This document contemplates the rules that must be followed to include a brand’s logo, as well as the different visual elements that make it up.
The main objective is to guarantee the correct application of the logo and its symbology, and the consistency of its expression in all types of media, both graphic, physical, audiovisual, or interactive.

Isotype

The isotype is the symbolic or iconic part of a logo. That is, the “icon” or “drawing.” It is used to represent a logo in a simplified way.
At a glance, the isotype reminds you of the brand, identifies it. You have to consider that in new brands you need more time to enter the minds of users, but then, it works very well independently and is very visual and powerful.
