Our brandmark acts as a distinct and recognisable signature across all of our communications.
It’s made up of the open world symbol and a wordmark. The symbol represents the nature of our brand: calm and controlled on the outside, vibrant and dynamic on the inside. The wordmark has been crafted from our Barclaycard Co font, modified to ensure maximum legibility.
We have different versions of our brandmark to ensure optimal standout on all backgrounds, media types and materials, so it’s important to make sure you use the right one.
Using our Brandmark
The official brandmark is used on white backgrounds or over light imagery.
The reversed brandmark is used in cyan or mid to dark photographic backgrounds.
Greyscale and mono
The greyscale brandmark is used in white backgrounds when the full colour printing is restricted.
Animated and sonic
The animated brandmark is used on digital platforms and the sonic brandmark is used for broadcast.
Imagery is a powerful way to tell stories as they build emotional connections between us and our audience. Our real, spontaneous and vibrant image style allows our stories to be told through photography in a unique and recognisable way.
All our imagery is shot and selected for a specific style to convey warm and inviting, familiar and recognisable, uncluttered and balanced.
Complete guidelines for the use of imagery to tell the Barclaycard story are available by contacting the Global Brand Expression team (details below).
