THE COUNTY BOUNTY LOGO If ever in doubt, use this version of the logo.
LOGO SYSTEM EXPLAINED 1
Through a series of designed graphic elements, this visual system creates a compelling, all-encompassing, and distinct identity that separates The County Bounty Artisanal Soda Co. from its competition. 1. BRANDMARK. A brandmark icon is meant to quickly attract a user’s attention in an intentional and visual manner, sparking an immediate expression of curiosity and leaving a last impression. Here, the brandmark is a symbolic mark for The County Bounty Artisanal Soda Co., its products, and the values it represents.
2. WORDMARK. A wordmark is the textual portion of the logo, which is crafted through careful consideration of its typeface to create a sense of unity when viewed in conjunction with the corresponding brandmark. 3. TAGLINE. A tagline is a descriptor that provides additional context when used with the brandmark and wordmark. 4. LOGO LOCKUP. The logo lockup is the thoughtful combination of the brandmark, wordmark, and the tagline. The combinations between these three elements are determined by the context in which they are used.
WHITE TRILLIUM. The white trillium serves as the official flower and emblem of the province of Ontario, distinct for its three-petaled flowers. It reflects the Ontario-grown fruits that are proudly used to support local farmers.
C AND B. The hidden C and B letters refer to the “County” and “Bounty” found in the company name. The counter (holes) of the letter “B” additionally serve as seeds for the strawberry shape.
STRAWBERRY. The strawberry recalls The County Bounty’s humble beginning, starting with a pallet of strawberries. It is a nod to the serendipitous discovery of transforming these strawberries into cordials. The rest is history.
03. LOGO OPTIONS.
LOGO: BRANDMARK The brandmark icon is the crowning jewel of The County Bounty brand identity. The brandmark must be kept uniform throughout all of its applications, with the exception of the strawberry pattern. Alterations to the brandmark icon are prohibited.
LOGO: WORDMARK As with the brandmark, the The County Bounty wordmark must retain these proportions and spatial relationships for all of its uses. Its orientation may change depending on its use through one of the following variations. The wordmark should rarely be used on its own and should be accompanied by the brandmark. Alterations to the wordmark are prohibited.
LOGO: VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL STACK Both the vertical stack and horizontal stack versions of the The County Bounty logo lockup must retain these proportions and spatial relationships for all of its uses. The vertical stack and the horizontal stack should only be used where the primary logo would be unsuitable, at one’s own discretion. In addition, because the vertical and horizontal stack do not have the bounding box surrounding the graphical elements, it is important to consider the amount of required clearance around the logo. Alterations to the vertical stack and the horizontal stack are prohibited.
LOGO: VERTICAL AND HORIZONAL SIGNATURE As with the previous elements, the vertical signature and the horizontal signature must retain these proportions and spatial relationships for all of its uses. The exception is that the use of “Artisanal Soda Co.” is removed from the logo. The vertical signature and the horizontal signatures are specifically formatted for use where a small graphic element is required. Alterations to the vertical signature and the horizontal signature are prohibited.
LOGO: ONE COLOUR AND TWO COLOUR VERSIONS Both the two colour and one colour versions of the The County Bounty logo must retain these proportions and spatial relationships for all of its uses. The one colour logo version is the preferred version of the logo that should be used whenever possible, especially if only one colour can be printed. Alterations to the two colour logo and the one colour are prohibited.
LOGO: ALTERNATE ONE COLOUR VERSIONS All alternate one colour versions of the The County Bounty logo must retain these proportions and spatial relationships for all of its uses. The alternate one colour variations should only be used where the primary logo would be unsuitable, or to create additional contrast to any promotional materials or products (e.g., creating contrast between the logo and soda can labels). These colours will be described in the next section. Alterations to the alternate one colour variations are prohibited.
LOGO: BLACK AND WHITE AND REVERSED VERSIONS Both the black and white and the reversed versions of the The County Bounty logo must retain these proportions and spatial relationships for all of its uses. The black and white version of the logo should be used for black and white applications, or whenever colour printing may exceed the allotted budget. The reversed versions of the logo should be used in black and white applications or on dark coloured backgrounds for added clarity and legibility. 0.5” (without tagline) and 1.5” (with tagline) options are shown to demonstrate the logo’s reducibility; however, in order to maintain the logo’s integrity, it is recommended that the logo be a size of 1.5” or larger. For smaller applications, using the brandmark on its own may be ideal. Alterations to the black and white and the reversed versions are prohibited.
PRIMARY AND SECONDARY COLOUR PALETTE The County Bounty logo uses a total of two primary colours: PANTONE P 55-7 C and PANTONE P 52-6 C. In addition to these two colours, the logo also has a secondary colour palette, which

consists of three colours: PANTONE P 157-7C, PANTONE P 133-5 C, and PANTONE P 88-13C.

The primary colours were selected for two reasons. One of the reasons is that the Bounty Berry colour represent a hue traditionally associated with raspberries, indicative of the most popular flavour. The other reason is that its hue also represents Fall, which is the season when farmers begin to harvest and enjoy the rewards of their labour. Luscious Greenery was chosen as it refers to the freshness of the ingredients used and alludes to the care that goes in every soda.

The secondary colours were selected as they are complementary to the primary colours. In addition, these colours were selected as they provide the highest level of contrast depending on its use. These colours serve to remind the consumer of the locally-sourced fruits used in the sodas while remaining visually appealing for branding purposes.

TYPEFACES: BERGEN TEXT AND MELBOURNE Melbourne is used as the typeface as it is a sans serif that offers hints of distinction. It is simple yet sophisticated, giving the overall The County Bounty logo a clean and modern appearance. In addition, it has rounded corners that complement the curved nature of the logo. Melbourne is used for the logo. With a minimal design, low contrast, and larger x-height relative to other typefaces, Bergen Text is a recognizable typeface that is well-suited for branding, advertising, and packaging. Bergen Text is used for all other text excluding the logo. In total, both the Bergen Text and Melbourne typeface families have several styles, which can be used to create a natural hierarchy when writing information.
06. USING THE LOGO.
DO: GIVE THE LOGO PROPER CLEARANCE Whenever you are using the logo, remember to allow the logo proper breathing room. This ensures that the logo is not competing with any other information and remains the focal point of the brand identity. This is especially important when using the vertical and horizontal stack variations of the logo, which do not have a bounding circle surrounding the visual elements. For the primary use of the logo, the proper clearance is already defined by the bounding circle. This bounding circle is especially noticeable in the reversed black and white logo. For the logo variations where there is no bounding cirlcle, the proper clearance is equal to the size of the height of one line of the workmark. This ensures that the logo is treated with love and care, and does not affect the logo’s legibility.
DO NOT: MANIPULATE THE LOGO Much like the different flavours of The County Bounty artisanal sodas, the logo has been thoughtful designed and carefully crafted. In order to work in a variety of settings, several variations have been created and therefore, do not require any additional manipulation.
DO NOT ADD EFFECTS.
