Toastmasters International Branding Guidelines

Simple Steps to Toastmasters Branding​

Branding is one of the easiest concepts to understand, yet it’s one of the hardest to execute. Branding is our most valuable asset, and it is more than just a logo. It is our identity and our personality. It is key to delivering the Toastmasters brand consistently across all channels, both online and offline. We’ll aim to provide comprehensive instructions on how to interpret our Toastmasters Brand Guidelines.​

Basic Principles​

Brand guidelines are a vital tool to help ensure brand consistency. Without guidance, our Toastmasters brands can become distorted over time, and potentially damage our brand value and reputation.

The Benefits of Using the Toastmasters Brand

The brand will communicate a consistent look and message, in turn increasing understanding and global awareness of Toastmasters International. It motivates prospective members to join, making district and club objectives easier to achieve. It increases pride in being a member of Toastmasters.​

Logos​

The Toastmasters International logo is an integral piece of our visual identity. Its correct and
consistent application accelerates engagement, raises our credibility and improves brand recall.​

  • It is essential to follow some simple rules when using the Toastmasters logo.​
  • It should not be distorted in any way​
  • Ensure there is sufficient space around the logo​
  • It should not be too close to the text or the edge of the page​
  • It should be clearly visible for print and web scenarios.​
  • It can be placed on top of a photograph as long as there is a contrast between the image and the logo.​
  • It must not be placed on top of a solid block of color that is not one of the four Toastmaster brand colors.​
  • Which logo to use where and when?​

Typefaces

~ Heading Typefaces ~

To help emphasize your message we recommend that you use Monserrat for Headlines and subheads.​

​We would recommend you use the Bold and Light style for main and subheadings rather than thin,
extra light, extra bold and black as these are less legible to read and more difficult to use.​

Do not use all capital letters. Rather, you should use a combination of
Upper and Lower case as it helps people read your message.​​

Montserrat Thin Font
Montserrat Bold Font

~ Body Text Typefaces ~

For third-level headings and body copy we recommend you use Sans Source Pro.​

Both these fonts — Montserrat and Source Sans Pro — are free Google fonts which are web compatible​​​.

Images

Images are an integral part of our brand guidelines; images are more than simple visuals —
they convey emotion, and they can build trust and confidence over time and repeated exposure.​

​They are an opportunity for us to visually communicate with our potential members and existing members,
they show who you are, why we should be trusted and how we will make their lives simpler and better.​

​When choosing images make use of interesting perspectives that will draw the eye.​

​Always make sure your images are chosen from a reputable source,
and you have checked the rights to use an image.​

​Use images that are reflective of your club or members.​
