Internal Event Brand Guide


Have an internal event coming up and want to create a promo graphic? You're in the right place!

See below for guidance on how to create successful graphics to advertise your event.

Questions to Ask

Before beginning your project, ask yourself these questions:

  • What is the desired outcome of the piece? This will shape your primary message.
  • Who is your audience?
  • What method of communication will be most effective? Are multiple methods needed

If you aren't sure of the best way to create copy or graphics for your promo, marketing is always here to help. Please email marketing@wealth-inc.net with any questions or concerns, and we will be happy to lend a hand!

 

General Graphic and Copy Guidelines

  • All event promos need to have the 澳门水利博彩官方网站 logo. Click here to download.
    • Our color logo should be used on white or light-colored backgrounds.
    • Our white logo should be used on dark-colored backgrounds.
    • A good place for the logo is in the bottom right hand corner.
  • Images used should be clear and high-resolution. Increasing the size of a small image file will create blur and pixelation.
  • Make sure to include the location, date and time of your event.
    • Location: Be specific. Identify the room number, department, etc.
    • Date: Clearly spell out the date, including the day of the week — for example, use Monday, October 16, 20XX instead of 10/16.
    • Time: No need for unnecessary zeros (for example, use 6 p.m. instead of 6:00 p.m.).
  • Have a web address/URL to include? Omit the http://www. so that just the essential part of the URL appears. For example: wealth-inc.net or wealth-inc.net/apply.
