Logo

Main logo

The logo lockup of icon + wordmark is the most common and almost-always most appropriate usage of the logo.

Logo variations

Clear space

The logo should always be placed with enough space to ensure a powerful and clear visual image. The amount of clear space is equivalent to half the height of the mark, or 0.5y. It works both vertically and horizontally and must not be altered.

Logos on background colors

The full color logos should only be used on very light or very dark backgrounds.

Don’t use the full color logo on top of a photograph or gradient unless it sits on a very light or very dark area of the image.

The parent brand one-color glyph

The full-color logo is our primary logo.

In cases where we need a single color glyph, please use only either Glacier White or Nightsky Navy for the glyph and the wordmark.

Typography

Primary Font

Circular STD

Circular is a geometric sans-serif typeface with four weights—book, medium, bold and black—each with matching italics. Although the design is based primarily off geometric forms, Circular has quirks that give it a lot of warmth and make it a distinctive typeface to represent FreeAgent.

All headings and text should be in Circular whenever possible. For printed and embedded materials, Circular must be used. Contact our brand manager for licensing instructions if needed. When Circular cannot be used in web applications, use our web-safe alternative, Proxima Nova.

FreeAgents can find Circular STD font in your brand folder.

 

Secondary Font

Proxima Nova

Proxima Nova combines a geometric appearance with modern proportions. Available in seven weights—thin, light, regular, semibold, bold, extrabold and black—each with matching italics as well as small caps styles and condensed and extra condensed widths.

Proxima Nova is our web-safe font alternative. Use on all headlines and text only when Circular is not available (Google Docs, Slides, etc.) 

FreeAgents can find Circular STD font in your brand folder.

Alternative Substitute

Roboto

Roboto is an open-source, grotesque sans-serif typeface released through Google. It renders crisply on screens and is very legible, even at smaller sizes. Roboto is the default font used in many Google Apps, hence its ubiquitousness.

If both Circular STD and Proxima Nova fonts are not available, such as the case when only linux fonts are available, then Roboto is to be used.

You can find it here.

Brand System

Foundation elements

Our graphic system was developed with the dot pixel or cell in mind. This is also how our graphic system should be thought of; a light, free and organic system. The graphic system is used to ensure consistency across all marketing and communication materials. It is a dynamic and flexible system, where the FreeDot is the central element from where the other elements evolve.

The Free Dot is the central element from where the other elements evolve.

The FreeWing

Another important element is the FreeWing. It is a secondary evolution of the FreeDot. Each side of the FreeWing should keep the 100% Corner Radius of the FreeDot to maintain shape coherence.

The length of the wing can be freely adjusted depending on the the type of application.

Photo & Characters

Photos play a major role in bringing our brand to life. Our photo style is a balance between work and life-style ideas and communicates joyfulness, capturing professionals enjoying the freedom and empowerment of doing what they love.
 
People must look natural and relaxed, and not be in ‘posed’ situations. All photos should be color and not black & white. Cutouts and shape masking with solid backgrounds are used for our repeating brand photo elements.

General Photostyle Guidelines

Cropping

As well as ensuring pictures work well across folds, take care not to crop people’s heads, faces or bodies in an awkward way. Try not to use crops of people, environments and architecture that become too abstract.

Overuse

Be careful not to use the same picture twice in a document or repeatedly in a series of documents unless it is specifically relevant or an intrinsic part of a campaign.

Picture box shapes

Picture boxes can be square, rectangular and circular. Different shapes that result from the combination of different FreeDot evolution shapes are encouraged.

Pictures used as fillers

Pictures should not be used merely to fill a space. If a document has a lot of white space this can often aid a layout or design and is preferred to an awkwardly shaped picture box or an irrelevant picture.

Retouching/special effects

Retouching should only be done to improve the quality of a given picture and not an opportunity for trickery. Unnecessary blurring, pixelating, skewing and stretching (particularly stretching a picture to fill a picture box) should be avoided.

Copyright

Ensure rights or permission to use are secured for all photos being used. Where appropriate, permissions should be placed next to images in use. Ensure photo usage is in line with IP laws in relevant markets.

Product Illustrations

When illustrating a specific Product feature, we should include all of the Brand System elements and display the feature with consistent zoom, padding, margins and shadows.

Compound Graphics

Use an 8×8 Grid to create a dynamic device using a combination of different FreeDot evolution shapes.

There isn’t a concrete limit on the number of shapes or combinations for these compositions, but, remember that less is more and that the more balanced, the better.

FreeAgent for good

Compound Graphics

Different compositions can be achieved with multiple elements. Less is usually more.

Examples

Brand System Composition

All applications, materials, advertising and graphic design pieces must be a combination of all Brand System Elements:

Logo
Grid System
FreeDot Shapes
FreeWing
Photo
Product Illustrations
Type Compositions
Color-Block Backgrounds
