UNSER SCHTORI Waking up early to feed the horses, moving the cows and checking the fences, starting up the milking process and feeding the animals; these are just some of the tasks that you could experience while staying at Bauerai Haus. Founded in 1891, Bauerai Haus has become the largest functioning farm in Eastern Pennsylvania. Our family wants to connect people to rural living and educate your family on how their food gets to the dinner table.

The Dulleblumm (tulip) is the most basic motif of hex signs and it is one of the most ancient designs in PA Dutch western culture. The rosette appears on buildings, furniture, gravestones and pottery. The rosette design is a symbol for luck and widely known as a Dutch symbol which is why we show them in our logo.
PRIMARY LOGO The primary logo is a monoweight style that has a logomark and the name of the company together. We take pride in where we come from so Bethel, Penna is also in our primary logo. We have combined key symbols in our logo including the dairy cow, the chicken and our Pennsylvania Dutch tulips. This logo keeps our traditional customs of farming intact but brings in that modern touch of our new bed and breakfast. This is the main logo that will be used across primary brand applications. This trademark helps audiences easily identify Bauerai Haus products, web presence, ads and other materials around our farms. It is essential to the success of the brand that the logo always be applied with care and respect in every application. Color usage for the logo is shown to the left. Primarily, the logo should be used with the logomark in our navy blue and the title in our mustard yellow. Other than that, the logo is one color in our color palette. This applies to secondary logos as well.
The Guckerigu (rooster) was a big influence in a lot of the graphic elements and the color palettes of our patterns. Their intricate feathering is symbolized in the intricacy of the pattern shown in our designs. The rooster is also in our logo to symbolize waking up early in the morning to start our day off right.
SECONDARY LOGOS Bauerai Hausâ€™s secondary logos can be used in replace of the primary logo (but should never be used directly next to the primary logo). The badge logo can be used when the full primary logo is not necessary or in cases where the brand name is already displayed in plain text. For example, the badge logo could be used as a profile picture on Facebook or Instagram since the username will be adjacent to it in plain text.
GRAPHIC ELEMENTS These graphic elements can be used where there is need for a design in the Bauerai Haus branding. These design elements all contain graphics from the primary logo, therefore they will work with any of the Bauerai Haus branding. For example, if you would like the backside of a page to be branded, use the pattern on the back. The pattern shown here has a red background, but our pattern can be used with a blue and yellow background as well.
LOGO CLEAR SPACE To ensure legibility, always keep a minimum clear space around the logo. This space isolates the mark from any other competing graphic elements like other logos or body copy that might conflict with, overcrowd, and lessen the impact of the mark. The graphic element used to determine the clear space no matter what size the logo is, would be the Dutch Tulip design as shown to the right. The logo shown here on the right is the smallest size our logo will ever go in print and web applications. The exact measurements are 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches.

UNACCEPTABLE USAGE A few rules are necessary for maintaining the integrity of the brand. Donâ€™t compromise the overall look of the logo by rotating, skewing, or distorting in any way. This includes adding unnecessary and unattractive text decorations like drop shadows and outlines. Here are a few examples pictured above of some ways you should never consider using the logo.

COLOR PALETTE There are three main colors in the Bauerai Haus branding. These colors come from traditional Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Signage used on the sides of all historical barns on our farm. Traditionally, the color blue symbolizes protection and peace, the color red symbolizes charisma and passion and the color yellow symbolizes health and love. These colors represent everything Bauerai Haus hopes to accomplish through our mission.
