Logo and Branding Design Case Study
This is a delicious fish fries restaurant. Various types of fish are sold here. All the customers coming here and eat their favorite fish fries with self-satisfaction. The area is very clean and pleasant. The company decides to design the brand to make it more effective, sophisticated and bold. So they are excited to design their Fish Flame logo and branding design with the very significant concept.
The Fish Flame Brand
The logo on this page is the master Fish Flame brand. It is our identity, representing our organization, our people, our history and our services. Our logo has inherent value and equity that should never be diminished or compromised by:
• Altering the logo. • Or dismantling its elements.

Text Formatting of Logo and Branding Design
Having established The Fish Flame positioning and values, we now need to bring them to life with a visual identity and tone of voice.
The following pages explain more about the brand elements and how to use them consistently across all media and communications.
FONT SIZE AND FORMATTING OF LOGO AND BRANDING DESIGN
• Font size 12 point.
• Font type Nexa Bold.
• Text left aligned, central alignment used for tagline only.
• Text contrasts effectively with the background.
• Main text in upper and lower cases.
• Underlining and italics avoided. Use colour, bold or a larger
font size to highlight keywords or headings.
• Avoid stretched or crammed words, justified text and hyphenation.
• 1.15 minimum line spacing preferred.
• Include a space between each paragraph.
• Bullet points solid and bold.
Logo Edge, clear space and Resizing
The logo should be used as follows:
• Over light or white backgrounds that allow for maximum readability.
• In reverse when there is enough contrast to allow the logo to be visible against the back ground.
Our logo must stand out clearly. This applies not only to the background, but also to interference from nearby text, photographs and other elements that might compromise our logo’s impact. The logo may sit on a photographic background but legibility and clarity are key.
Our logo must be proportionally balanced to the size of the document being created. In all cases the logo should never:
• Bleed off the edge.
• Be cropped.
• Be invaded in any way.
• Be distorted.
SIZING AND MISUSE
Under no circumstances should the logo artwork be altered in any way, including distorting the proportions, altering the typography or omitting any part of the logo. Always use the master artwork and ensure that proportions are maintained
and colour is accurately matched. Here are some tips to help you resize the logo correctly.
Resizing the logo:
1. Select the logo.
2. Hold down Shift + Alt key.
3. Click, hold and drag a corner point out to enlarge.
4. Drag inward for a smaller logo.
It is extremely important to use this method when scaling the logo to avoid squashing or stretching the logo out of its designed proportions.
Corporate color, mono and reversed logo Variations
The Fish Flame logo has 24 variations as shown. It is preferable to use the ‘Corporate colour logo’, however other logo options have been created to accommodate occasions where the preferred option will not work.
Print – eps. These files are used for high resolution printing for brochures and high quality marketing collateral. It should also be used when sponsorship branding is requested from external suppliers.
