brand “Any fool can put on a deal, but it takes genius, faith and perseverance to create a brand.” David Ogilvy

“Your premium brand had better be delivering something special, or it’s not going to get the business.” Warren Buffet “The more you engage with customers the clearer things become and the easier it is to determine what you should be doing” John Russell, President, Harley-Davidson “The primary focus of your brand message must be on how special you are, not how cheap you are. The goal must be to sell the distinctive quality of the brand.” Kerry Light, Brand Strategist

J O U R N E Y

It was a defining moment when we realised something at Red Meets Blue. Something that changed us. We realised that our ability to design was not merely enough. It felt empty without direction. It was only in our commitment to the strategic process of understanding a brand, it’s audience and what a brand really neeeded to say that our designs came alive. When we made that decision to truly invest into the process of branding, we found something special happen. The brands we created made sense, and not just to us, but to those who interacted with them. These brands out performed the others. The foundation of research, strategy, long conversations and creative thought had reaped the rewards we’d been longing to see. The results speak for themsleves, and we have been committed to building great brands ever since that day.


Our process is defined. It is built on strategy. It provides room for creativity. It thrives on measurability.

The Audience: Our messaging framework How do we tailor our message to engage with each level of the audience? This is vital to understanding how best to approach the market

Senior management Directors of company

Management Hiring/HR managers Recruitment managers Commercial manager

important to us too

Use recruiters because... Our messaging focuses on the decision to use recruiters

We used to be in your shoes. We don’t like it, and never be like that. We’re not recruiters. We’re organisations to develop processes, streamline y best people to fill positions. We then offer after o ensure the relationship is long lasting. Now that er does it?

Use Mills because... Our messaging focuses on ensuring our value proposition is so high that they pitch our services back up to management if costs are cut

Icon vs Text We recommend trialling both text only logos and logo/icon combinations but with each icon, ensuring it is not over communicated. It must be simple, easy to understand and dynamic.

Use Mills instead of... Our messaging focuses on separating us from the rest of the market - we are unique and different

The Font & Typography Font recommendations are semi-bold (not too light, not too bold) in a modern (not traditional) style font. Font should be innovative to communicate the consulting side of what we do but also strong and sturdy (as a connection to the industry we are a part of).

Here to help not hinder Our messaging focuses on reaffirming that we are here to help not hinder, and to work with over a period of time. Our involvement is the best thing for you, not the worst thing

Voice Tone should be self assured, confident, straight to the point, friendly, open, transparent, positive, enjoyable to deal with (as opposed to boring) and smart. We want to come across as the clever/smart brand who knows how to say things right.

Key Differentiations

EXPERTISE FROM EXPERIENCE

SERVICE TO BOTH SIDES

The ability to identify quality candidates and find the right people for the right job is vitally important and not a process to be treated lightly. We are good at it because we’ve done it so much.

The ability to take care of candidates post placement with all the extra stuff is what ensures longer, happier, more successful placements.

The Logo

Colour Palette We recommend continuing to utilise the blue (light blue) whilst also bringing in a secondary colour for further differentiation still within the blue/green palette. The cooling/calming effect of these colours are non confrontational in approach.

Manager instructs them on who they can use

Team Senior recruiter Recruiter

Describing statements

Visual style The Mills Visual style will be friendly, engaging, precise and cool. Where we will differentiate from the industry is in our attention to being a cut above the competitors and our visual style will aid in that communication.

Additional Reading

Direction on graphics Graphics should be streamlined, clean, with a good use of imagery (playing with colour and mono tone blue). When using people in the shots, must feel authentic, real (not fake and stock photo bought).Clean lines, jagged angles to communicate precision, strength and design. Comparative Designs Architectural design logos and European consulting style businesses. Both of these comparative design style industries deal with construction / logic / process driven / people as a combination and still manage to develop an innovative look to their brand. Copy writing Friendly, to the point, less words instead of more. A focus on the story, the why, the purpose instead of just the what. A focus on why we’re different instead of just the services we offer. Trademarking process We recommend this logo and brand mark begin the trademarking process for national and New Zealand protection ensuring the brand can move forward without any potential roadblocks. Application & context Logo will be seen in sales pack print, motion graphics describing video, online website and stationery / email contexts as the primary devices.

Come in and try our 98%* fat free frozen yoghurt. Your body will thank you for it.

Stop working for your garden and start enjoying it. Go Green artificial lawns require little to no maintenance, which means you’ll not only save on your water bill, but save time and effort doing those annoying garden chores.

reasons to go green

01 Integrity. at go green, we want what you want – the best lawn and garden solutions for your property, without stress. We’ll answer questions directly, provide accurate information, and follow up on every undertaking.

*All our frozen yoghurt is 98% fat free. See in store for details.

02 Professionalism. We’re the best installers in the business. that’s a matter of pride. Inferior installation has poor seams, peeling edges, lumps and bumps, problem drainage. We inspect every piece of lawn we lay for faults and to ensure that it meets our high standards. 03 Quality guaranteed. Confidence is a wonderful thing. With warranty of up to 8 years on all go green lawns, plus a free 6-month maintenance check, you’ve got it. 04 environmentally responsible. go green’s products are great for your home environment and save water. But we go further. our company plants 10 trees for every new installation. Yes, really. You won’t see them in your backyard, but they’re out there. 05 easy payment options. We all have times when upfront payment hurts. at go green, we ‘get’ that interest hurts too. If you want to discuss payment options, it won’t hurt a bit. 06 Wholly Wa-owned. these days, you sometimes face a choice between backyard cowboys and big national or multinational companies. We’re neither. We’re a solid, local company. We’d say we were grass roots if that wasn’t so yesterday.

Stop working for your lawn 13 44 25 www.gogreenartificiallawns.com.au

07 Health-conscious. there are artificial products out there that don’t meet our standards. We’ve seen lawns from certain large asian manufacturers that just don’t cut it. all our lawns are either australian-made or the imported from the netherlands (we know how fussy the Dutch are). safe for children and pets, our products exceed all quality assurance standards.

Check out our collection of prisitine lawns on our website, or call us for more info. www.gogreenartificiallawns.com.au 13 44 25

Brand Style Guide & Brand Book

Lots of shapes but what do they mean? We are many different people coming together to form one. We welcome all walks of life, ages, cultures and people and the shapes within our new logo represent this diversity of difference who call Riverview home. Why 5 shapes ? Because 6 didn’t look as good. We’re not interested in coming up with elaborate and contrived meanings to sound clever.

Step 4: Online Brand

We are Riverview Church.

Step 5: Brand Story

Riverview Church So now these shapes have come together. They subtly form a stylised ‘R’. Why? Because it’s cool, that’s why. But there’s more to it then that.

Our new brand.

Step 6: Brand Campaign

The colours represent diversity, energy and a celebration of differences coming together under Christ.

Riverview Church

The gaps and spacing between the shapes demonstrate our desire for community, not for perfection. They’re spaced slightly differently, and this is intentional. We’re not trying to be perfect, we’re just trying to be us, saved by Grace, and a community of worshippers.

Riverview Church

Add the font. Our font is strong, but welcoming. Capitals shout, and we don’t like shouting, so it’s not all caps.

Riverview Church

It’s creative, modern, edgy, and yet still warm, and embracing. It’s usable, and versatile as full colour and one colour, and it’s balanced as a shape.

It is legible (for the design critics out there). It’s called Gotham. That’s a cool name right?

It’s simplicity means the icon can be the hero, and every logo needs a hero, and it maximises versatility.

Riverview Gotham, our chosen typeface. Church

Gotham is modern, clean, clear and bold. It’s doesn’t look old or

stale, or unnecessarily showy. More importantly, it’s quite a round and friendly typeface, making it the perfect style for us to talk with. Most

importantly, it’s got the coolest name you could ever think of for a font. Alphabet

Spark* will utilise promotional material where appropriate.

Although the organisation direction is not to be “gimmicky”, it is still likely that Spark* merchandise will develop, and here are some easy hard and fast rules to utilise when applying the logo to promotional material and stationery.

Web

For printed designs and documents, use Gotham. Gotham is not a free font, so you’ll need to install it on your computer first, before using it.

For web designs use Gotham when text is rendered as an image. When the text needs to be editable, we use a similar substitute font called Proxima Nova, which can be found here https://typekit.com/fonts/proxima-nova

Riverview Church

G Look at the G. Gotham is bad-ass.

When all else fails and Proxima Nova cannot be used, the final fall back is Arial - good old reliable Arial.

Business Card template is above (left). For a new card, email spark@redmeetsblue.com.au and artwork will be organised for you.

Logo Usage Guidelines

Page 11

helping others light the way

Exculsion zone a.k.a The Forcefield The logo needs it’s space so that it can breathe. Think about it like a talking to someone, we all have our own personal space where we feel comfortable at. Close talkers make us feel uneasy, same goes for our logo. This box signals that no elements should intrude into this space.

The Spark logo is the brand’s single most effective communication

You’re probably not going to wip out the calculator everytime you do a use the logo, but just try to visually memorise this area and remember, the logo, like a person needs his/her personal space.

The way that it is used is of the utmost importance, in order for us to communicate a consistent and unified image.

Colour Palettes

Reversed out on main Spark* colours.

The Spark* colour palette is full of big, bright and bold collours.

These colours are intentional in conveying the bright future that we as an organisation look forward to. It also communicates the message of excitement and hope - key values of Spark*.
