Brand Bible Design is the basis of any successful Corporate Identity. I can't stress the importance more. Any company looking to grow and establish themselves effectively in the market needs a well structured, well thought out visual guideline. This guideline assures visual consistency and assures professionalism across the board.
The Brand Bible formed part of the over-all rebranding done for Hoosen Wadiwala. This was the major drive for brand consolidation. Assuring any and all future creative work done for the company follows these exact guidelines.
Among this was logo orientation, exact pantone color usage. Best practice for print advertising etc. A Brand Bible is an ever growing piece of design material, as the company evolves, so does it's visual identity. This is a fantastic basis from which to start however.

These guidelines clearly stipulate how the logo should be implemented across the board. From safe space usage which can be seen in both print and digital to Logo best practices. What may be done and what should be avoided at all cost when creating any and all marketing material.
Color is one of the most important aspects of any established company. Assuring exact pantones are used across all material and guidelines are strictly adhered to. With thorough thought behind the design and a good understanding of color psychology. This gives us the ability to connect with our consumers on a sub-conscious level. Why does the artwork make you "feel" what you feel?
Choosing a font for a company is a seemingly simple task. However... Every aspect of design has a role to play in the end-product. Consider for instance using a font meant for "Friday the 13th" on "Valentine's day". Or any subsequent font that has no place in the final tone of voice. This is the task of any and all Font choices in brand establishment. All elements come together as one single entity.
