    • INTRODUCTION Dear Reader, Over the past year, Eastern Oregon Visitors Association, Travel Oregon and Wieden+Kennedy have worked together to develop a new brand identity for Eastern Oregon tourism. Our collective hope is that this will help the region to unify its communications with a singular voice that speaks to the wonderful uniqueness of Eastern Oregon. To get here we’ ve interviewed dozens of local residents and business owners to develop a strong understanding of what they love about their home. We’ ve also conducted research with a diverse group of travelers from a variety of demographics and regions to tell us exactly what motivated them to explore Eastern Oregon, how they researched their trip and what they enjoyed most while visiting. With that, we’d like to give you this brand book . We see it as both a catalog of work and a tool to help generate additional creative. Inside you’ll find executions that in many situations could be used “as is.” We know, however, that there will be circumstances where this work will need to be customized. We’re hoping the examples here can serve as guidelines for layout and font as well as the tone of Eastern Oregon’s brand voice and how it should come to life across our spectrum of media. Thank you, and if you have any questions please contact Alice Trindle, EOVA , eova@eoni.com. –3–
    • DIFFERENTIATION
    • DIFFERENTIATION What Makes Eastern Oregon So Different ? Eastern Oregon is a large place, with many divisions within its boundaries. It’s no easy task to name the special attributes of a land so varied, with so many types of attractions. During W+K ’s travels through Eastern Oregon, we began to see and hear repeating themes, some of which we’ll outline in this document. Below are four concepts that Eastern Oregon’s many cities and towns can all use to inform marketing materials. They ’re not taglines. They ’re simply four attributes that can unify the marketing materials and, therefore, visitor perception of Eastern Oregon. Everyday History Endless Possibility Life Slowed Down to Perfection Affecting Beauty –5–
    • DIFFERENTIATION Everyday History Eastern Oregon is a rare slice of authentic America. The wagon wheel ruts of the Oregon Trail embody the Western heritage. Its residents continue traditions that hearken back to the very origins of the region. From Native American presentations and traditional meals to historic downtown areas teaming with ranchers and cowboys — Eastern Oregon is a taste of the real West as it was and still is. –6–
    • DIFFERENTIATION Endless Possibility Eastern Oregon has the assets of our geographical neighbors, but offers more diversity within a smaller range. For the adventurous, there is an amazing smorgasbord of possibility. A wide variety of landscapes provides an endless array of outdoor activities, from mountain snow sports to hiking, biking, horseback riding, rafting and kayaking. Intertwined with the many landscapes are a number of unique cultural adventures—from rodeos to museums and festivals, the culture of Eastern Oregon provides a rich blend of discovery and excitement. –7–
    • DIFFERENTIATION Life Slowed Down to Perfection The serenity of Eastern Oregon encourages people to sacrifice their addiction to stimulation, losing the big - city amenities of instant gratification and late night entertainment. They also get to lose their sense of fear and guardedness. Visitors can’t help but take a step back and enjoy a slower lifestyle. It feels like they ’re actually living instead of trying to stay above the rising current of emails and phone calls. For many, a stay in Eastern Oregon is like comfort food when the world gets to be too much. –8–
    • DIFFERENTIATION Affecting Beauty Eastern Oregon’s majestic beauty virtually knocks the wind out of you. The lack of crowds can make it feel like you’re experiencing the same thrill a pioneer enjoyed hundreds of years ago, the first time they set eyes on the landscape’s amazing expanse. This feeling tends to get deep inside the visitor, making it more than just a scenic backdrop, but rather a powerful spiritual experience to remember. –9–
    • BRAND PLATFORM
    • Brand Platform We, the Eastern Oregon Visitors Association, find ourselves in a strange predicament. We want people to come experience the rich physical beauty, warm hospitality and living history of our vast, beautiful region. Just not too many people. You see, we like secret fishing spots and roads less traveled. We like hiking mountains without seeing another soul and going to world- class restaurants that don’t require a reservation a year out, if they require one at all. We like being that hidden gem of a place that you only hear about through word of mouth from like -minded people. And we think you’ll like those things, too. So come, visit, enjoy. And tell other folks who will really and truly get it. People who will love our part of the country as much as you did. Just don’t tell everyone. –11–
    • AUDIENCE The best audience for Eastern Oregon comprises people who want time to relax and who choose their travel destinations based on values. They want a change from their fast-paced lifestyles— they want to turn off the cell phone and Internet. They ’re people who want to see the beautiful expanses without a timeline. They want to experience the land by rafting, riding or climbing it. They want to get out and touch and feel and reflect. People yearning for this kind of experience spend plenty of time researching the perfect vacation locale, using all kinds of information: magazines, books, online resources, word of mouth. They trust their friends and social groups who share the same values. Specifically, they are soft adventurers, cultural travelers and empty nesters. We also believe motorcyclist travelers are a strong area of opportunity for Eastern Oregon. –12–
    • Logo
    • LOGO Our logo is a modern take on old Western signage and is a nod to the classic Hatch Show Print style. It’s a reference to the past and the “ West” without being cheesy, ironic or over the top. –14–
    • SIZE REQUIREMENTS To maintain readability, logo size is important. The logo should never be printed smaller than 1.25". For larger materials, such as signage and billboards, use your best judgment for the size of the logo, but be sure to leave adequate clear space around the mark so the logo remains easy to find and read. Recommended minimum print size 1.25" Recommended print size 1.375" for spreads –15–
    • PREFERRED USE OF LOGO The preferred color for the Eastern Oregon logo is black when placed on a lighter background and white when placed on a darker background. –16–
    • LOGO DON’TS Do not stretch the logo horizontally. Do not stretch the logo vertically. Do not fill the logo with colors other than the recommended logo colors. Do not use on colors that lack sufficient contrast. –17–
    • BRAND TYPOGRAPHY The Eastern Oregon typographic style consists of two typefaces: Wood ( Block Condensed) and Paperback 12 ( Roman). To ensure continuity, these fonts are to be used in all printed works. Primary font Wood is the primary font and is used for headlines and headers. We recommend using Block Condensed. All caps is recommended for headlines and headers. Wood (Block Condensed) abcdefgh abcdefgh 12345 SECondary FONT Paperback 12 is the secondary font and is used for body copy. We recommend using Roman or, in cases of subcopy or smaller blocks of copy, italics. Bold is also an option. Uppercase and lowercase letters are used. Paperback 12 (Roman) abcdefgh abcdefgh 12345 Paperback 12 (Italic) abcdefgh abcdefgh 12345 Paperback 12 (Bold) abcdefgh abcdefgh 12345 web/electronic communications Use Times for web. –18–

    • PHOTOGRAPHY
    • PHOTOGRAPHY Photography for the Eastern Oregon brand should highlight the endless possibility for exploration. The images should convey a sense of wide - open spaces and endless sky while highlighting hidden gems like secret fishing holes and special hikes. When featuring people, we should show them in action as much as possible —rafting or enjoying a craft beer —as opposed to merely observing. Although Eastern Oregon is about enjoying a slower pace, it’s also a place to do and explore rather than sit and wait. We recommend desaturating the images to give them a dreamy, nostalgic quality that reinforces the idea of vast miles to explore while evoking a notso - distant past when life was a bit more simple and nature was all around us. –42–
