CCN Graphic Standards Manual by TheRyanFord CCN Graphic Standards Manual by TheRyanFord
I think this is probably the first time anybody's uploaded a Graphic Standards Manual to deviantART.

Graphic Standards Manuals are documents given to recipients of new identity work. They're basically instruction booklets on how to use the new identity package.

So, to help the Collaborative Conservation Network, I've constructed this standards manual complete with possible applications of the identity.

You'll need to download the PDF to view this thing. It's a pretty small file, but if you're interested in seeing how these things are made it might be useful to you.

I may have commented on the logo already (<3 it), but had a question concerning your CCN _Comp1 business cards vs. this standards manual. On page 7 of the manual, you say that the type must always be to the right of the mark. But your business cards show the type as slightly above the mark. Does that count? Or have those comps been replaced with something else that I missed?

And how do you cope with clients who do violate the agreement set forth in the standards manual?

The type is still to the right.

And if clients dont follow the standards, it's their own fault and problem. It'll result in an inconsistent brand which can hurt their company.

Fair enough :)
