  4. 4. “DM Digital TV believes that its Our logotype viewers should be able to enjoy the television experience they demand, Our logotype is a contemporary, typographic representation of DM Digital Television Network name and the single most important element when they want it and in the format of our visual identity. It represents not just our name but also what our that is most appropriate to them at name stands for. the time.” Using our logotype It is vital that our logotype is always reproduced from the approved artwork. Never alter, distort or adjust the letterforms, typestyle or visual relationships, either digitally or photographically. Our logotype must always be clearly visible and positioned to carry or endorse all our communications. Artwork Artwork is available in the approved colors, in vector and/or postscript for- mats, including Illustrator eps, tif and jpg formats for both Mac and PC. Brand and Style Guidelines 4
  5. 5. Our logotype Safety zone To ensure maximum standout, we’ve created an exclusion zone around the logotype, as defined by (1X) which is equivalent to the height of the logotype’s capital ‘DM’ and indicated opposite in grey. This is the minimum area around the logotype that must be entirely free of any other typography or graphics. Apply this formula universally, regard- less of the size at which the logotype is to be reproduced. In excep- tional circumstances, it may be necessary to break the exclusion zone rule, but to do this you must have special approval from a Head of Marketing of DM Digital Channel. The DM Digital Channel tagline and URL are allowed to sit within the logo exclusion zone. 1X Positioning 1X In order to achieve visual consistency, our logotype should always be positioned centered or on the right hand axis (top or bottom) of the design layout, except when used in a co-branded situation. * based on a 1024 x 768 screen Brand and Style Guidelines 5
  6. 6. Our logotype Acceptable color treatments Our logotype needs to appear on a wide range of applications. It can be applied in a number of acceptable color treatments. The DM Digi- tal TV Blue (Color Treatment A) is the primary color and first choice for reproducing our logotype when appearing in color. On black and white applications (e.g. newspaper advertising) the grayscale version should should be used (Color Treatment B), except on occasions when the logotype is being reproduced at a very small size. In these instances the black version (Colorway C) should always be used (to ensure legibility). A black and white reverse image should only be used in extreme circumstances (for example in b/w newspaper print where space is very limited and The DM Digital TV is one of several sponsor logos placed on a black background). Permission for this use must be ob- tained specifically from a Head of Marketing at The DM Digital TV Channel. Brand and Style Guidelines 6
  7. 7. Our logotype What not to do Our logotype is one of our most important assets. Altering the logo- type in any way will undermine the impact of our identity and our brand, therefore we must use it in a consistent, relevant and unified way. The opposite examples show incorrect and inconsistent repre- sen- tations of our logotype. Please ensure that the artwork is used exactly as supplied and never altered. • Example A Do not change the logotype color • Example B Do not add drop shadows • Example C Do not alter the size or proportions of the typography • Example D Do not change the typography • Example E Do not stretch • Example F Do not outline • Example G Do not extrude or add 3D effects Brand and Style Guidelines 7
  8. 8. Tagline Tagline positioning Our tagline ' Bringing Asia Closer' helps reinforce our brand vision. Use of the tagline is encouraged whenever possible, but not required. When used it should always be treated as a sign-off. Do not use the tagline as a headline. The tagline should always be written in Interstate regular, using The Bringing Asia Closer DM Digital TV Channel Blue on lighter backgrounds (refer to the ‘Our colors’ section) or in white on darker backgrounds. The tagline should be approximately 150% of the width of the logo and either centered or flush to the left hand side of the logo. These are available in CMYK, Pantone, RGB and black and white, and gray scale formats. Brand and Style Guidelines 8
  9. 9. Our typeface Arial Regular Our corporate typeface (shown opposite) is Helvetica Neue, in weights roman, medium, bold and heavy. This is a classic sans serif font that is both versatile and functional. We use Helvetica Neue for all professionally designed and printed ap- ABCDEFGHIJKLM plications and all desktop publishing produced in-house. NOPQRSTUVWXYZ Arial abcdefghijklmnopq We use Arial for email, PowerPoint, letters and faxes. This is the default system font across both Macs and PCs. By using Arial we reduce the risk of data refor- rstuvwxyz01234567 matting between different users, systems and software, whether internally or ex- ternally. 89!@#$%^&*() Verdana We use Verdana for all online html copy as opposed to Arial as this font is easier DM digital television channel to read online (though not for text as graphics e.g. headlines). Brand and Style Guidelines 9
  10. 10. Our typographic style A typographic style has been developed to help create a consistent visual style for the brand. Our typestyle is clear, simple and always grounded on clarity and legibility. Some general rules: • It is preferred to use upper and lower case instead of all caps in con- tent or headings. • Headings and sub-headings should use initial caps. • Use weight or color (rather than size) for emphasis. • Keep the number of different type sizes in one application to a mini- mum. • Never apply type effects (such as shadows or outlines) to any of our typefaces. Brand and Style Guidelines 10
  11. 11. Our colors On-screen (e.g. internet ‘hexadecimal’ and Microsoft Powerpoint ‘RGB’) colors are illuminated and/or projected. The accurate and con- Our colors on screen sistent representation of the DM Digital color palette will therefore always be dependent on the age, quality and calibration of each indi- vidual monitor or projector. The CMYK references for DM Digital TV palette are: Primary Palette CMYK RGB Lab 100/90/10/0 28/48/126 29/12/48 The DM Digital TV Blue 0/0/100/10 233/213/0 87/-7/86 Brand and Style Guidelines 11
  12. 12. On-screen TVC DM Digital TV has unveiled a new era of affordable and impactful TV advertising. DM Digital TV will support you in building and bringing brands to life with the magic of the TV medium - sound, vision, motion, emo- tion which creates impactful advertising. Some general rules: • If you don’t already have one, DM Digital TV Graphics department will aid in creating an advert at very affordable costs. • Once we have an agreement on the proposal, we will put in writing the contract, which you need to confirm for your airtime booking. • As a new advertiser with DM Digital TV, a method of payment will have to be agreed. • The TVC file is required in the regular (non-widescreen) version rendered for regular television broadcast (standard defintion) in mpg format. Brand and Style Guidelines 12
  13. 13. Our brand property Rectangle Device The rectangle device is our graphic property through which we express our brand. It has three functions, as listed below, and can be used either photographically or graphically. DM Doorein Metaye, the original name of the television channel engages audiences from all over the world and relates to the memories or events with a human as- pect. Digital Today we all live in a digital world and our Television broadcast stimulates your senses digitally. Tagline Bringing ‘Asia Closer Inspires’ and reveals the depth of possibilities that inspires us to create channel programming to reach a wide set of audiences The rectangle device should always be a perfect rectangle, reflecting the shape of our logotype. Brand and Style Guidelines 13
  14. 14. Co-branding There are a number of instances whenDM Digital TV will join efforts with other com- panies in a partnership or marketing promotion. There are also instances when another company will endorse or sponsor a DM Digital TV promotion or product (show spon- sorships) or DM Digital TV will likewise sponsor or endorse another brand (official sponser). With any type of co-branding guidelines become subject to the terms of the participation agreement. It is always important to check with the Head of Marketing for the details of that agreement. Because some co-branding does not share equal partnership, some general guidelines follow: • DM Digital Channel logo should be bottom centered or in the lower right hand corner when promoting a program or show. The program logo should appear in the top half of the page, generally centered. It can appear in a square window device. When a partner joins this sponsorship, DM Digital TV logo should alway appear in the right hand lower corner (signature or sign-off corner) with the sponsor logos appearing to the left of the logo at an appropriate size. • For co-branding, DM Digital TV Logo should always have an equal visual impact to the partner(s) logo. For co-promotions which do not include equal partnership, logo propor- tions need to be established according to the terms of the participation agreement. These guidelines should be followed to maintain the integrity and visibility of The DM Digital TV trademark. • Place DM Digital TV logo in the lower right-hand corner of printed items whenever possible. • Never place a partner logo, or any other graphic image, within the safety zone of DM Digital TV Logo. • The DM Digital TV logo should never appear in a size less than the specified minimum requirements. Brand and Style Guidelines 14
  15. 15. Trademark usage The DM Digital TV® logo is a registered trademark of The DM Digi- tal TV Network Channel, Inc., and should be protected as such at all times. Trademark and copyright protection The trademark symbol ® must be included whenever The DM Digital TV logo appears as a visual image. Since clear visibility of the trade- mark symbol ® may be questionable on video tape or on-air, it may be omitted. However, a trademark and copyright statement must appear at the end of the programme for the on-air product and at least once per production of video tapes. These statements should also appear on printed materials and other products produced by or for The DM Digital TV Network. The official copyright and trade- mark state- ments, respectively, should read as follows: © 2010 DM Digital TV Channel, Inc. All rights reserved. OR © 2010 DM Digital TV Network Limited.
