Core Values

Core values are the fundamental beliefs of an organization, and are the guiding principles that are applied to dictate actions and behaviours of its stakeholders.

Hiilite’s core values were strategically chosen to help its internal staff navigate the difference between good and inappropriate behaviours.

Collaboration. 

Approachable – Empowering – Respectful
We create better products by working together.​

Hiilite is a collective of creatives from various backgrounds. Whatever the task at hand, we benefit from leveraging our team’s strengths. We are informed, educated, and critiqued by our peers. We work with our clients, not for. Collaboration is essential to our growth as individuals.​

Purpose. 

Effective – Impactful – Strategic
We find meaning in all that we do.​

There are endless possibilities waiting to be explored in our field. Purpose means seeking out new avenues for growth and pursuing our interests wholeheartedly. When something seems out of reach, it is often just a question of drive.​

Positivity. 

Optimistic – Persevering – Encouraging
We have perspective.

While every day may not be our best, we still wake up each day knowing that it is a new opportunity to realize greatness. By believing in ourselves and those around us, we build each other up to push past any obstacle standing in our way.

Badassery. 

Authentic – Bold – Unconventional
We live outside the box.

Badasses inspire. They are champions of originality and individuality. It takes self-confidence and creativity to produce world-class work. The most passionate people can make the impossible happen.​

Growth. 

Ambitious – Curious – Driven
We continually develop ourselves.​

When we challenge ourselves, it forces us to rethink what we are capable of. By questioning our presumptions, being open to new perspectives, and showing humility in our strengths, we are always moving towards becoming the best version of ourselves.​

To ensure our colours remain consistent, always use the values listed here, never really on eye dropper tools or legacy assets for colour accuracy.

Icon

Wordmark

Combomark

The “Hii” Icon

The primary use of the “Hii” Icon is to serve as a visual greeting between Hiilite, our partners, and the public. Refrain from using the ‘Hii’ Icon in isolation unless its association to the Hiilite name and brand has been made clear. When in doubt, use the Combomark.

Representation on Social Channels

When representing the Hiilite brand on Social Media Channels, we ask that you use the ‘Hii’ Icon. In particular, we require that the ‘Hii’ Icon is not deconstructed and the approved mark is represented in Hiilite Orange, white, or an approved variation when applicable for promotional purposes. The approved ‘Hii’ Icon profile images are included in the logo package available for download.

 

Grouping Icons

The ‘Hii’ Icon may be used alone (when applicable) or alongside other social icons. It should be used at equal size to neighbouring icons. Be sure to maintain its shape, proportions, and provide adequate clear space between logos as defined below.

 

Clear Space

Whenever the ‘Hii’ Icon is used, it’s important no other graphic element invades its space. This ensures the Icon remains visible and impactful.

To work out the clear space; Simply transpose the highlighted element (H) around the parimeter of the mark as illustrated above.

Do’s

Maintain shape, colour and proportions

We are constantly evolving. In terms of design, this means fewer rules, which gives the brand a much larger and more vibrant range of self-expression. We do this because we not only have an audience dedicated to clients but a whole creative community. Plus, we gain more power as a result of developing new creative work.
