Logos and Usage

The Quiq logo speaks to the brand’s identity, designed to communicate speed with the movement of the blue color gradient and uppercase “Q” resembling a ticking clock. The tail of the “Q”/hand of the clock pictures a leaf, attributing the cannabis plant and our dedication to sustainable practices.

The Quiq logo only appears in the following combinations:

Cyan to Cobalt Gradient:

It’s preferred that this version is used whenever possible. Should be used every time the logo is applied upon light-colored backgrounds.

QUIQ LOGO 2019

White to Gray Gradient:

May be used on dark-colored backgrounds to improve contrast and legibility.

QUIQ LOGO 2019-BW

Solid White:

For use on backgrounds where neither of our gradated logos provide enough contrast.

Improper Logo Usage:

  • Use the horizontal logo in a vertical way
  • Stretch or compress the logo
  • Change the logo font

Fonts

Implementing a consistent typeface encourages brand recognition and forwards our identity, as this typography was chosen to reflect Quiq’s attributes of precision, establishment, and authority.

Primary Fonts:

There are two primary fonts; however, other styles of Gotham (book, medium, light) can be used to create greater difference in hierarchy when used in approved manners. This typeface is preferred on educational marketing collateral and emphatic announcements.

  • Gotham Bold Usage: Headlines and first captions
  • ITC Avant Garde Gothic Book Usage: Sub-headlines and slogan
  • Century Gothic Usage: Body copy

Secondary Fonts:

To complement the Quiq primary fonts, three styles of ITC Avant Garde Gothic type may be used in approved manners. More casual and playful, this typeface is preferred on lifestyle-focused marketing collateral.

  • Book Usage: Headlines and first captions
  • Medium Usage: Sub-headlines and slogan
  • Bold Usage: Body copy

Font Sources:

All fonts are available online for purchase and/or download.

Colors

Consistent application of color plays an imperative role in expressing a distinct brand identity. This section describes our hierarchy of usage and how to apply and combine the colors.

Primary Palette:

Quiq’s primary color palette should be used on the majority of marketing collateral as it symbolizes various brand characteristics and reflects the logo.

Secondary Palette:

Quiq’s secondary color palette should be used as accents to support the primary palette as it symbolizes additional company attributes and mirrors elements of product packaging.

Improper Use:

Please never use our color palettes in the following manners:

  • Recolor logo with any colors except those specified under Logo Usage
  • Overuse secondary palette in graphics; this should be an accent color
  • Incorporate large areas of color unnecessarily; embrace reasonable white space when designing.

Supporting Elements

Icons

Colorado compliance regulations state that all THC-infused products must be labeled with the official THC warning icon on both packaging and, for edibles, each individual piece. The exclamation mark, “THC” and diamond icon must be emphasized in red and the following text, in black, may be no smaller than 6 pt. font. When needed, do not exclude nor alter this icon per legal requirements.

Quiq_Contains_THC

Gradient Tick Marks

Similar to the tick marks seen in the logo’s uppercase “Q”, this element may be used on packaging and graphics to highlight the brand’s relation to time and speed. Both the primary and secondary color palettes may be applied to this detail, and either a gradient or diminishing opacity should be present.

QUIQ Ticks

Medically Correct Logo

Either of the two Medically Correct logo formats may be applied to assets to improve parent company recognition, and to strengthen Quiq’s legitimacy.
