Typography guidelines

Typography plays a significant role when creating a brand identity for your client. It’s as important as a logo because typography is everywhere. A client will use it on a website, brochures, business cards, and even T-Shirts. And, when doing everything right, people will recognize the brand based even on what font they see.

Obviously, your design studio can’t always oversee how your client uses the font you have chosen or created after the project goes live. So defining the rules of working with the type is vital. Do it in the style guide.

We know what information to add to the style guide. Usually, you should define:

  1. Brand typefaces;
  2. Typography system;
  3. Pairings;
  4. Pairings guidelines;
  5. Typography guidelines;

Typography will help you to build a strong and lasting brand for your client.

Use a Style Guide like in IBM, Uber, Slack, McDonald’s, and NASA.

You might think these giants have something special, something unavailable for you and your clients. Even though their style guides are confidential, they are not unique!

We had worked with giant corporations and then used that experience to create this Style Guide Template. So it has a similar structure, information, and chapters.

After downloading, you will use the best practices from the top corporations! Moreover, the style guide is filled with ready-to-use content for you to learn how to explain the work performed professionally.

This style guide will transform your design practice for the better. One day, you’ll look back at the moment you downloaded this Style guide and marvel at your progress and the number of successful projects you were able to deliver!

REVIEW:

My original review of the template was pretty bad, but almost immediately the designer changed the issue and added in paragraph and character styles, so that the document would be more easily modifiable for other brands. Thank you

Complete Verbal and Visual Brand Guideline Template for Adobe InDesign

REVIEW:

This brand guideline template is exactly what I need as a Brand Strategist and Visual Designer. For months, I struggled to find a brand guideline template to distinguish me as a branding professional. I required not only a visual identity guideline, but also guidelines for verbal identity and marketing collateral. I also needed a template made with Adobe InDesign, the industry standard software for print layout design. This brand guideline does everything I need and is a great starting point for brand strategists who want to streamline production. I will be adjusting page sizes for US clients and adding my own additional verbal identity pages. Thanks Nikita and the Smotrov Design team!

The client enjoyed it and we successfully finished the project

REVIEW:

I purchased this template for my identity project because I didn’t have enough time to create something from scratch. So I browsed the internet, found some templates on Behance, but then discovered this one on LinkedIn (Nikita Smotrov posted this in his profile). As a result, I made a few changes, and it was ready to go. The client enjoyed it, and we successfully finished the project. Recommend!

As a person who bought the previous 65-Page style guide from smotrow design, I can say that this new version is very improved. It has new sections, a better quality, and, of course, so much more content. I recommend you purchase this amazing template.

It’s a very good and professional template. I made a few changes to the structure to fit my project, changed its color scheme, and sent it to my client. He really liked it! I’ll be using this template in my upcoming projects.

This guide looks like it was done by an expensive design studio! So your fees will grow.

REVIEW:

At first it may seem that the product is quite expensive. But based on what you get – I assure you it’s not. Based on what I’ve seen before on the market, it’s really the best. It is professional, and it looks like it was done by an expensive design studio 😉 So your fees will grow. If you are looking for a style guide, I recommend you this product.

If you are looking for a perfect brand style guide - this product is what you need.

REVIEW:

Just have downloaded this guidebook. I’m very impressed! The structure is amazing, with all the most necessary sections like Messaging, Tone of Voice, Purpose, and lots of sections related to the visual identity (logos, typography, imagery, etc.). If you are looking for a brand style guide that you want to use in your work with clients and don’t be embarrassed (and not put a lot of work into it) – this product is what you need. Even though this guidebook is quite expensive, the value you get from it is immense. You will earn much more.

It is worth every bit of what they charge for it! I recommend it to all graphic designers!

REVIEW:

There are lots of brand manuals on the market right now – I see them on Behance, Dribbble, Google. But they all were created for sale. By this, I mean that they are not connected with the real work with clients. However, this style guide is worth every bit of what they charge for it! It’s very comprehensive, with ready-to-use descriptions, structure, content. Just download it, make small changes, and it’s ready to go! You have created an amazing product! I love it!
