The Logo — Primary

The Bloom Foundation logo consists of a tulip flower sprouting out of the word "Bloom." Three petals have been created on the flower to represent the 3 periods of bullying that Bloom focuses on — 1. while it happens, 2. after it happens, and 3. life beyond. This logo is to be used in places where Bloom is being officially introduced, or in larger areas of space.

The Logo — "Coat of Arms"

This variation of the Bloom logo is a company crest and emblem made of the foundation name and tagline, created to invoke a feeling of tradition, heritage, and longevity. It can be used in places where an official take on the logo is needed for a "stamp of approval," or in areas where a circular version of the logo is appropriate. Click a logo below to expand.

 
 

The Logo — Basic

This variation of the logo is miniature, basic and simple in nature, and has been made to stand out in smaller areas where the Bloom logo is needed (such as a website logo). Click a logo below to expand.

 
 

Color Palette

The color palette has been chosen to work together with black and white to create a feminine look and feel across the Bloom brand. Froly represents the warm side of the spectrum while Chetwode Blue represents the cool side of the spectrum. Givry represents the Millennial Pink trend, and Mauvelous represents a more traditional pink shade. Lighter shades of these colors can also be used to communicate the brand. Please refrain from darker tints.
