EKM Brand guidelines

Our award-winning platform has earned a reputation for quality and excellence that few can rival. Our mission and positioning, as well as our brand platform, reflect that heritage.

To help maintain the strength of the EKM identity, follow these guidelines carefully when promoting EKM.

The EKM Brand

The EKM logo is the most immediate representation of our company, our people, and our brand to the world. It is a valuable corporate asset that must be used consistently in the proper, approved forms.

There are two versions of the EKM logo - 1) Logomark and 2) Logo Glyph

Logomark

This is the main EKM logomark, this is to be used wherever possible, wherever space allows and for any print or digital material.

Logoglyph

This is the EKM Logoglyph, this is to be used in areas of limited space e.g on user interface design or as a favicon.

The EKM brand in text EKM has a strong prescence within the eCommerce industry and should ALWAYS be capitalised to reflect this.
Logo colours

The primary form for the EKM logo is the EKM Blue logo. When colour or printing prohibits this, it may be reversed out to white as long as the legibility and integrity of the logo are not diminished.

EKM Blue Logo

Hex Code - #026ac2
CMYK - C87 M58 Y0 K0
RGB - R2 G106 B194
Pantone - 2386 C

Inversed Logo

White is the prefferred logo colour on backgrounds other than white or cool grey.

Spacing considerations

The EKM logo needs adequate spacing for maximum legibility and impact. Please adhere to these spacing considerations, your best approximation should be fine but if in doubt contact the EKM marketing team.

X = Spacing between letters on full logomark. Note - Reduce the Glyph size by 10% when putting it inside of a circle.

Centering the EKM logo Please be aware of this spacing when positioning the EKM logo centrally, take into account the additional spacing toward the right of the logo or shift the logo slightly to the left to cater for the tail of the EKM E.
Minimum logo sizing

For legibility in both on screen applications, and printed collateral, the EKM logo must be sized above the minimums specified, in large format material scale the red tag logo proportionally to the piece.

Web usage

To preserve legibility on screen, the EKM logo should never be used smaller than 60px wide logomark and 30px wide logoglyph

Print usage

To preserve legibility in print material, the EKM logo should never be used smaller than 1.5inch wide logomark and 0.5inch wide logoglyph

Logo with type

On the chance the logo must be used with type the typeface that must be used is Clear Sans Regular, see below for spacing considerations.
