TailorMade Brand Board Style Guide Templates

TailorMade Brand Board Style Guide Templates

12.00

Introducing the Tailormade Collection Brand Board Style Guide Templates sized specifically for Pinterest and Instagram. Now you can take matters into your own hands with these trendy premade branding boards that you can fully edit, adapt, or mix and match. The possibilities are unlimited with these meticulously organized, user-friendly templates, and detailed user guide PDFs. These designs are meant to be multi-purpose and can be altered for any product, service, or industry type.

To assure the sharpest image when uploaded for retina screens, I have created these as high resolution templates, meaning they are larger than the size recommended. Pinterest updated their pin sizes in Fall 2017 to be a minimum of 600 pixels wide. instagram's minimum size is 1080 pixels wide for the best quality.

As a Creative Director, I have 25+ years of experience in branding, advertising, web, mobile, and interactive design services, my goal was to create this collection for small business owners that are just starting out and not quite ready for a custom branding project but still want to develop a cohesive brand identity that can be shared on social media platforms. I'm often asked to share my style guides as they are intended to jumpstart the client's brand launch process online.

The sample logos, colors, graphics, photos, etc. shown in the mockup images are not included. I have another branding kit product that includes logos if you're looking for a brand to edit and import.

  • All fonts are free for both personal and commercial use and the download links are listed in the user guides.

  • ALL DESIGN CUSTOMIZATION is done by THE PURCHASER (in Illustrator or Photoshop).

Every online platform has slightly different needs for artboard dimensions, file sizes, formats, and color specifications (RGB or HEX). We are not responsible for online viewing errors. Please ask your web designer or developer for advice if necessary.

WHEN TO USE ILLUSTRATOR VS. PHOTOSHOP:

This question comes up A LOT in our business. Choosing which format to work with depends on your end use deliverables.

Illustrator

If you’ll be producing a high resolution print deliverable out of the brand board templates, we always recommend using the Adobe Illustrator formats as the vector artwork can be infinitely scaled up and down in size with no loss of quality, resolution, or clarity.

Photoshop

If you’re only focusing on web deliverables, and won’t have a need for high resolution print deliverables, you can use Photoshop formats. As you know, Photoshop was originally developed as a tool to enhance photographs. With that in mind, you should only export out to a Photoshop file for when you are working with lower resolution pixel-based raster images for usage on web and mobile. Even though our layer groups were created with vector-based artwork, Photoshop files such as .jpg, .tif, .png are never recommended for high resolution print work, or scaling up and down in size.

  • Again, the files are not intended to work with any other software. They have not been tested in any other editing software, so we cannot answer whether they would be compatible or not.
