The ADE Tone of Voice is enthusiastic, down to earth, humorous, objective, clear, informal and never self-congratulatory.
ADE’s overall message is positivity in all things as far as it is possible to reasonably be, so don’t hold back with your passion/enthusiasm as it genuinely resonates with our audience. Do not be afraid to let your sentences run. English is by nature a rhythmic language, so use that to your advantage to create an engaging flow which draws people in. Always use British English - therefore please use the correct spell check.

Do - Make sure the ADE trademarks (logo, colors or otherwise) are somehow present and sufficiently visible in your artwork.
Don’t - Use the ADE trademarks in a way that suggests any type of special endorsement (e.g. "ADE presents:..."). - Use the campaign / visual ID of years previous to ADE 2020. - Create trademarks or visuals that copy ADE’s visual identity. - Use our trademarks in a way that reflects negatively on ADE. - Do not stretch or alter any shape. - Do not change the font, font size, spacing and/or kerning.
Font We use Helvetica Neue Medium for all visual communications. The font family is included in the ADE Brand Pack.
The ADE label - Online As in previous years, the logo can also be placed on your artwork as a label if you prefer.
The label can be placed on the entire (marked) upper edge, excluding the top corners.
The ADE label - Print We’re not using the frame template this year, instead opting for the familiar ADE label. Again, the label can be placed on the entire marked top edge, excluding the corners. Note: for print works the ADE label should remain yellow.
The ADE Colors
Artworks and designs can also make use of the trademark ADE colours: black and yellow, sometimes accompanied by white and a range of grey tones.
Colour Fundamental colours for ADE are of course black and yellow. White and grey shades have their function as well. Here are the correct colour values.
Creative Logo Use
We want to support your creativity in promoting your ADE 2020 events, so instead of forcing strict templates, this year we want to try out being more flexible in our collaborations.
The following pages show some examples on how to include ADE in your artwork, banners, posters, etc - as well as some examples on what not to do. We’re curious to see your own inventiveness so don’t hesitate to deviate from our suggestions.
If you're unsure about your intended use of the ADE brand assets, feel free to reach out to us.
ADE reserves the right to reject artworks that incorporate wrongful use of the trademarks, as well as designs without any recognizable ADE presence.
