BRAND IDENTITY MANUAL A GUIDELINE FOR THE USAGE AND REPRODUCTION OF FIVE KEYS SCHOOLS AND PROGRAMS LOGO, IDENTITY SYSTEM, APPLICATIONS, AND MULTIMEDIA.


HELLO, WE ARE FIVE KEYS SCHOOLS AND PROGRAMS


Five Keys Charter School was founded in 2003, in the San Francisco County Jail. Nobody in the United States had ever attempted to launch a charter high school inside a jail, and the chances of success were slim. But a small group of dedicated people, working in concert with supportive members of the Sheriff’s Department defied the odds and made it happen. Since then, Five Keys has grown well beyond its early physical boundaries and has achieved more than its founders could have imagined. Our student body was initially comprised of prisoners and those released from jail, people whose actions have harmed their communities, and, more often than not, are themselves victims of abuse and neglect, but now also includes members of the community that are impacted by the difficulties of neighborhoods that are underserved. By incorporating a comprehensive high school curriculum in a fully structured schedule, Five Keys is able to help turn the shame of being without an education and the ignominy of imprisonment into the pride of knowledge and the dignity of being a constructive community member. These changes don’t happen overnight. Like the great baseball manager Chuck Tanner once said: “There are three secrets to managing. The first secret is to have patience. The second is to be patient. And the third most important secret is patience.” When we see a repeat offender earn their diploma from Five Keys and we hear them accept their own responsibility for their behavior as they move into a restorative role for themselves and their community, it’s like watching that player that you brought in as an unseasoned rookie hit one out of the park in their first major league at bat. On behalf of everyone involved with Five Keys, we thank the leadership and students of the Academy of Art University and their teacher, Thomas McNulty, for their time, their talent and especially their passion. Their contribution to the look and feel of our design will help us advance our message of Education, Employment, Recovery, Family and Community to a wider audience and forge new partnerships, which in turn will allow us to continue to expand and bring our important work to communities in need.

WE ARE SET ON CHANGING THE STATUS QUO.


In 2003, we began our mission to redefine the way people think about themselves, others, and their communities through education. We provide the underserved with opportunities to restart their lives with a focus on the Five Keys: Education, Employment, Recovery, Family and Community. Five Keys School and Programs is here to support and guide students to success. This brand identity manual will do the same for you. In here, we explain how the brand logo was made, how it carries its weight, and how you can best use it to your advantage for any form of media.

1.1 / LOGO Previous Identity

Previous Identity

This logo was based upon five open books with a star in the middle, contouring the inner negative space. This logo is a pictogram which can be easily understood as success through education, but as the organization grew, the logo did not, and it lacked flexibility in representing every other facet of the organization.

IDENTITY SYSTEM


Current Identity

Current Identity

The current logo symbolizes the moving forward for Five Keys as an organization. This look lends itself to a new era, taking a bold and modern typographic approach to match our ever-growing brand. With this inviting design, we hope to redefine ourselves while matching the needs of anyone that may step into our facilities.

Construction

The development of the logo can be seen in its construction. As the word mark is solely in lowercase letters, the x-height is its most important feature. Hence, the x-height of “five keys” becomes the X measurement of the logo. One-fourth of X is equal to the x-height of “schools and programs.”

Logo Graphic

This version of the logo is to be used in settings where a graphic is needed, but not necessarily the entire logo name. It drops the “schools and programs” subhead and crops off the “f” and “y.” More specifically, the left crop should sit snug along the stem of the “f” and the bottom crop should take one block from the bottom of the “y.” The result is an edgy and modern look, in accordance to the brand identity.

Secondary colors are used in different applications to help strengthen the logo and create a more developed brand. As secondary colors, they should recede in hierarchy, which is why they are different tones of the primary color. The reason for that is to maintain the qualities of the brand without diverting the attention away from it.

Dear Mr. Best, As Five Keys Schools and Programs approaches its 15th anniversary in 2018, I am honored and truly humbled to celebrate this momentous occasion with our teachers, staff members, partners and supporters including the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department, without whom the very idea of Five Keys Schools and Programs would not have been born.Most important, I am so proud of our students who continue to graduate on a daily basis from our in-custody and ever-expanding community programs. We have faced many challenges over the years especially from those who believed this idea was impossible to implement. Life is sometimes about leaping over barriers that keep us from the future we all deserve. We believe that “change is possible” and that by creating opportunities through education, the impossible becomes possible. The proof is in our graduates. I would like to welcome you as a new partner. I look forward to working together on the Five Keys Project and I am sure that you will be extremely satisfied with our schools and porgrams. You are invited to make an appointment to visit our shcool at your earliest convenience. We will be happy to show you around and discuss any aspect of our credit policy with you. Please let me know, if you have any questions.

Sincerely ,

Steve Good, Executive Director

3.3 / ADVERTISEMENT

Billboard

A billboard (also called a hoarding in the UK and many other parts of the world) is a large outdoor advertising structure, typically found in high-traffic areas such as alongside busy roads. Billboards present large advertisements to passing pedestrians and drivers. They work best with clear, concise messaging, as the people who are viewing it are on the move. Six or less words works best.

44

APPLICATION USAGE


Bus Stop

Advertising on bus stops/bus shelters will also help to reach pedestrians and drivers. Bus stop ads are available in almost every city across the country. Many of the people Five Keys is trying to target tend to be those who take public transportation, so a place where they wait for said transportation makes a lot of sense. Bus stop ads also target drivers stopped at stop lights in the city.

Caps

A snapback is a flat-billed adjustable cap that is typically worn by todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth. It is an accessory that can go with most styles of streetwear.
