Silverstripe CMS style guide

Here are the assets and guidance for applying the Silverstripe CMS brand.


The Silverstripe CMS symbol forms part of the logo but can also be used in isolation to represent the Silverstripe CMS. The symbol can be presented in Bright Blue on white/light grey or in white on Dark Blue, or imagery with sufficient contrast.


The Silverstripe CMS logo is composed of a simple, elegant symbol, and a clear, bold wordmark. The horizontal logo is the primary format and should be used in most instances. The logo can be presented in full colour on white or in white on Dark Blue, or on imagery with sufficient contrast.

The minimum clear space allowance can be ascertained by the width of the S from the wordmark (as pictured). Do not place any graphics, illustrative elements or type, closer to the logo than indicated here. Do not reproduce the horizontal logo any smaller than 30mm on all printed material and 120 pixels on all online material. Do not reproduce the stacked logo any smaller than 20mm on all printed material and 80 pixels on all online material.


The bold blue and grey colour palette is an integral part of the Silverstripe CMS brand personality. White should be used liberally to keep the overall tone light, with more bold colours used to support this. Following these colour definitions will ensure there is consistency across all forms of media. RGB and Hex/HTML are used for online collateral which will appear on screen/digital devices. Pantone and CMYK are used for printed collateral.

The Silverstripe CMS interface font is Inter, freely available via Google Fonts. Inter is a variable font carefully crafted & designed for computer screens. It features a tall x-height to aid in readability of mixed-case and lower-case text. Several OpenType features are provided as well, like contextual alternates that adjusts punctuation depending on the shape of surrounding glyphs, slashed zero for when you need to disambiguate "0" from "o", tabular numbers, etc.


The weighting of the Silverstripe CMS logo and the partner logo should appear visually similar, with the Silverstripe CMS logo ideally sitting to the left of the partner logo. Both logos should be close to equal size, so the horizontal or stacked version of the Silverstripe CMS logo should be chosen based on the shape of the partner logo.

Things to avoid

To maintain the consistency of the Silverstripe CMS brand, it is important to not recreate or reinterpret the logo. Ensure that clear space rules are kept, and that there is a sufficient contrast between logo colour and background.
