Our 
Logo

The Obsidian logo is the sole visual indentifier of your company. It should be used on all brochures, catalogs, spec sheets, signage, stationery, vehicles, on-line applications and presentations

The primary logo consists of a symbol and the name of your company written in a lowercase wordmark. The Obsidian logotype should primarily be used in full colour.

Each Obsidian logo variant includes the following terms appended to their filename to assist you in using the correct one.

The monotone version should only be used where black and white print is required, the logo should not be reproduced in greyscale. The priority of their use is signified by their filenames mentioned on page 03.

When using the logo on the Obsidian Red it is recommended you use the light monotone version in the provided logo pack.

Logo 
Module

Proportions, space & size relationships of all blocks have been carefully developed and must not be altered, redrawn, embellished or recreated in any way. Sizes mentioned here are for your reference only.

The module of the logo is determined by the weight of the icon’s ellipse.
Its relationship to the wordmark is marked by this relationship as depicted below.

An important part of maintaining a consistent presentation of the Obsidian logo is keeping a clear area around it from other text, graphics or illustrations. Crowding the Obsidian logo detracts from it’s legibility and impact.

The Obsidian logo must always fit into the protective area, which cannot be intervened by other graphic elements which could hinder the legibility of the brand. The protective area is defined by the the weight of the icon’s ellipse, as illustrated below.
