Acumed Brand Guide

Brand Guide Document

These guidelines are designed to give you an overview of our brand’s style. Our look and feel is anchored by our logo and Reticle symbol, and strongly supported by our signature fonts and colors.

We hope that the explanation of the inspiration behind the brand and the implementation specifics provided will help you build consistency and impact through all of your creative executions.

We have also included do’s and don’ts to provide useful guidance for implementing our visual style, as well as visual examples to inspire creativity and help you explore the Acumed look and feel in real-world context!

Logos

For most applications, we use the two-color logo. If this is not possible, use the black logo. If the media is a single color or the black logo can’t be used, the logo can appear in cyan.

In certain instances the logo can be reversed out of black or cyan in white. For internal communications representing the merger of Acumed and OsteoMed, use the combined logos.

For more information about logo usage please download the Acumed Brand Guide.

Colors

Bright, bold, light, and energetic colors help differentiate the Acumed brand. Large white spaces elevate the products and the moments that Acumed helps create.

The Acumed palette is bold and bright. With Cerulean as the primary color, our visuals have a refreshing look and feel. We use the gold and gray only as accents, with many gray tints available for varying visual purposes. Cool Gray 1 is used as our main tint to support visual lightness. When using the Acumed gold, it should not make up more than 5% of a design.

The Secondary palette may be used in small amounts when color coding value charts and creating callouts.
