The Concept

The Amani Coffee branding is fun and approachable, warm and friendly, earthy and clean. Amani Coffee has a close connection to the Democratic Republic of Congo, and wanted to incorporate the region and the Congolese people to the Amani brand. We were able to successfully make this connection through the use of color, messaging, patterns, and illustrations.

primary logo

This is the primary Amani Coffee logo, it should be used in most instances to help maintain consistency and brand recognition. It was designed to be simple and recognizable, while also being easily reproduced for print and digital. The “A” mark features a “coffee drip” to make up the interior of the “A” shape.

Secondary Logos

The secondary logos may be used as supplemental marks when the primary logo is already in use elsewhere on the piece, or in contextual situations where the Amani brand is already apparent or implied.

Logo Usage:
Do’s and Don’ts

Please follow these guidelines when using these brand assets to maintain brand recognition and consistency.

Minimum Clear Space

To protect the integrity of the brand, always maintain a minimum clear space around the logos. This clear space isolates the logo from other graphic elements such as other logos, copy, photography or background patterns that may divert attention.

The minimum clear space for all logos should be at least twice the cap height of the text CENTER CREATIVE ENTREPRENEURSHIP. 

do not alter logo dimensions

The dimensions of the artwork have been carefully developed and should never be altered. Do not squash, stretch, skew, rotate or otherwise manipulate the proportions or orientation of any logo. These examples show improper usage.

do not alter logo colors

The logo colors have been carefully chosen and should never be altered. Do not use gradients, transparency or tints when rendering any CCE logo.

minimum size

For maximum impact and readibiltiy, please be sure all text is clear and legible whenever using any of the Amani logos. In situations where the text will be too small to render clearly, please use either of the simple “A” marks.

FAQs

Please follow these guidelines when using these brand assets to maintain brand recognition and consistency.

Can I remake the logos with other colors or color combinations?

We would rather you didn’t. Here’s why:

Effective identity systems have both fixed and flexible pieces to ensure consistency while allowing for personalization. The more consistency we have, the more regcognizable and iconic our identity will become. This is especially important in the early days as we start to use the new logos.

Imagery and iconography are the flexible parts that can be determined by the user.
