  6. 6. 1.2 Area of Application and Validity 6 Interrelation between CD Switzerland and CD Confederation CD Confederation : The corporate design of the Swiss Confederation (“CD Bund”) is the visual identity of the federal administration. The corporate design of the federal administration represents the administration and its departments. It applies to the Federal Chancellery, the departments, the offices and all organisational units of the first and second circle. See CD Switzerland : L Lofo The Corporate Design Switzerland is applied out- side of Switzerland. It is used for the Swiss presence abroad and defines its content and visual basis. As the FDFA, Presence Switzerland, is a federal office, the CD Switzerland is subject to the guidelines of the CD Confederation. The CD Switzerland has been approved by the Conference of General Secre- taries on 25 January 2008. The way in which the guidelines of CD Confederation are implemented in the framework of CD Switzerland will be explained in detail in chapter 3.Introduction November 2010

  32. 32. 2.8 Visual World / Photography 32 Images reflect Switzerland’s brand values. Therefore, the right choice of images is crucial for the communi- cation abroad. Central elements of the Swiss world of images are the Alpine habitat and Switzerlands’s people. The Alpine habitat and its characteristic features on the one hand evoke strong associations with Switzerland. On the other hand Switzerland’s people make the Swiss history, values and achievements become alive and tangible.Corporate Design Elements November 2010
  33. 33. 2.8 Visual World / Photography 33Style Images within the CD Switzerland arecharacterised by their natural style.Landscapes and situations taken fromeveryday Swiss life convey an imageof authenticity and believeability, as wellas an image of a country where highquality matters. For this reason, photosmust not be artificially changed ormanipulated. Poor quality pictures mustnot be used.Colours Wherever possible, images shouldcontain Switzerland’s national colours,red and white. They should be part ofa natural context, for example in back-grounds, clothing or accessories.They should never give the impressionof having been added to the pictureartificially.Picture database at:www.image-switzerland.chCorporate Design Elements November 2010
  34. 34. 2.8 Visual World / Photography 34Composition/ContentEvery picture should tell a little story.Create suspense in the composition ofthe picture by using contrasts (small /large, close / far, bright / dark, etc.),special angles or an unusual focus.Show a lively picture of a modern,active Switzerland in all the segmentsof today’s life from contemporaryarchitecture to traditional customs andfrom natural spectacles to nano-technology.Avoid the ordinary and obvious.In exceptional cases, it is permitted touse renderings, artificial images(paintings, etc.) and black and whitemotifs.Picture database at:www.image-switzerland.chCorporate Design Elements November 2010
