Divider Line and Connecting Line Usage | Brand Guides

Our brand has simple graphic tools that work together to distinguish us from our peers and create a look that is instantly recognizable. When they are used consistently, these elements create continuity within our family of materials, across a variety of media.

Simple Lines

Lines are an elementary graphic treatment, but by applying them deliberately, we can elevate a single design or family of communications. An easy way to be thoughtful about the use of lines is to establish a common weight throughout an entire piece of collateral.

Connecting Lines

Connecting lines are used as accents, providing a visual of movement to static layouts. Always use provided art files to maintain consistency. These artfiles can be scaled in size, stretched, or extended, rotated and faded to accommodate designs.
