Brand guidelines

This page will give you guidance on how to design things with that characteristic Upsales feel. For more in depth guides, visit the design guidelines page.

Colours

Upsales uses a well balanced colour palette. We use #money green as our foundation, and then use other colours to highlight different graphics and sections. The colours are divided in different sections which uses the tone on tone principle.

Overview

HEX colours are used for screens, CMYK and PMS colours are used for print. Please note that the outcome of CMYK and PMS colours may vary on different printers, papers and techniques. Make sure you do test prints to determine the colour outcome before producing printed material.

Primary colours

Our primary colours are #money green, black, gray and white.

Money green is our main action color in our products and is the main color of the brand.

Money green light is our secondary action color and is also used for our success state.

Black is our headline colour

Grey 11 is for body text

Grey 1-3 can be used for neutral backgrounds

White is our main background colour.

Colour guidance

Here are a few examples of how we use colours and how not to use them.
✔ Use Money Green as Main Hero Background.
✔ Legibility: think about the contrasts.
✔ Use light colours as video Background.
✗ Never use secondary colours as Main Hero Background.
✗ Legibility: think about the contrasts.
✗ Don't use full colour as video Background

Typography

Inter is Upsales primary brand typeface. To ensure consistency and legibility it is used in all brand material, communications and product interfaces. At this moment in time we use three weights of Inter; Regular 400, Medium 500 and Semi-bold 600. These three weights gives a good coverage when it comes to typographic hierarchies. However - in special cases, if really needed - Inter is available in a total of 9 font weights.

Overview

Inter is an open-source typeface carefully crafted & designed for computer screens. It features a tall x-height to aid in readability of mixed-case and lower-case text and several OpenType features. Roboto Mono, a monospaced member of Google's Roboto family is also optimised for readability on screens and can be used for captions and small labels to create a more dynamic look.

Typography guidelines

Here are some general guidelines for how we use text. Depending on the text size, we have listed a couple of approaches below.

This headline is 2 times larger than the subheadline

This subheadline is 1.5 times larger than the body text

This is a standard body text. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur.

Visuals

A big part of our brand identity are product visualisations. It helps us explain what we do and where we aim; visuals can show the whole or one part of the product - as it is today or as we imagine a future part or feature will look like. It can also be entire product demos, such as screen recordings of a user journey.

Overview

As with all other parts of our brand identity, consistency is important. This section show how we use visuals today and how to create new ones by following a few simple guidelines.

Guide

Visualisations can be either stills or animations/recordings. The same guidelines applies. Visually focus on the feature/part of the product that is mentioned - either using a top down (vertically & horizontally centered), zoomed ("full screen"), cropped, or device perspective.
When using the top down or cropped perspective, select a base colour (this colour should be on the bright spectrum) and place a surface on top of it. The surface should have a soft drop shadow to elevate and differentiate it from the base.
