Style principles

Brand look question mark

Using the question mark

Use the graphic route for everything that is driving an action (pushing to other services, call to action box)

Brand look photography

Using photography

Use for brand messaging and anything that isn‘t driving a direct call to action.

Photography

A CAPTURED MOMENT

Ensure the image feels like a real, human moment.

Intriguing, relatable and aspirational. It should focus on the positive rather than the negative.

Keep itSIMPLE

Ensure the image isn’t too cluttered or complicated to decipher.

Our image should be clean and distinct, even from a distance. It should be depicting a single, clear story.

A keyACCENT COLOUR

Ensure the image has a key colour that stands out.

It should focus on one vibrant colour close to the Which? colour palette, which must add vibrancy to the image.


How we look

Brand look collage

We avoid

  • Showing people in a studio environment
  • Showing unrealistic images
  • Showing people posing/smiling directly at the camera
  • Showing images with an effect such as a motion blur
  • Treating images with any kind of effect such as a colour wash or noise vignettes
  • Too much of one or multiple dominant colours
  • Putting a human face to Which? services that aren’t customer-facing
  • Being cold and austere
  • Showing anything old-fashioned or twee
  • Clichés
  • Showing anything that looks staged or set up
  • Showing imagery that’s too cluttered

Treating colour

Brand look treating colour

If you have to change an image to work with a previously set headline colour, just retouch the image so it’s closer to the colour palette.

Feel free to add vibrancy to make the colour pop. If an image is missing a dominant colour, add it in retouching, but keep it natural.
