Branding guidelines for basic usage of the 2Wire brand, including logo usage, color palette and fonts January 2009

Abbreviated Branding Guidelines


Brand Philosophy
The corporate brand is most often represented visually by our signaturethe 2Wire logo. Placing this logo on external communications, proposals, internal memos, or any other document or online communication instantly communicates a level of importance, seriousness, and commitment. The brand is also communicated through a combination of secondary elements including other corporate logos, the three-color flag, color palette, typography, and graphic styles.

Logo Usage
The logo does not include a tagline at this time. No other words or symbols should ever be attached or placed in association with the logo. The logo must never be altered or modified in any way.

Minimum Clear Space Protection


It is essential that the logo remain free of graphics, photography, typography, and other elements. The logo must always be the most legible and viewable element in any given graphic space. The unit of measure X equals the height of the 2 in the 2Wire logo. The minimum required clear space is a distance of X surrounding each side of the logo.

What Our Brand Represents


Innovation Professionalism Commitment

When to Use the Brand


The 2Wire logo should appear on all formal communications where the intention is to deliver information to or request information from a person or an organization, where the communication is sent on behalf of, and/or impacts 2Wire. 1X 1X X 1X 1X

Brand Guidelines
Corporate Branding Guidelines have been established to ensure proper usage and placement of corporate brand elements. It is important to follow these guidelines to ensure that the brand is being represented in an appropriate and consistent fashion.

Proportions of the Logo

The 2Wire Name in Communications


2Wire always appears in text written as a single word, combining the numeral 2 with the word Wire into a single word. W is always capitalized and ire is always lowercase. Never use all capital or all lower case. This rule follows for any and all references to the company (2Wire and 2Wire, Inc.) as well as to company website URLs and email addresses (2Wire.com and info@2Wire.com, for instance).

The logo was constructed with an aspect ratio (height to width) of 1 : 3.88. This proportion must never be altered. Particular attention should be made when placing the logo in an application (such as Microsoft Word, or PowerPoint), where the image proportions can be changed by dragging the corners of the picture window box. Hold down the Shift key when dragging a corner to maintain the correct aspect ratio.

Logo Color
The primary corporate color is Pantone 1795. Please note that the direct RGB translation of PMS 1795 is too hot on screen, so the RGB values have been adjusted to ensure that print and screen materials look the same. See Corporate Color Palette section for correct color usage. If necessary, the logo may be reproduced in black. Gray shades are not recommended and may only be used with the approval of 2Wire Brand Marketing.

Corporate Color Palette


Usage
The tables at right provide color specifications for a variety of displays. Always refer back to the Pantone Matching System (PMS) as the reference standard. For print production, use Pantone spot colors for the most accurate color reproduction. Use CMYK equivalents when process colors are required, for instance when reproducing 4-color prints. Note: PMS 1795 Red should be used for all print projects on coated stock. On uncoated stock, a custom ink mix should be used. if you intend to use PMS 1795 on uncoated stock, please contact Sydney Williams in 2Wire Brand Marketing at swilliams1@2Wire.com for ink formula specifications.

Hierarchy
Use primary colors first in all corporate communications. Secondary colors may be used in addition to the primary palette only when more levels of meaning or differentiation are needed. For example, secondary colors could be used in a residential network illustration, or a complicated block diagram, or a pie chart with many segments.
