Colors

Incognia's main color palette consists of four colors, two shades of green and two shades of purple.

The main attributes of the brand are reinforced by the colors. While purple is innovative and trustful, green contrasts it with transparent and approachable. They are desaturated but rich, elegant tones that work well separately as well as combined together.

The secondary palette is made up of 3 more colors, which must be only used when extra color application is needed to signal positive or negative responses. Green means positive situation, blue neutral and pink negative.

Typographic

Montserrat is brand’s only typeface. It’s a classic, readable sans serif font that works well both for headline displays as well as small body text.

Monterrat is available in many weights, but Incognia uses only Regular, Medium, and Semibold to ensure clear type treatment without too many text styles.

Typeface System

Incognia’s typeface system is based on classic and serious headline - subheadline - body text relation. Following example displays correct ratio between those elements, with addition of action button, to help you understand how the brand’s composition should work.

Typeface system should always be kept readable and consistent with basic rules of readability.

Icons Style

Iconography for Incognia brand is based on simple, outlined form, to match the overall look&feel of a logo. It should be as simple as it gets, but not simpler. Icons, similar to the logo, should be presented in one solid color, to enhance readability and simplicity.

Elements

Incognia's visual elements are powerful tools to communicate our essence and values, creating identity and differentiation in our market. Consistency in visual elements causes rapid recognition and connection with the audience.

All elements of the Incognia brand are built from circular shapes, as well as the logo, creating a visual connection between both. The simplicity and iconic nature of the circles make them highly memorable, aiding brand recognition and recall, and reinforce the solution's frictionless use concept.

Texture

The texture, exclusively developed for the brand, is modular and built on a grid divided into exact squares. Like the incognia solution that combines different signals and parameters to compose its risk assessment, different pieces create the texture.

This composition can be designed and adapted in the most different ways necessary, but always from the combination of the same shapes and keeping the square proportion

Texture elements
Each texture element represents an evidence/reason from Incognia's risk assessment engine.

Map

Location is the essence of Incognia's technology, because of this, illustrations of maps and locations are fundamental to represent the brand's differential. To make these illustrations unique brand elements, an exclusive Incognia map pattern was designed following the same parameters as the official texture.

 

Incognia Map Texture

Dividers and shapes for text

Rectangles with rounded corners can be used as boxes and strips for dividing materials and supporting text.

Stripes should always have only one rounded corner and two sides bleed out of the designs. The rounded corner must be large and if used together with the texture or map, it must be equivalent to a grid square.

The rectangles that appear complete in the materials must always have the four corners rounded and small.

Photographic resources are a fundamental part of the Incognia brand, as they bring emotion, reinforce the brand identity and capture attention. In addition, they are an important tool to make tangible the benefits of the product and the impact generated on consumers.

All photos used must be aligned with the look and positioning of the Incognia brand. In other words, in addition to being visually coherent with the brand using its colors and style, the photos must communicate the same attributes as the brand: innovative, trustworthy and approachable.

User’s photos

Incognia technology is present on the devices of more than 200 million users globally, so these users are part of different ethnicities, ages, cultures, gender identities, lifestyles and all other pluralities. The photographs used in the brand must represent this diversity and show the positive impact of frictionless usability in people's daily lives.

Negative situations, fraudsters or developers

Although most of the materials and photos present images of users benefiting from Incognia's solutions, in some cases representations of fraudsters, developers or users in bad situations are required. At these times, non-stereotyped images should be prioritized.

Advertising

The importance of consistent design in digital advertising lies in its ability to establish brand recognition, ultimately leading to higher engagement and better conversion rates.

That's why Incognia ads use a pre-established pattern for their creation. From a grid of 16 units that must be distributed between the text area and images, all layouts can be developed. The positioning of these elements can vary, but always respecting the proportions of the grid. Texts should also, whenever possible, use the standard size shown below:

Social Media

Visual consistency is crucial in social media as it helps establish a cohesive and recognizable brand identity, fosters trust and engagement among followers. That's why all posts must have the look of the brand.

In social networks, Incognia's positioning is informative, serious, but not old-fashioned or too technical. The tone of voice chapter of this guide explains more about this.

Linkedin, Twitter and Youtube are the company's official social networks and for posts with visual resources, square formats are always prioritized, as they fit on mobile and desktop devices.
