The Saddle Creek signature is the centerpiece of our brand identity and represents our competency, reliability and flexibility. It’s imperative that it is used correctly wherever it appears.
The signature consists of our “Agile S” symbol combined with a distinctive logotype. Whenever possible the signature should be used in its primary, horizontal format. On rare occasions, insufficient space or visibility requires the secondary vertical version to be used.
It is best to use the complete signature when promoting the brand, however, the Agile S may stand alone on products or apparel if applied tastefully according to the brand guidelines.
NOTE: 2-color and single color variations are available. Always choose the format that gives the best visibility.
“Whatever It Takes!” is our motto and the driving force behind our customer service philosophy. The mottoline is a single line of text set in DIN Bold Italic, in PMS 356.
In design, elements such as photographs, graphics, text, and other logos can compete for attention. To allow for maximum visibility, it is important to maintain clear space by eliminating distractions around the signature.
Any background inside the clear space should be free of distracting patterns, textures, typography, or any other graphic elements. If the signature is used directly on a photographic image or illustration, the clear space area must provide good contrast between the background and the identifiers, and be even in tone or texture.
In the examples to the right, clear space is defined by the height of the lower-case “E”.
The 2-color signature will not reproduce well in all applications. In these cases, it’s necessary to use one of the alternate color formats on this page. Always use the appropriate format that gives the best quality. Some general examples for color usage include:
Using the identifiers carefully and consistently will enable Saddle Creek to be more quickly recognized wherever they are placed. For that reason, it is required that only approved digital files be used. Never attempt to scan or re-create the identity elements.

Color plays a prominent role to help quickly identify our design system in communications. The colors in these palettes are the only ones that may be used.
The primary color palette consists of the two signature colors. For all two-color printed communication, use this format. Screen tints of these two colors may be used to create distinction between elements.
