Overview of Angles Brand

Name

The official name of the company is Angles. Because of the short nature of the word itself,

there is no abbreviation for the name Angles. Angles was chosen by our CEO and founder, Lisa,

because the company will be showcasing the clients best angle to the public through all PR

releases and activities. In the fitness industry, it is necessary to present, or capture, the correct angle

of an athletes body when showcasing certain supplement effects or distinct muscle lines when

using certain machinery. The slogan of the company is, Capturing all of your best Angles.

Mission

The mission of Angles is advancing the knowledge and awareness of fitness related topics

and companies through innovative marketing tactics to the best of our ability; at Angles, we hold

ourselves to a higher standard and we fully show that in our work.

Our primary focus, as mentioned above, is to serve the health, fitness, and wellness

communities by marketing all areas of the fitness spectrum: top new products, upcoming events,

new workout plans, new machinery, nutritional supplements and topics, fitness companies, etc.

We are committed to creating an organizational culture of non-traditional nature creating

innovative pieces that distinguish us from other traditional marketing firms. By this, it is meant that

employees are fully invested in each project that is placed upon them. Generally said, each

Overview of Angles Brand

Logo

A copy of our logo can be found below. The reasoning behind the logo is simple. The A in

Angles resembles an angle that can be drawn by a protractor. A visual angle, mathematically, is a

figure that is represented by two

straight lines that intersect, and is

measured in degrees, often times

with a protractor. This is exemplified

through the circular line connecting

the two sides of the angle in our

logo.

The L in Angles represents

yet another angle, a right angle. A

right angle is a ninety-degree angle

that is symbolized by a box-like

figure that connects the two sides of the angle. This is also universally known in the American

mathematical symbols. The representation of both types of angles has a hidden meaning that there

are different viewpoints to everything in life. The variety of angles in our logo is meant to enforce the

idea that Angles, the company, will find the best way to showcase our client materials without

breaking our value of truth.

Expression Rules

Outside of our books of business, our logo may only be placed on documents and/or

marketing material with approval from the Communications and Public Relations executives. It is

imperative that permission must be granted when using the logo. If permission is granted, the

individual wishing to use our logo must contact the the Communications and Public Relations

department for a ZIP file that includes our official branding requirements and logo PDF.

Once the individual has obtained the file, do not change, modify, or add any additional

elements to the logo in any way. When placing the logo on materials, it is required that the individual

does not place other items within the box that tightly squeezes around the logo, as seen below.

Furthermore, if an individual wishes to

change the size of the logo, they cannot

make it small enough so that the words

regular word document. Lastly, the logo

may be used as a watermark if the

outside individual requesting the logo

wishes.

Within our books of business, there is

room for adjustment contingent on the campaign or ad being created and manager permission.

However, outside of our own employees, permission must be granted.
