About our brand

Understanding the brand identity and using it correctly and consistently will help amplify our awareness and impact.

The Smith for WV & WV Can’t Wait (S4WV & WVCW respectively) are two brand marks, sharing the same visual identity but with different messages. Our brand is expressed not just through our new graphic identity, but also through our behavior, messaging, communications, events, and all touch points of connection with our communities.

By paying special attention to all the ways we express the S4WV & WVCW brands, we share in being part of the movement, its story – our story – and build our brand value. Maintaining this today will help ensure clear communication as we continue towards the 2020 election.

Color combos

Any two colors can be combined. We recommended that the selected two colors have enough contrast from one another. For example, yellow and orange may not have a great deal of contrast, whereas red and blue does. The darker, more vibrant color is applied to the word banners, the lighter one to the state’s shape.
