    DESIGN GUIDE

    Keep your message short and to the point. Onlookers have limited time for reading.

    Use stark, easily identifiable visuals and keep the background simple.

    Use large, readable fonts. All-caps are not recommended and be mindful of character spacing (squeezed letters or too much space between letter makes the text difficult to read).

    Give your logo the space and size it needs.

    Keep in mind that the text will be read from various distances.

    Use complementary color combinations. Some combinations work better than others. There is a mathematical formula that can help you determine which colors work well together. The following chart shows contrast ratio between selected color combinations. Score above 70 means that the selected combination is acceptable.
