The logotype comprises a logo and wordmark created specifically to reflect the brand promise and character.
The brand is always represented by the logotype or the logo alone, never by the wordmark alone.
The default logotype is the two-colour version against a transparent background and this should be used wherever possible.
The grayscale logotype is used when documents are presented in black and white or when additional contrast is required.
Alternate versions of the logotype are provided for specific uses when the default logotype is unclear or not strongly differentiated.
Black and white versions are used against backgrounds that would make the default logotype unclear.
Colour block versions are provided for occasions when the logotype is presented surrounded by other brands, such as on a third party website. Colour blocks should use the primary color palette and the entire logotype only.

The color palette comprises five primary colors and five, darker, secondary colors. White, black and a neutral shade of grey may also be used.
Primary and secondary colors and the neutral grey may all be used at saturations of 100%, 75%, 50% and 25%.
The brand includes five geometric patterns that may be used to add depth and interest to blocks of color.
The patterns may be tessellated and the proportions and transparency changed to suit the needs of the design.
Our primary color sets can be applied to our patterns in a variety of different ways to allow for maximum flexibility.
Each of the six colorways includes a light and dark hue version and can sit either on a white background or on the color set’s supporting color.
The five patterns can also be used as watermarks across communications that require a more subtle graphical approach.
The watermarks can be used in two different ways. Either as a 10% (black) sitting on a 5% (black) background, or a 10% (black) sitting on a white background.

Photography may be selected from stock libraries but should always keep in mind the following principles:
Our brand is about honest counsel, not egos. Images of people should not focus on faces but on interactions.
We use photography exclusively, not vector images to represent the brand.
Images without people should emphasize our roots in corporate communications and should use creative or non-traditional angles.
All images should include an accent color in either blue or red to match our color palette
Images should be clean, well composed and aesthetically pleasing
