The cover sets the tone of the overall brand guide. The most popular option is to include the company logo on the cover.
This will include your client's business information and brand story.
Logo and usage
This section describes how the brand logo should be used, including size requirements and color specifications. For example, if the logo comes in wordmark and icon forms, establish clear rules of where and when each form should be used.
Decide how fonts will be used. Do you want to keep all copy in regular 12 pt? Italics only? Or absolutely not in bold?
Provide primary and secondary colors in HEX, RGB and CMYK values to ensure brand color consistency.
Your designer profile
This is the perfect spot for your short profile, which includes your contact details, experience and portfolio. Make sure your links work properly!
Include all the specific design terms used in the brand guide.
Finish strong by reiterating the look and feel of the brand. Use a straightforward approach with the company address and logo on the side, or an artistic approach with a great quote against the primary brand color. Your client should definitely have input here.
