AUSSIE FARMERS DIRECT BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES

About these guidelines


At Aussie Farmers Direct, our brand identity
is one of our most important business assets.
It reflects who we are, what we stand for, our
values, personality and our commitment to
our community. More importantly our brand
identity differentiates us in the marketplace
and provides a tangible expression of our
professional approach to business and operations
for our team members, clients and suppliers.
These guidelines have been developed to provide a basic
understanding of the Aussie Farmers Direct brand. They provide
an overview of our core elements and outline the best practice
for achieving consistency across all our communications. It
is imperative theyre followed with accuracy. Please ensure
the correct and appropriate design software is used in the
implementation of our brand identity. If in doubt please contact
the Aussie Farmers Direct Marketing Team for further guidance.

Committed to our community


Aussie Farmers Direct provides a fresher,
fairer, better alternative to the supermarkets
for people who care about where their food
really comes from.
Fresher because we only deliver 100% Australian fresh produce.
Fairer because we put purpose before profit.
Better because we know from our thousands of happy customers
and supporters that love what we do and how we do it.

THE PILLARS OF OUR BRAND ARE:


Purpose: We are determined to drive a fair deal for Aussie
farmers and shoppers and we are committed to helping secure
a healthy, sustainable future for Australian farming.
Quality: We source only genuinely great quality food from
well run and maintained Aussie producers.
Convenience: We constantly innovate our service to ensure
we are the most flexible, intuitive and customer-focused online
food retailer.
Value: Our customers can be confident that we offer great value
for money while ensuring a fair price to farmers and producers.

Introducing our brandmark


The beauty and
simplicity of a pear
serves as the core
foundation to our
iconic brandmark.
As a form it embodies all the
wholesome, generous and
authentic qualities which is so
abundant in the nature of our
products and in our relationship
to our community of farmers,
suppliers and customers.
Our brandmark is the most
visible element in our brand
identity. It should be used
and applied in a consistent
manner in accordance with
these guidelines, across
all applications.

Brandmark variations
VARIATIONS

MASTER POSITIVE

CORRECT APPLICATION

INCORRECT APPLICATION

MASTER REVERSED

CORRECT APPLICATION

INCORRECT APPLICATION

At present there are two


versions of our brandmark
available for use across all
applications. A positive and
reversed version.
Each version has the ability
to be applied over colour and
imagery. Whilst this allows us
a huge range of flexibility, it is
important to ensure the clarity
and legibility of our brandmark
is never compromised.
Featured opposite are a series
of examples which demonstrate
how our brandmarks can be
correctly applied. An indication
of incorrect application is
also provided.
Please ensure our brandmarks
are only ever reproduced from
the master artwork files.

AUSSIE FARMERS DIRECT BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES

Using our brandmark

CLEARSPACE
Our brandmark is strongest
when surrounded by safe
clearspace with no other
elements interfering with or
diverting attention from it.
Ensure that type, imagery or
other graphic elements do not
fall within the clearspace area.
The clearspace is determined
by the height of FARMERS
in our wordmark.

MINIMUM SIZE
Adhering to minimum size
restrictions ensures correct
reproduction and legibility
in all applications.
Shown opposite are the
minimum size restrictions for
print and digital applications
for our brandmark.

AUSSIE FARMERS DIRECT BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES

Slogans we use
The personality of our brand
is bold, fun, fair minded and
collaborative. We must always
try to emphasise that our fresh
produce is 100% Australian. As
a result the following lines have
been developed as preferred
slogans to help communicate
our message of authenicity:
Shop fair. Eat fresh.
All our fresh food is
100% Australian. Guaranteed.
Featured oppposite is an
example of how you may apply
these slogans in combination
with our brandmark. These
examples are shown here as
an illustration only and do
not indicate a set approach to
application. Always consider
the end format and the
intention of the application
before committing to any one
of these defined lock-ups.

Digital

10

THE FOUNDATION OF OUR BUSINESS

Example 1: Facebook Profile

Today the multitude of digital


channels on offer, enables more
ways than ever to communicate
with our customers. The nature
of this digital presence means
our brandmark needs to
withstand the rigour of many
different websites, platforms
and devices. It is critical to
ensure our brand looks its
best regardless of where
or how its being viewed.

In instances where the end


placement results in our
brandmark sitting over a busy
image, then regular clear
space rules apply. Here on our
Facebook page our brandmark
sits on a white background over
an image, so it is important that
clear space rules are considered.

APPLYING OUR BRANDMARK


TO SQUARE FORMATS
It is common in most digital
environments for our brandmark
to be featured within a square
holding shape. This could include
anything from a profile image
to a favicon.
The conditions surrounding
the final placement of our
brandmark, will ultimately
determine our approach to
creating a suitable file. Featured
opposite are a couple of
examples of two alternative
approaches that apply our
brandmark to create the
best possible result.

AUSSIE FARMERS DIRECT BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES

Example 2: Website Logo


On our website, the placement
area for our brandmark sits
over a pastel background.
Since there are no interferring
objects or graphics on this
background, our brandmark
can sit comfortably at the
maximum possibe size within
a transparent PNG square.
Here it has been positioned to
the far left of its holding box
to assist an alignment with
the menu options.

Colour
VIBRANT AND VITAL
Colour plays a critical role in
our experience of the Aussie
Farmers Direct visual identity.
Bright, vibrant, expressive
our unique colour palette is
a reflection of the diversity,
charm and personality that
is so inherent in our brand.
Featured opposite is a range
of specifications which are
critical to ensuring our brand
colours maintain a consistency
across all applications.
Primary Palette
Our primary palette has been
established as a core range of
brand colours. These serve as
a foundation set only and do
not maintain exclusivity or
precedence for use across all
our brand applications.
Secondary Palette
Our secondary palette offers a
greater spectrum of colour to
work with. It is typically used
across all our promotional and
campaign driven collateral.
With time, it has the opportunity
to evolve and transform.

Typography
ITC American Typewriter and
Giorgio Sans have been selected
as our two primary typefaces and
should be used across all brand
applications.
Each has been chosen as a
contrast to the other and enables
us the opportunity utilise their
characterful traits depending on
the message and subject matter
of our communications.
ITC American Typewriter is full
of character and personality. It
enables us to communicate the
authenticity of our offer with all
the personality and charm that
our brand exudes. In contrast,
Giorgio Sans being a tall,
condensed typeface, delivers
on credibility and assurance.
In the event our primary brand
typefaces are not available
(eg. for our website), we have
specified Oswald and Roboto
Slab as appropriate alternatives.
Both are available from Google
fonts.
For internal applications where
our brand typefaces are
unavailable (eg Word, email etc.),
the Arial standard system font set
is the most suitable replacement.

Our brand visual language


makes use of a range of iconic
silhouettes, which are of objects
and subject matter related to
our business.
They offer a simple and flexible
graphic look which is immediately
recognisable and enables us
a great deal of opportunity to
create strong, consistent brand
applications with confidence
and ease.

of silhouettes which have been
developed as artwork files and
are available for immediate use.

The implementation of our brand


silhouettes into our communications
is intended to be a simple and
flexible process that enables
creativity whilst maintaining
an effective consistency across
all applications.
Achieving an effective application
will come down to implementing
a few basic principles:

The freshest,
tastiest,
most delicious,
mouth watering,
heavenly, locally
grown produce
of the highest quality,
has arrived...
and is right here.

1. Use a strong, instantly


recognisable silhouette
2. Include a punchy copy line
3. Introduce a bold background
colour

Whip
it good!

Featured opposite are a few


additional points which build
on these basic principles and
help to identify some key points
which should be considered when
developing communications.

5 NEW BAKING
IDEAS YOU NEED
TO TRY

AUSSIEFARMERS.COM.AU

ITC American
Typewriter is our
preferred typeface
for communication
headlines. Giorgio
Sans can be used
as a contrast for
secondary lines.

AUSSIE FARMERS DIRECT BRAND IDENTITY GUIDELINES

Depending on the
application, ensure
the headline is short,
smart and concise.
Have fun with it,
as this is a prime
opportunity to inject
wit and personality
to help capture
attention.

Consider the
weighting of our
brandmark against
the silhouette.
Theres no set
formula, however
its important to
ensure the heirarchy
is clearly addressed
depending on the
application.

Ensure a part of
the copy headline
bleeds off the edge
of the silhouette. It
shouldnt be done in
any way that affects
the legibility, but just
enough to connect
the copy with
background.

Experiment with
our colour palette.
The background
colour doesnt always
have to reflect the
subject matter of
the silhouette.

Examples of our brand language


Featured over the next couple
of pages, are a few examples
which demonstrate how all our
brand elements can be combined
to create effective and consistent
communications across a range
of applications.
