Logo should be white on darker backgrounds and black on lighter backgrounds.
Our logo is designed to scale to small sizes on print and screen.
Our logo is based on simple shapes. It is carefully constructed to maintain ownable characteristics while allowing for perfect legibility at any size on any application.
The logo placement depends on the type of communication and use.
Aligning partnership logos should follow clearspace rules. The separating line between logos can be created using the width space of the SMC emblem icon square.
Our primary brand colors are white and black. They are used to provide accessibility, simplicity, and consistency throughout all brand communications.
Accent blue is an important color that is unique to SMCNational and should be used sparingly for moments of attention, support, assurance, and delight at moments of interaction between a user and the brand.
Our secondary colors should be used sparingly throughout illustration, photography, and product in order to maintain meaning and potency.
It is important to follow the rules of these proportions when creating any brand communication in order to maintain brand consistency and remain accessible for all people. White plays a very important role in all brand communications and should provide balance with black. Accent Blue is only used for critical moments that warrant attention and care between SMCNational and the user. The secondary colors are only used reasonably for illustrations.

Poppins Text Bold
Poppins Text SemiBold
Poppins Text Medium
Poppins Text Regular
Poppins Text Light
It is important to maintain these type pairings. This allows for clarity, consistency, and a strong hierarchy for all communications. Medium weight should be paired with Light weight, and Bold weight should be paired with Regular weight.
Typography should either be black on light imagery or white on dark imagery. When aligned with the logo, typography and logo should be the same color.
