Reimagining the Formstack brand

At Formstack, our mission is to improve people’s lives with practical solutions to their everyday work. To help us tell this story, we’ve developed a fresh set of guidelines and a bold, clean look that better reflects our identity.

Explore our brand guidelines

From content and messaging to logos and colors, the following guidelines serve as a blueprint to help us create beautiful, streamlined, and thoughtful experiences.

Messaging

We have an exciting story to share about taking everyday tasks and turning them into remarkable business results. Everything we write is an opportunity to reinforce who we are as a brand and to help people see their part in our story.

In our messaging, we strive to communicate in a meaningful, consistent, and genuine way. We seek to be smart and informative but also human and approachable. Ultimately, we want to fill people with confidence and show them all the amazing things they can accomplish with Formstack.

Attributes

Our brand attributes are our north star. They define who we are, how we serve our customers, and how we communicate with others. From content to design, everything we put out into the world should reflect the following attributes.

Real

‘Stackers are real, down-to-earth people. We value relationships as much as results, and this is reflected in everything we do.

Ingenious

Our products are ingenious. They enable anyone, no matter their skill level, to create solutions to their everyday challenges.

Practical

We offer practical solutions to workplace problems. Our products help people digitize what matters and automate their work.

Playful

We don’t take ourselves too seriously. As ‘Stackers, we like to keep things playful and infuse some fun into our day-to-day.

Logos

Our logo was created in the concept of a tangram—a perfect metaphor for Formstack. The pieces? Our remote team members, who are spread across the globe; our customers, who come from a variety of industries; and our product, which has a versatile feature set designed to be pieced together for customized solutions. The Formstack mark represents the idea of taking differently shaped pieces and joining them together to solve simple and complex problems.

Product Icons

Our product icons help our customers find what they’re looking for in a simple, bold, and inviting way. While the marks do a good job of explaining what they are, each product is also assigned a color from our secondary color palette.

Typography

Building brand credibility requires attention to every detail, including fonts. Sofia Pro and Rubik are the fonts we use for all brand-related design materials across the organization. This dynamic duo shows reliability through consistency.

Sofia Pro Black
Sofia Pro Black—our headline and display font—helps our messaging appear bold, stylish, and confident.
Rubik Light
Rubik—our body or long-form font—is a tried-and-true typeface designed for legibility and ease of use.

Photography

Photography is a powerful tool that helps us create human connections with our products. When using photography, we want the viewer to feel like they are a fly on the wall during an interaction, not staring at an over-produced glamour shot. Photos should look natural and not forced. Our products are all about the people who use them. Finding humanity in our images helps us connect to our audience in a powerful way.

Illustration

Our illustration style mirrors the simplicity of the Formstack logo and product iconography. The human element in each illustration bridges Formstack’s products and the people who use them every day. Our illustrations must maintain a level of sophistication while providing playfulness to our content. Brand and platform illustrations use Formstack’s primary colors and slates, while product-specific illustrations employ our secondary colors.

Iconography

Our products and services are functional and so are our icons. Formstack icons should clearly suggest the primary purpose being conveyed. Icons play a major role within our brand, guiding users through the complex information displayed so they can digest quickly. Icons use Formstack slate and can go with any color background.

Drag and drop

Build no-code, online forms in minutes with a user-friendly, drag-and-drop builder.

Shapes

Practical and playful are a balancing act that we perform very well. Shapes provide that balance when used in design elements or to frame an image. Shapes can be a great tool at the brand and product level and are used in concert with product colors.

Repeating Patterns

Being loud and confident is great, but sometimes a hint of subtlety gets the job done even better. Repeating patterns using product iconography is a great way to add some playfulness without calling too much attention to ourselves. When displaying repeating patterns, we often use a larger canvas to make the repeating less obvious.
