The following are guidelines and rules surrounding the use of our brand, which reinforces our values, vision and mission. The guide will not be able to predict each unique situation, but will help refine your approach and create a path for using our brand materials in a purposeful way.
The Faxaroo brand is held to a high standard. The brand, perception and reputation of Faxaroo is maintained under strict control. Where the brand is represented, whether that be externally or internally, we expect that it is held to that same high standard across all channels.
We reserve the right to deny any use of brand materials, such as our logo and brand elements for any reason, at any time.

The centre of our brand identity.
Our logo is how our customers tell us apart from a crowded industry. It’s a promise of quality, consistency, and reliability. As such, it is vital that our logo is presented correctly in every execution. This section covers these guidelines in detail. Any use of our brand logo outside of or conflicting with the contents of this section will be considered unauthorised.
The brand logo identifies the Faxaroo brand as a whole. Use this logo to represent everything about the Faxaroo Brand.This logo is a locked artwork and must not be edited in any way.
Each brand logo lockup has several colour variations for use on different background types, tones, and colours. When in doubt, use the most legible version of the logo for the available background. For printed executions, special care should be given to ensure logo legibility on the final media or material used.
When subtlety is desired, the Faxaroo icon can be used in place of a full brand logo lockup.When this mark is used, ensure that our brand name is visible near or in relationship with the icon.
Maintaining optimal and minimal logo sizing is vital to the legibility of the mark and overall brand recognition. The execution will often dictate the right logo size. But in order to maximise legibility, try to use the largest size (within reason) for each logo version listed. In some circumstances, it may be acceptable to use the minimum size.
Clear space, or negative space, is the area that surrounds the logo that is completely clear of any other graphical element. Clear space helps the logo stand out from the rest of the elements on the page and ensures legibility, even at small sizes. As a general rule, the more clear, or negative, space around the logo, the better. At a minimum, there should be clear space equal to the 1/2 width of the Faxaroo icon on all four sides of the logo. Using an element from the logo as a unit of measurement ensures enough clear space at any size.
Contrast is the name of the game when considering placing the logo on any background. Our logo should not only be legible; it should also make a clear, strong statement when used. If there is not enough contrast between the logo and the background, the presence of the logo is weakened. The logo may be placed on photographs, textures, and patterns as long as there is enough contrast for the logo to be visible.
Placement of the logo on canvas is vital to a consistent visual style.
Where our logo is placed communicates a great deal about our brand’s visual style. As a general rule, our logo should not be centred in an area. We typically favour a left-aligned layout with the logo aligned to the primary grid line—the spine. Exceptions to this rule will inevitably surface. When in doubt, connect with a member of our team.
