Some of the information presented by Gydeline is complex. In order to make is simple we use clear, consistent design across a variety of charts, diagrams and drawings.
2. Charts & Diagrams
3. Lines & Borders
Our preference is to not use lines and borders. When they are required they are in simple, muted brand colours and appropriate to the context.
Backgrounds are sometimes useful to give a context or framework to a diagram. We have a variety of grids that are used as backgrounds.
5. User Avatars
The use of photography reflects the rest of the brand: clean and simple. Images that contain a single main subject and not too much distraction for the eye.
Images often use a Gydeline colour wash and include the Gydeline logo in the footer.
Text is used on images to convey quotes or messages. Text is large and readable with a simple, precise message.
The use of alternative colours at the start of words gives extra emphasis to key acronyms.
