The Mind Matters brand mark is composed of contrasting organic and geometric shapes that are responsible for the broader brand story.
Colors are extremely emotive. Our extensive color palette composed of 20 different colors provides us the opportunity to create unique combinations - which mimics how, even though people might be diagnosed with the same mental disorder, they all have unique experiences.
In order to combine the colors effectively, the 20 colors were separated into 3 groups. While working on a product, pick only one color from each group.
Do not repeat colors from the same group.

Although we only use one typeface, the fluidity and uniqueness of emotions are expressed by the different type treatments that make up our brand.
Wave treatment can be used for quick announcements and self-care reminders, the text should always be centered. When creating the wave treatment, make sure to set it to 10% horizontal blend and 0% distortion.
Outlined text is used when talking about emotions, moods, and mental disorders.
When text size is set to 40pt, outline width should be set to 1pt. Text should always be lowercase.
The goal of the conference's key visuals is meant to represent the fluidity of emotions and how they are constantly changing.
There should be a defining line across any visual that includes blobs. This will act as a horizon line to show depth in the work. The interacting blob should be partially behind the horizon line and overlapping in the front as shown to the right.
There is no use of photography in any promotional graphics.
A post format was created to display different types of information for social media posting.
With exception to topic highlights, all text should be placed on solid backgrounds to ensure the legibility of important information.
Each type of social posts has a corresponding animation style.
Information/Speaker posts will show the blob with turbulent motion in within its environment.
Reminder posts will animate into the image by appearing to fill in space similar to the way water does in a cup, except top to bottom.
Topic Highlight posts are personalized to the word. For example, the word anxiety flashes to simulate the overwhelmingness of what's going on. The blob should move as it does in all other enviorments.
