How to properly use Simple's logo.

Simple Logo Kit

You can find our RGB and CMYK logo assets in color, white, and dark.

Hello Guilloche

Our logo is rooted in the concept that technology and automation can be used to create beauty and function simultaneously.

Clear Space

The Simple mark should always be surrounded by a minimum amount of empty space. For the standard mark, the minimum clear space is the full height of the Guilloche surrounding the four sides (as shown). Please note that this is a minimum – feel free to add more space.

Color Variations

The different color applications of our logos are best used in specific environments. Whether it's a color background, photography, grayscale, or just good old-fashioned white, we've got you covered.

Minimum Sizing

Follow these guidelines to ensure that our logo remains legible when its small.

Incorrect Logo Usage

Here are a few things to avoid when placing the full version of our logo.

White is at the basis of all we do, punctuated with our bright, cheerful blue. These are the colors that users are most often exposed to while interacting with Simple as a product, be it in our packaging, on the marketing site, or in the app. They should be considered the primary go-to when creating Simple-branded materials.

Voice, Tone, and Style

Voice, tone, style, and you.

Tons of people at Simple write things for us, either under their own name, as “the Team at Simple,” or in our brand voice. It’s an important job, and people have always done it with great craft, curiosity, efficacy, and empathy.

Our customers feel like the things we write were written by actual, likable humans. That’s fundamental to our product, customer experience, and brand.

To that end, these guidelines aren’t meant to be rigid rules to govern exactly how to write in any given situation. We just want to offer clear definitions for what voice, tone, and style actually are, and give you some ideas about how to use them to express yourself in ways that delight, inform, and inspire your reader.
