BRANCH BRAND GUIDELINES

Representing the Branch brand

Branch is a global brand, so it’s important to maintain a consistent look and feel throughout all visual and written representations of the company.

From logos, color, and typography, to high-level messaging, legal documentation, and founder bios — this guide has it all.

Please note: this is a living document that will be updated as our industry and company continue to change and grow.

Company logo and badge

Often referred to as our word mark, our full Branch logo is a visual representation of who we are. Alternatively, the Branch badge is an iconic version of our logo without the word Branch being present. Your go-to in adding a logo to a branded design is the word mark, but some instances and designs require our simpler icon identity versus the word mark.

Logo display

Please use the logo exactly as it is provided. 

Using the full-color logo is preferred. However, in some cases a full-color logo may not be practical or possible. For these instances, use the color-reversed logo as a secondary option. 

Icon grey circle with an X inside   Do not alter the color of the logo.

Icon grey circle with an X inside  Do not lock up text to change the Branch name or add additional text, and/or skew the logo.

Icon grey circle with an X inside  Do not apply any effects, overlay the logo on a low contrast photo, or lock up the badge with the word logo.

Icon grey circle with an X inside   Do not change the Branch typography to any other than what is provided, move the nodes or add the nodes to alternate text, give the text a style, or alter the badge in any way.

Typography

Branch uses the typeface “Raleway” across all marketing and branded materials. Where possible, please use Raleway for Branch company summaries, founder introductions, or other blurbs about our company and team. If an alternate typeface is needed for the above listed content, please consider Arial

Colors and styling

Our Branch blue is the hero of our design assets. Is it a color that acts as a visual brand cue. It is important we never change the values of this blue as it is synonymous with our written logo or badge.

Inclusivity and accessibility are our priority

As a global company, we work to ensure that readers from a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and cultures feel included in our writing and can understand it, regardless of ability.

Branch abides by the following best practices for inclusivity:
  • Use gender-neutral pronouns (they/them/their) in reference to unspecified individuals.
  • When referring to persons with disabilities, emphasizing the person first – a person with a disability is not a disabled person.
  • Be specific about race, avoid broad generalizations.
  • Avoid regional phrases and slang, cultural references, and excessive jargon.
Branch abides by the following best practices for accessibility in writing:
  • Use accurate, detailed alt text for all images.
  • Improve readability with concise sentences and short paragraphs.
  • Avoid directional language (e.g., “top left nav” or “below is a list”).
  • Avoid abled language (e.g., users who are blind cannot “see more” and users with mobile disabilities might not “click here”).
