Moss Motors Logo

The Moss Motors logo is referred to as “the Moss Block” and is a vital component of the Moss Motors visual identity.

Logotype

This logotype was created using a custom typeface. It has been converted to outlines, so you do not need this font for reproduction.

Moss Block Sizing & Ratio

When adjusting the size of the logo, make sure it is sized proportionally. The following ratio should be maintained: 1:.9952.

Clear Space

Clear space maintains the Moss Block’s integrity. If the minimum clear space is not applied, the logo’s impact is compromised. The clear space is determined by the width of the “M” in the Moss Block. Do not allow any graphic elements, such as copy, images, or background patterns, to infringe upon this area.

Minimum Acceptable Size

The Moss Block must always be legible and appear crisp in print, with sharp edges and a high resolution. It is important to consider the limitations of various media when sizing the Moss Block. The minimum acceptable size is 0.5 inches, 3 picas, or 12.7 millimeters in height.

Logo Integrity

In order to preserve consistency with our identity, never attempt to recreate or change the logo.

The proportions and position of the block to the logotype should never be altered. Do not skew, stretch, rotate, or violate clear space.

Logo Variations

Depending on the use case, we have some acceptable variations of the Moss logo.

Typefaces

These are the primary and secondary fonts used for Moss Motors, for web and print applications.


Lato

Primary font for online use. This includes the website and all email communications. A simple, clean font which comes in a limited variety of weights.

Helvetica Neue

Primary font for print use. Helvetica Neue rides the line between classic and modern, conservative and edgy, or even elegant and relaxed. Depending upon the design elements you include around it, it can be any or all of those things. Because of this, it’s a perfect fit for the Moss Motors brand. Many variations and weights make it highly versatile.

Garamond Premier Pro

Secondary font for print use, mainly used for body copy in Moss publications. Garamond Premier Pro was designed by Robert Slimbach on the model of the roman types of Claude Garamond and the italic types of Robert Granjon; it represents a reworking and expansion of the earlier Garamond Pro.
