Here are guidelines to help you use the VE brand and brand assets. To make any use of our marks in a way not covered by these guidelines, please contact Tyler Fugazzie at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a visual mockup of intended use. This was developed in collaboration with Konrad & Paul.
This document includes an explanation of the VE logo and word marks, primary and secondary colors, suggested color ratios, proper and improper usage, fonts, co-branding examples, image branding examples, and details about the VE-JV brand.
The primary part of the logo is the logo mark. This is now the heart and soul of what represents VE. The logo mark consists of two main parts – the VE letters joined together and a circle surrounding them, which we’ll refer to as “the globe.” The logo mark can be used by itself wherever possible, and we can further embrace referring to the brand as simply “VE.”
Full Logo with Type
The second half of the logo is the “logo type.” This is set in the brand typeface Montreal and adjusted to look good alongside the mark. No one should ever type out this text by simply using the font next to the logo, but rather always use an approved logo lockup or file.

The secondary colors reaffirm the diversity of the VE ecosystem. They are meant to be bright and hold good contrast against not only the main logo colors but against other design elements and photography as well. Certain colors, such as the yellow, tie to other VE branches, such as VE-JV. Again this is to emphasize the cohesiveness of the VE universe.
