The Cabify Usecase 2/8

19.07.2018

Ever since we started to work on the strategical and visual


redefinition of the company, we’ve been using a digital platform,
allowing us to organize our brand assets, and share them with
employees and external agencies alike. That platform is Frontify.

If I had to explain our company in 85 characters, I'd say that Cabify is a


transportation app, with a presence in Latin America, Spain, and Portugal.
Who am I? I'm Modesto García, a Global Brand Guardian working in the
Cabify Brand Department, and I’m going to tell you the story about the
Cabify rebranding.

Now let me take you back in time, back to when Cabify had only a few
assets: one logo, one color palette, one typography, and not much more
than that. These assets were organized in a small PDF including the very
basics – together with a Google Drive folder. As you might have guessed,
this setup had us facing some real issues when it came to sharing updates
with users in external agencies and other departments. On top of that, we
had to keep chasing them until they eventually downloaded the final
version – eliminating the old ones.

Cabify was getting bigger, and fast, and so were its assets (icons,
secondary colors, etc.). The way we were operating was clearly
unsustainable. With the exponential growth in mind, the answer was clear:
we needed to get a digital platform that could scale. That’s when we found
Frontify – easy-to-use software that could solve our demands immediately.

A brand is a living entity, it evolves, and it needs continuous updates.


Unexpected needs show up daily, forcing us to build new brand guidelines
or modify the existing ones on a regular basis. Therefore, the statics of
today’s PDFs make them outdated. An interactive, living platform is vital.
With it, every little change in logos, color palettes, or any other brand asset
is visible to everyone who works with the brand straight away. With
Frontify, the old PDF guidelines disappeared. And now? Our brand will
always be consistent, centralized, and up to date.

Let me show you how Cabify built its beautiful brand book using the
different functionalities that Frontify can offer.

1. Cover page

One of Frontify’s latest updates allows you to create an attractive front


page, redirecting you to the different content of your brand world using
videos, images or text. You can create your modules according to your
personal liking. This allows for getting an excellent first impression of your
brand. It is much more than just a content list.

2. The layout

You can customize the content


according to our needs. Not only
the menu and the main blocks but
also the sidebar menu and its
different parts.

3. First content block (images and texts)

Here you can see other example


created with these basic modules.

For the logo, for example, we use


the modules rich text and image.

You can also use the image grid


module to show incorrect usage of
your logo. You can display this in two,
three or four columns.

4. Adding attachments

You can attach the assets directly to the image. Or add a content block with some
attachments.

5. Colors

Frontify allows you to show color palettes. You will find a module prepared to
include the different color systems such as HEX, CMYK, RGB, and Pantone.

You can display them as drops, list or with cards.

6. Typography

You have a particular module for the typography; everything is ready – add
fonts from Google Fonts, or even from your server.

7. Audiovisual

In our audiovisual guidelines, the


video module was especially
useful. You have the option to play
them automatically or looping it. In
this module, you can also add
attachments to the third parties,
for people to download a GIF logo.

8. Media Library

Another functionality is the Media Library, which allows you to organize


visual assets with tags. For instance, we have created a collection in our
Media Library for our stock pictures. This way, we have access to our very
best photos, with different tags, users, drivers or companies (our three
target audiences).

9. Other content blocks

Those are the main modules, but there are many more, such as icons,
annotations, divider, tables, and checklists. The list goes on.

10. Future features

The good thing about Frontify is that it's always reinventing itself. They're
continually working on new features to make sure your brand always gets
the best treatment.

When we started using Frontify, we had already considered many other


digital platforms to solve the problem we were facing. But the great thing
about Frontify is that it's a platform which is 100% focused on your brand.
Frontify always has new updates that solve all the needs that designers,
agencies or other companies might have.

For example, lately, they introduced the multi-language option and the
Workflow, where you can easily give and receive feedback. Or the Pattern
Library, where the developers and UX designers can synchronize their
repository with Frontify and work more consistently.

Our brand's future lives in Frontify, and we're happy that we can develop
it in an environment that profit both us, our external stakeholders, and our
brand.
