Shortly after the Jarvis Media Group was born in 1999, John Jarvis designed the original logo; it was simply the word “Jarvis” set in the Adobe Anton typeface. The Jarvis logotype as we know it today was created in early 2005 by John Jarvis. He used two Google typefaces: Anton Small Caps for the “Jarvis” text, and Anton Reg as influence for the “J” mark. The design was later visually refined by Ricky Driessle (formerly known as Rick Deez, or DEEZ) — the core design lead, who helped shape the Jarvis brand from early on, and later further adjusted for balance and proportions by Thomas Jackson, during the creation of this Handbook.
Colors are one of the key aspects when it comes to brand recognition. Making sure we use the right hues (colors) is essential to that effect. Check out the following list to find the official Jarvis Media Group colors. Colors are separated into three groups. The Blues, the Grays, and Auxiliary colors. The most recognizable colors are, obviously, the Blues and Grays. The Auxiliary hues can be used for various reasons, and come in a variety of values, with some tints (added white), tones (mix with another hue), and shades (added black)
Here are just the base hues, but there’s a plethora of tints, tones, and shades available on the codepen. These keep evolving, so they don’t get documented here quite yet.

The Jarvis logotype as we know it today uses two Google typefaces: Anton Small Caps for the “Jarvis” text, and Anton Reg as influence for the “J” mark but those typefaces are reserved for the Logotype only and should not be used elsewhere.
