OVERVIEW

Our brand is more than our logo. It is a design scheme made up of a number of core elements and guiding principles that combine to create a distinctive look and feel that is immediately recognisable as Saint Barnabas Episcopal Church.

This guide will help to familiarize you with the core brand elements to assist you in designing and producing dynamic and powerful communications with a degree of flexibility. If unsure, just ask us at info@saintbarnabas.org! Thank you!


LOGO

Our logo is the most visible element of our identity—a universal signature across all Saint Barnabas  communications. It’s a symbol of commonality that unites our diverse ministries. We use the same logo in print, on screen, and on the side of our buildings.

The logo is made up of two elements: the symbol and the logotype. Where possible, our slogan Boundless Presence may appear alongside our logo. The logo and/or slogan should not be altered from their original form in the files below. This includes distortions to proportions or typefaces. Please hold the shift key while resizing the logo in order to avoid distortion.

The horizontal orientation of our logo is recommended for instances of limited space where logotype cannot sit under the symbol.

Designer’s notes: for flexibility in print and digital media, a white color logo may also be used with one of the other official Saint Barnabas colors as a background or with a photo as a background. Furthermore, the logo can appear in any of the official Saint Barnabas colors with a white background.


Clear space

To ensure the integrity and legibility of the logo lock-ups, the area directly surrounding them should be protected. Clear space minimums are built into the logo files.


COLORS

When possible, please use white or one of the official Saint Barnabas colors as the background color for the Saint Barnabas logo.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Our photography captures stories through personalities, interactions, and experiences. We strive to use photography that’s natural, real, honest and straightforward. It’s never fake or frivolous. Our approach to photography is warm, fun, relatable, personal, and engaging. As much as possible, we use photos taken on our campus that capture real members of our community. In some instances, we source images from excellent royalty-free sources like Stock UpUnsplashLightstock, and Death to the Stock Photo. Even more image sources are available here.
