2 Logo

2.1 Logomark

Our logomark, “The Eekatta Button”, consists of a crescent, a bar, and two checkmarks.
Together they form a disk emblazoned with an uppercase “E”. The crescent shape, which gives
the button its dimension, symbolizes growth, while the checkmarks symbolize achievement.
There are several verisons of the button that can be utilized dependent on the size and
application, but the shape should never be modified. The button should only be used
independently of our logotype in rare instances where space is extremely limited, such as
icons. it should always be unmistakeably linked with the Eekatta name.

2.2 Logotype

The Eekatta logotype is derived from the BP Replay font, but has been customized to provide
balance and legibility. The shape of this logotype should never be modified in any way and it
should never appear without our logomark.

EEKATTA BRAND GUIDELINES

2.3 Primary Logo

Our primary logo is a combination logo that aligns our logomark and logotype in a horizontal
orientation on a white background. This is also referred to as a “logo lockup” because the
spacing should never me modified.

2.4 Alternate Logo

Our alternate logo is a combination logo that aligns our logomark and logotype in a vertical
orientation on a white background. The alternative logo should only be used where
composition demands it.

2.5 Logo with Tagline

The logo with tagline provides space for a tagline or web address below our logotype. It
should never be used for secondary branding information.

2.6 Logo Spacing

The following diagrams explain the logic used to arrange the elements of our logo. It’s
important that these proportions are maintained to keep our logo consistant.

▼▼
▼▼

Fig. 2.1 Points aligned in red dictate proportion and alignment of the logomark and logotype.
The width of the letter “t” dictates the space between the two.

a EEKATTA BRAND GUIDELINES

▼ Fig. 2.2 The width of box “a”dictates the
a proportion of logomark and logotype. The two
a should be ceter-aligned to one another. The letter
“t” dictates the space between them two as
shown.

lorem ipsum dolor

½a ½a

Fig. 2.3 The width of the letter “t” dictates the space between the logomark and tagline as well
as the space between the logotype and logmark. The width of the tagline text should
be inset from the logotype by half this width. The cap line of the logotype and the base
line of the tagline dictate the scale and alignment of the logomark.

3 Logo Variations

3.1 Monotone

Keep contrast between our logomark and logotype in monotone applications.

3.2 Single Color

A knockout white version of the logo can be used over solid color or subtle gradient no lighter
than the examples below. It’s suggested that a 10% black “glow” be applied to the logo to
improved contrast.

The alternate versions of the Eekatta button shown here are intended for standalone use in
applications that require single color silohuette icons.

3.2 Full Color Icons

These variations on the Eekatta button are provided as examples of how shadow and gradient
can be applied to give our logomark more contrast and impact in standalone applications.

4 Logo Usage

4.1 Clear Zones

on the minimum clear zones defined below.

5 Typography

5.1 Logo Typeface

This typeface is for use in our logotype ONLY and should never be applied elsewhere.

BP Replay

BPreplay developed from the need to improve MgOpenModata, a rounded typeface made
available as an open source font from its owner Magenta. The regular weight of
MgOpenModata went through a series of glyph corrections, and in several cases complete
alterations (eg. a, epsilon, zeta, xi, omega, etc.), and BPreplay regular was born. BPreplay
italics, bold and bold italics, together with small caps and old style numerals, were
redesigned from scratch based on BPreplay regular.

EEKATTA BRAND GUIDELINES

5.2 Primary Typeface

This typeface is the voice of our brand. Amongst other properties, it was chosen for it’s wide
selection of free font weights. These should be employed generously for both web and print.
The default weight for paragraph text should be “Light” for web and “Book” for print.

Fira Sans

Fira Sans is an open-source typeface designed by Erik Spiekermann with additional
contributions from Carrois Type Design. It was created for the Firefox OS in 2013 and shortly
thereafter released as open-source. Fira Sans is heavily based on Spiekermann’s FF Meta and
features a contemporary humanist design with open apertures and a large x-height. The Fira
family is still under active development and currently features nine weights with matching
italics as well as a monospaced version.

5 | TYPOGRAPHY

5.3 Secondary Typeface

This typeface is used for text that might be found on a test. It was selected for legibility in
long passages and it’s similarity to Minion Pro, which is widely used by the College Board. It
also has a resonable selection of math symbols available for a free font.

Cochineal

Cochineal is a fork of Crimson Text, a remarkable creation of Sebastian Kosch. Crimson Text is a
font family for book production in the tradition of beautiful oldstyle typefaces like Garamond. As
such, it features oldstyle figures, small caps, fleurons, math characters and the like. e name
Cochineal is intended to suggest that, while it is Crimson, the font may have bugs involved. More
than 1500 glyphs were added to Crimson for the creation of Cochineal, allowing a more than
modest chance that some poor spacing or kerning or accent placement might have been introduced.

7 Brand Application

7.1 Imagery, Elements, Pattern & Texture

7.1.1 Imagery

Eekatta imagery should feel contemporary and
connote self-guided productivity. Preference the
use of gradient maps with white highlights
applied to simple, but dynamic close-cropped
images with ample negative space. Doing so will
help maintain our brand palette and provide
opportunity for overlayed copy.

7.1.2 Elements

Use the crescent, bar, and checkmark shapes
from the Eekatta logomark as inspiration when
creating brand elements. Preference the use of
circles and rounded forms derived from the logo
shape that suggest depth and isometric
perspective.

7.1.3 Pattern & Texture

Our brand doesn’t call for an extensive use of
pattern or texture. Preference solid color
combined with subtle gradient, low opacity
shadows, and tinted overlays.

EEKATTA BRAND GUIDELINES

7.2 Brand Application Example

The file “Cover Example FINAL.pdf” is intended to serve as an effective application of the
Eekatta brand. Notice the document’s background is roughly 50% white. A white background
behind the Eekatta logo is strongly preferred for any print document. Light colored
backgrounds and horizontal bars are used to define sections of text. Tints of black text are
combined with colored and knockout white text to help create heirarchy. Outside of the logo,
Fira Sans is the only font used. The use of several font weights helps reinforce heirarchy. Drop
shadow and icons draw the eye to more important text.
