  • Club Matters brand guidelines v1 | Oct. 20143

    Our brand is a unifying and inspirational emblem for our entire organisation. It represents everything that we are and want to be. It culminates in the brand promise, made up of the sum of all the experiences of those that come into contact with Club Matters.

    The brand is the overall impression of Club Matters that people hold in their minds – what they know about us in practical terms, and how they feel about us emotionally.

    As such, our brand is key both internally and externally, and these guidelines have been prepared to help maintain it and communicate it through all new collateral.

    How to use these guidelinesThese guidelines should be used for all external facing collateral and all formal internal communication channels that use the Club Matters logo. They have been prepared to offer complete and robust advice for all elements of our brand and all known channels.

    We are constantly reviewing our brand and how we communicate it, to ensure it is relevant and supports both our current business and our aspirations for the future, but if there is anything that you need that is not included in these pages please contact the Club Matters Marketing.

    The Club Matters brand

    Section 1 – The Club Matters logo

    Logo in more detailThe brandmark represents support for people who need help with managing and improving their clubs.

    The use of interlocking hexagons expresses the idea of support, foundation and hub. Dynamic use of colours help to reference the spirit of sports - Energy, Community and Well being.

    This resulting device is a modern logo that balances a sense of solid reliability along with vibrant energy.

    The strapline ‘Supporting Your Sports Club’ is an integral part of the logo, but can be used separately as a sign off where legibility becomes an issue.

    Do not change the strapline without the express consent of the Club Matters Marketing Manager.

    Our logo

    Logo position (minimum)

    Preferred positions (top LEFT and bottom RIGHT)

    Logo useThe logo should be used on the front of all branded materials, and on the inside of multi-paged documents. In some cases inside pages may omit the logo. There are other versions of the logo where space is an issue, examples of these logos can be found in on page 7. Please contact Marketing Manager for guidance.

    Exclusion zoneAn exclusion zone must be created around the logo. No text or elements should appear in this area. When the logo appears on an image background, then no image detail should intersect with this space. Every effort should be made to ensure that the logo is clearly defined on top of the background.

    The standard units of measurement used in these guidelines is the hexagon around the word ‘Club’. The position and treatment of the logo must be consistent throughout the whole of each document following the guidelines set within this document.

    The logo must be scaled proportionately according to the page size and other considerations.

    Only files supplied by Club Matters may be used for the Club Matters logo. Never change the position of any of the logo elements (Brandmark, strapline, Hexagon shape).

    Connection to Sport EnglandClub Matters is supported by Sport England, therefore this relationship is designed to create a clear connection between the two organisations. This flexible system ensures brand hierarchy and allows both logos to be shown in a clear and professional way.

    Sport England logo size is determined1 by the width of the word ‘Club Matters’. Minimum size still applies (See page 7)

    PositionWhen possible it is best to left aligned as indicated by blue keyline2.

    Don’ts

    Do not separate or move any of the logo elements

    Logo useWhen choosing the correct logo for your application please consider output/file size and background colour.

    There are various versions of the logo to choose from, the first choice would be the positive version which can be used on front covers, powerpoint presentations, html emails and stationery items. Only use the negative version over a dark background.

    It is imperative that when using the logo, its proportions or colour remain unchanged.

    Scaling the logoSizes are offered for logo usage on standard paper sizes on page 7. For non-standard sizes please choose the most appropriate size example relationship from the guidelines and scale accordingly.

    The logo must always be scaled proportionately, never stretched or skewed.

    Always use the appropriate logo file for the artwork, noting that bitmap files may not be scaled beyond 125%.

    There is no maximum size for the Club Matters logo, but when working in large dimensions care should be taken to ensure that the exclusion zone is maintained at all times.

    Graphic backgroundThe master graphic uses elements/echos of the hexagon shape to add a sense of activity and energy to pages and documents where imagery is not relevant.

    The background can be scaled, cropped into and composed in new arrangements to best fit the content within a page.

    There are two types of graphic, one is composed of hexagons in combinations of outlines and solids. The other is made up of gradients within the hexagons to create a texture. Type 1 is best suited for emphasis of something while Type 2 is useful for covering large areas. These two styles can be used together to add more vibrancy if need be.

    The gradients are made up of the Club Matters colours. Whilst there are no fix rules on colour combinations (page16), it is important that they compliment each other, if unsure please use the ones created in this document as a guide.

    Section 2 – Colour palettes

    Primary colour paletteAdopting the colours from Sport England, the primary colour palette should be used on all core communications.

    Because of this diversity of colour it is best to chose colours that reflect the tone of the document. They help with information hierarchy and add some personality to your document. Care must be taken not to use too many colours per application.

    Primary colour palette

  • Club Matters brand guidelines v1 | Oct. 201417

    Secondary colour paletteThe secondary colour palette are gradients produced by the resulting effecte of colours chosen from the primary palette (page 16).

    It is useful where images are scarce or when a flash of energy is needed such as charts, diagrams or signage. Combined with the hexagon shapes shown in page 14, it is an integral part of the brand expression.

    The examples shown on the right have been created through careful selection of colour combinations to achieve a pleasing tone.

    Whilst there are no rules on colour combinations please consult the brand manager when creating new colour gradients for the best possible result.

  • Use of imagery

    Section 4

  • Club Matters brand guidelines v1 | Oct. 201421

    Section 4 – Use of imagery

    Use of imagery with the brandImagery is an important aspect of the overall impact of the brand identity. Our identity uses two types of photography – brand driven images, point and shoot or ‘reportage’.

    Brand imagery is focused on activity. The subject matter is as diverse as there are different codes of sports. They should promote the idea of performance, resource, teamwork, positivity etc.

    Point and shoot can be a good way of reporting events, but users should adopt a common sense approach to image selection. Avoid using images which are blurry, out of focus, low res (screen or print), inappropriate content etc.

    Key considerations when using imagery:

    1. Its origination: All brand imagery should be Club Matters commissioned projects. Please contact Club Matters Communications ([email protected]) for dispensation to use any other imagery.

    1.1 images that show people’s faces require a model release.

    Composition and subject matter

    2. Imagery should either:

    2.1 Emphasise activity

    2.2 Have a sense of energy

    2.3 Have good lighting

    3. Size, treatment and positionImages may be used in these ways:

    3.1 full bleed or cropped in to emphasise the sport.

    4. Have the correct tone for the message; either aspirational, professional, positive, community, teamwork, fun.
