SIGNATURE The Outreach International signature is the heart of our identity. It is our initial connection to our supporters, and it is important that we use it correctly everywhere it appears. The signature has two components: the OI Brandmark, represented as the orange symbol of a person; and the OI Logotype, represented as the “Outreach International� wording.

These two components are carefully-drawn artwork that should never be redrawn or altered. There are two configurations of the signature: stacked and horizontal. The stacked configuration is preferred. But the horizontal configuration is OK to use when there is not enough space for the stacked configuration.

CLEAR SPACE By leaving ample space around the signature, we make sure it stands out. The amount of space needed is measured by the height and width of the ‘O’ in the Logotype, as shown in the exhibit below. The minimum clear space must always allow for one ‘O’ on each of the four sides of the signature. When possible, increase this amount of space to give the signature even more visibility. The same rules apply to all configurations and variations of the signature.

SIGNATURE COLORS AND USAGE To increase flexibility, we’ve developed a suite of signatures to meet graphic needs. But our OI Brandmark wants to add a little color to the world, so use the full color signature whenever possible.

We trust you. Just use your best judgment when it comes to pairing photos with a signature color. And that goes for all formats of the signature and/or brandmark.

Sometimes, when printing or reproducing the signature, you may have to use one of the one-color variations. And that’s OK. Even though we want you to use the gradient signature when you can, legibility is the top priority.

Legibility should be good, and the signature should be placed on a background with little “visual noise.”

When using a one-color variation, the 60% black signature is preferred. Don’t even think about using a 100% black version. Just kidding. But seriously, don’t do it.

BRANDMARK USAGE Here’s the thing: Sometimes our brandmark wants a little space. So after 34 years of proving itself, we decided it was finally ready to stand alone as a visual element broken off from the main signature. Never use the logotype by itself. But if you want to use the brandmark by itself, that’s OK with us.

URLS / LINES OF TEXT / SILO-BRANDS When it’s appropriate, you can use the brandmark in tandem with a URL or a line of text. But make sure you always place the brandmark at the end. The maximum size for the brandmark is to be “one head” taller than the height of the typeface. We like to see our brandmark looking bold, too, but let’s not inflate its ego. It’s been acting really self-important since the rebranding effort began.

When it comes to silo-brands, like Advent Stable, Partnership Programs or Legacy Circle, the preferred font is Gotham Book to use in tandem with the brandmark. This helps us keep a consistent visual hierarchy between the silo-brands and Outreach International’s main umbrella brand. The Sustainable Gifts Catalog is Outreach International’s only sub-brand that has its own branding guidelines deviating from these rules. Diva.

When stacking two or more lines of text, place the brandmark at the end of the bottom line of text. It can also be placed on its own line underneath the last line of text.

Trade Gothic Bold Condensed No. 20 should be primarily for bold headlines and text used as a graphic element. TRADE GOTHIC BOLD CONDENSED No. 20

TYPEOGRAPHY - WEB PRIMARY & SECONDARY It’s a good idea to use a web-friendly font with a broad presence so your font doesn’t get altered on various computer systems. These web-friendly fonts are used by web-content authors to increase the chance that their content will be displayed in their chosen font.

To optimize consistency and functionality, we’ve chosen these webfriendly fonts: Alternative Gothic No. 3 (to replace Trade Gothic), Montserrat (to replace Gotham) and Helvetica for body copy.

COLOR: 80 – 20 Orange is a vibrant color that we chose for many reasons. But it is best used as an accent. If there is too much of it, it can become overpowering. A good rule of thumb is to make sure, at most, the amount of orange is limited to 20% of the overall composition. This will allow us to make sure we have a solid visual hierarchy.

PRIMARY COLOR PALETTE

SECONDARY COLOR PALETTE

The color orange represents determination, encouragement and creativity—the very same attributes our staff and impoverished families display in the field.

All of the colors we’ve chosen are very intentional. The six colors below were chosen to accompany our six issues in the field. They make up our secondary color palette.

We want to evoke the same feelings in our supporters that we do in the people we impact in the field.

These colors have precise color reference values, as listed on the chart below. Always use the exact color values listed. Or else. Tints of the secondary palette are also displayed.

PHOTOGRAPHY Our photography creates emotion and gives us personality. It allows us to tell the story of our work, and provides insight into the impact we make in the lives of those affected by poverty.

Overall, our images should reflect warmth and vibrancy. This will help us add subtle touches of warm tones to reinforce the orange branding color.

Images should be meaningful and engaging, like our organization. We want to maintain the dignity of the individuals we’re highlighting. And we want our photos to be powerful, relevant and accurately portray the people we work with. The photographs should be carefully chosen to compliment any supporting material and catch the reader’s attention, inspiring them to read more.

COMMUNICATION HIERARCHY:

ATTRACT

No matter what format of collateral we’re producing, it’s important to be aware of the audience we’re addressing. The content and visuals for e-mails, letters, pamphlets and campaigns should be tailored to fit each audience.

Collateral focuses on a call to action or featured products.

When it comes to our messages, we should follow the Attract, Engage and Connect hierarchy illustrated in the following images.

28


ENGAGE

CONNECT

Collateral focuses on increased supporter involvement and advocacy.

Collateral focuses on informing and educating the advocate or supporter.
