“Color is one of the most important components in creating brand identity. The purpose of a brand identity system is to encode a brand in people’s memory and retrieve it from their memory. In a visual system, the two most powerful components are the consistent recognizable shapes and colors. Colors can actually have an affect on a person’s state of mind and cognitive ability as demonstrated by numerous research studies.“ – Derrick Daye, Author of Branding Strategy Insider

One of the key elements of building a strong brand is color selection. Every color has a different feel and various associations. By choosing a color or a combination of colors for your brand identity, you will take on those associations. Colors will evoke certain emotions and feelings towards your brand so it is vital to choose a color that will represent your identity effectively.

Typefaces > Authentic Attitude “Type is like music in having its own beauty, and in being beautiful as an accompaniment and interpretation; and typography can be used to express a state of the soul, like the other arts and crafts. Type appears at first to be a rigid medium; but like other rigid media, it is plastic to the living spirit of a craftsman.“ – J.H. Mason T Y P E FAC E S :

COPPERPLATE 2

(LEGACY)

ROADKILL (FEATURE)

Typeface: “Copperplate is a rather old-fashioned term for prints made by engravings and etchings in printmaking,” says Wikipedia. For the Tyler Village brand, we use the Copperplate typeface sparingly for logotype, occasional headlines and subheads, to maintain a connection to a storied past.

Typeface: OK, so the name doesn’t do this distressed display type justice. We’ve used this tall and narrow grungy typeface as a feature in a new wave of marketing materials, for its modern attitude and iconoclastic boldness. Use for headlines only.

Handwriting Dakota

[Spirit]

4

Meta Sans

[Workhorse]

Typeface: Dakota - Handwritten speaks to the friendly, eclectic, and creative community that is Tyler. In the Lookbook for example, Dakota delivers a down to earth message that’s slightly irreverent and all together real. Use for callouts, punch copy, captions, and quotes.

Typeface: According to its designer, Erik Spiekermann, Meta Sans was intended to be a “complete antithesis of Helvetica,” the latter which he found “boring and bland,” according to Wikipedia. For Tyler marketing materials, Meta is a highly flexible and timeless typeface for body, callouts, subheads, and more.
