36 Great Brand Guideline Examples
Always useful to see a steady stream of Brand Guideline Examples, especially when the collection is well packaged like the one over on Content Harmony, as in the case of: 36 Great Brand Guideline Examples
Also helps that they’ve linked to my own set of Brand Guidelines (below): in the form of downloadable a ready-made template to be used and abused by whoever.
You can find these, and more examples of templates over at: Logo Templates For Download
But I sort of digress, so lets get back to the post that Content Harmony created for us. They have created 7 sections, listing various styles and types of Brand Guidelines, which are listed below:
- 1. Cohesive Brand Guidelines
- 2. Typographic Brand Guidelines
- 3. Extensive Brand Guidelines
- 4. Minimalist Brand Guidelines
- 5. Voice & Tone Guidelines
- 6. Grid-Based Brand Guidelines
- 7. Inspirational Brand Guidelines
Lot’s of guidelines to mooch over, and draw some valuable inspiration from.
As they say at the beginning of their Great Brand Guidelines, “Brand integrity is a fragile thing, so it needs to be treated as such. Brand guidelines are, in essence, your owner’s manual on how to “use” your brand. These guidelines will be referenced by everyone who touches your brand, internally or externally, and will often be partially reused in future brand identity revisions. Because of that, it’s important that you define enough of the guidelines to keep your brand consistent, but keep them short enough that contributors can actually digest all of the rules.”
