09/02/11 HP_presentation_template The HP brand elements have evolved. New elements include: The +hp brand device will be used throughout our communications, but does not replace the HP logo. Photography will continue to provide most of our main visuals at all levels The photographic style is bold, rich, simple, graphic, optimistic, energetic, tangibly real, and timelines. Photographs should never look staged. While black and white photography is a creative option, it is the exception, not the rule. Illustrations can be used in certain cases where it is more suitable or inventive than photography. The HP illustration is bold, sophisticated and poster-like. It should never look like clip art. Graphics are another new unifying element which enhances the meaning of the communications. Graphics can stand alone or be applied over photography or illustration. They are not arbitrary or merely decorative. They must advance the meaning of the communication. Approved photography, illustrations and graphics will be made available in the Creative Resource Library (CRL). To ensure color in our work is consistently bold, simple and vibrant, we’ve simplified our color palette to 16 colors. HP’s one and only typeface is HP Futura. No other font is as simple or as versatile. The HP invent logo will appear in blue, black or reversed white depending upon the communication. The way we speak is as important as what we say. The HP tone of voice is intelligent, informative, human, optimistic and witty. It is not arrogant, obscure or negative. It is not filled with jargon or jokes. Copy should be brisk and informative, pragmatic but never dull. It should reflect our passion for our customers and for our work.
