionately. • Do not re-create the type or substitute another typeface. • Do not place the logo on top of a color that clashes with the logo colors. • Do not make the logo transparent or faded.

TYPOGRAPHY

Typography is a key element to communicate a unified personality to our printed and electronic communications. The font that should be used whenever possible is Cabin. It is available on all MAHEC computers. The exception to using Cabin is your email signature. You should use Calibri for that as most computers on the receiving end of your emails will not have the Cabin font installed.

EMAIL SIGNATURES

An email signature is as important as any other part of our corporate identity. It adds a level of professionalism to email communications. Think of your email signature as a digital form of a business card; it needs to be well designed, conform to brand guidelines, and provide important contact information. It should promote our brand in a positive and professional way. Each employee should create their email signature in Outlook based on the guidelines below. No graphic elements other than the logo are allowed in signatures. Colored or animated backgrounds are not allowed. Quotes and sayings are not allowed. The links to Facebook and Twitter are optional.
