Dynamic Beams

The dynamic beams is a contemporary graphic that visually represents our clever engineering and creative construction. They can be used to create a variety of interesting shapes that add a distinctly recognisable visual element to the McConnell Dowell brand look & feel.

Construction

The Dynamic Beams have been constructed from a simple 4 x 4 square grid.

Usage

The dynamic beams may be used on most McConnell Dowell communications whereever practical.

Single page

They can appear on single page designs as a support graphic. We don’t want to overwhelm other elements on the page, meaning give them space and keep the dynamic beams away from images and other type.

Multipage documents

The Dynamic Beams don’t have to be seen on every page all over a document. On multipage documents and presentations they may appear only on section covers and the back cover for example and that’s enough.

Size

We’re flexible in how the dynamic beams can be sized depending on where they are being used. This means they can be sized appropriately to reflect the tone of the message, the type of communication and use. Whether large, cropped in tight or smaller on the edge of the page, the dynamic beams graphic can adapt to support the message.

Crop and scale

Always scale the dynamic beams in proportion, don’t stretch them or change the proportions. Only crop to reveal a full square shapes within the graphic.

Arrangement

A wide variety of arrangements can be achieved through scaling, rotating flipping and croping the dynamic beams at different sizes.

Placement

When placing the dynamic beams on a page, they lock into a corner or touch at least one edge. They may be placed at full height/width or a fraction of the page.

Halves and quarters

Use halves and quarter fractions of the page to align and size the dynamic beams when they are not full height/width.

p3 dont 1

Do not change the proportions of the dynamic beams.
 

p3 dont 2

Do not change the colours of the dynamic beams.
 

p3 dont 3

Do not add any extra squares to the dynamic beams.

 

 

p3 dont 1

Do not change or redraw the dynamic beams.
 

p3 dont 2

Don’t use odd crops. Always crop to the full dimensions of the square shapes.
 

p3 dont 3

Don’t use odd angles. Only rotate the dynamic beams by 90 degrees.

 

 

p3 dont 1

Do not use more than one dynamic beams graphic per screen/page.
 

p3 dont 2

Don’t place the dynamic beams over or behind photos. They always appear on a solid colour.
 

p3 dont 3

Don’t place the dynamic beams away from the edge. They always lock into a corner or touch at least one edge.
