New brand resources, toolkits, and promotional material

ABOUT THE NEW BRAND

The WorldSkills movement is developing, and so is our brand.

In the last five years, WorldSkills has experienced a rapid growth welcoming new Members, partners and projects into the movement. Never before has there been so much interest in what we do – from skills sectors and industry, from governments and economists as well as from media and society as a whole.

Now is the time to take the next step.

The Brand Book serves as an internal guide that defines and explains what WorldSkills is all about. It is an aid for Members and stakeholders to express and communicate our brand with consistency. By maintaining contemporary, consistent and easy to understand branding we will be able to achieve the recognition that vocational, technical and service oriented education and training needs and that WorldSkills truly deserves.

WHAT IS NEW?

ESSENTIAL CHANGES TO THE GUIDELINES

LOGOTYPE

The logo will now only be in one-colour — monochrome. The monochrome logo can be applied in various combinations and colours.

COLOURS

A new contemporary palette to replace the old giving a variety of different expressions.

TYPOGRAPHY AND FONTS

Same fonts, but updated typographic guidelines, especially for headlines.

VISUAL ELEMENTS

A range of graphical elements and visuals to be used in WorldSkills materials. New templates to be supplied in PowerPoint, Word and in Photoshop format for designers. Design files will also be made available in InDesign.

IMAGERY

Updated set of photo rules and rules-of-thumb.

NAMING

The use of simply “WorldSkills” will be implemented on an international level. The Members and Competitions will be able to keep their identities if they want. Over time the ambition is to pull the movement closer together as WorldSkills grows stronger and more recognized as a brand.

The WorldSkills logo was designed by Teaho Yang, a graphic design student at Mokwon University in Korea. His design was chosen by the General Assembly in June 2000 from the entries received from a global student design competition.

WorldSkills

The design shows a hand, as expressed by five strong lines representing the youth of all countries, reaching out for new skills. The logotype has been designed to complement the symbol and is based on the competition finalist design from Kathrin Baldo and Andreas Alber of South Tyrol, Italy.

Any questions on the use of this logo can be directed to Shawna Bourke.
