Why these colors? The following color palette was chosen to evoke emotions in the target audience and also depict colors naturally found in the everglades environment.The warm palette triggers energy and revival in adults, vibrant playfulness in children and fresh youthful happiness in teenagers.

VOICE & TONE Voice Based on the headline, “When was the last time YOU took a field trip?”, the voice should be slightly humorous and thoughtful, intuitive and playful. Since the target audience is children and families, the copy should appeal to kids and the ‘kid at heart’ in adults. The voice should also sound like a friend is talking to them, someone familiar showing them around Flamingo Gardens. Almost a hand-holding type of voice should be heard when reading the type.

Copy & Music The body copy and music alike should make the audience go to an unlimited and magical place of wonder. When you visit Flamingo Gardens, you get a sensory overload of beautiful tropical scenery and animals.The copy and music should only enhance the

emotion of the target audience, helping them to get the sense of “being in another world.”

Tone The tone should be childlike, talking to the child at heart in the audience, whether young or old. “Wanna see how otters play tag?” “Look at the huge crocodile!” “Follow me to see the bird show!” are just a few examples of the tone that should be used for advertisements and signage around the park itself. Using a consistent tone like this will help shape the brand of Flamingo Gardens and tap into the emotions of the audience.

FONTS Visual Voices Flamingo Gardens fonts were chosen to establish the rebranding campaign by providing stability, playfulness, and durability to last well into the future.


FLAMINGO GARDENS STYLE GUIDE

Headline

Filmotype LaSalle

Body copy Gill Sans Regular

Sub headers Gill Sans Bold Italic

Headers / Navigation Gill Sans Light

This font was chosen for its playfulness and attention-grabbing design. The tone of this font is “Hey, look over here!”, like a friend waving for you to hurry over and take a look. The logotype uses this classic font, which was chosen to give a strong and lasting impression for this historical company. The font is used throughout the campaign for brand unity. Gill Sans is a versatile font and ‘Bold Italic’ brings attention to the paragraph heading without distracting the reader from scanning the body copy. The curve and weight of this font resembles a flamingo, and also has an air of curious sophistication. It also does not compete with imagery or other fonts used in the campaign.

FLAMINGO GARDENS STYLE GUIDE

APPROVED IMAGERY Wildlife Images of wildlife should be close enough to distinguish what type of animal it is, and most of its body should be shown. Colors of the animal and its background should clearly contrast, not blending together.

Textures For advertisements and other print collateral, textured backgrounds are another option besides a more busy photograph.The photo of dirt to the left leaves ample space to the left of the leaves for copy placment.The vector sample has a light colored background of tiled leaves which is also acceptable.

could see at Flamingo Gardens. Use single-person shots moderately and more of groups of friends and/ or groups of families having fun together outdoors.

Nature Use shots close enough for the viewer to see the intricacies and details of the beauty of the plants shown. There should also be space for copy in the top third of the photo. In this image of palm leaves, a large heading can be placed in the sky area on the top left corner of the page.

Human Element When images of people are used, opt for waist-up shots where they are smiling in front of a natural outdoor setting with foilage similar to what a visitor
