With the Logo Library, you acquire a dedicated library allowing you to group all your logos. This way, you no longer have to mix your logos with other asset types in your Media Library – ending up in an organizational hassle.
Setting up the Logo Library
To set up the Logo Library, enter your brand space and switch to the Library tab. Then click on the ‘New’ button on top-right>Logo Library.
Give your Logo Library a name, and upload all of the preferred logos to the Library by clicking on the ‘Upload files’ button in the middle of your screen, or by hitting the ‘New’ button on top-right > File Upload.
In case you want to modify your Logo Library Settings, simply click the settings icon in the power bar to your left to change the project name, or attach the Logo Library to another brand.
Organizing your Logo Library
Once you’ve uploaded all your logos, you can organize them in folders, again by triggering the ‘New’ button on your top-right.
Alternatively, you can (multi-)select your logos by hovering over the logo cards and ticking the box of the preferred icons in the top-left corner. A horizontal options bar will then appear on top of the screen.
From here, you can either move the selected logos to existing folders, and assign them with existing tags. Or simply create new folders or tags.
By clicking the cogwheel in the logo card, you can view and change asset information like name, pixel ratio, and color space.
The three dots on the right of the cogwheel enable you to trigger actions like downloading the logo, replacing it, sharing, and deleting it. In case you choose to share the icon, you can do so by sharing a public link. By clicking the share function, you also have the possibility to embed the logo to other websites and wikis for example.
Inviting team members is still done via the team icon in the power bar to your left-hand side.
When you click on an icon card, you’ll have the possibility to collaboratively work on it. Discover different ways to do so with the power bar on the left-hand side. Give and request feedback, set a logo’s download options, define metadata, set up asset lifecycles, or view the revision history.
In the bar on your right-hand side, you’ll find an overview of file formats already attached to the given logo asset. Upload different file formats of it right there. You’re also able to preview your logo on different backgrounds and choose your main logos. Here, a link to the colors defined in your Style Guide can be set up. Your main logos can be downloaded as a package in the consumer view of your Logo Library.
You can also relate logos to each other. Put logos with similar properties (color variations, or file format for example) together. Read more about asset relations here. Set up asset relations by uploading the respective assets, or using the asset chooser to browse the assets already existing in one of your projects.
The consumer view
When viewing the Logo Library from its frontend view (entering it via your Style Guide), all your logos will be displayed at one glance. From there, you can enter into a separate main logo view, download all of them as a package and add written descriptions to them. Once you’ve opened a logo, you’ll be able to see basic asset information like file and image size, the related assets, as well as the different file formats ready to download. Select download all to choose the file type you want to download. Only one format can be downloaded at the time. When switching to the metadata tab, all the defined metadata can be identified.
In case you want to represent your logo in your Brand Portal as well, there are two ways to do so. First, you can set up a logo section in your Style Guide and upload your logos by either using the ‘Image’ or ‘Image Grid’ block. Second, you’re able to link the Logo Library to your Brand Portal on top of your screen as shown in the GIF below.
