The Verbal Identity

The brand uses raw, honest and transparent commercial messages, which instantly set a well defined tone of voice.

The only version of the company’s name is NSSG.

Always write the name with capital letters if possible, since it’s an abbreviation of North Star Security Group.

The name was connected and still is within history enthusiasts to the role that the North Star (Polaris) had for the sea crews before the compass was invented. Their entire guiding system was based on the North Star’s location on the sky and, in comparison to other points on the sky used for measurement, they knew how to stir the vessels to reach their destination. Its importance grew as during challenging times, cloudy weather or light storms, it was the only star that had the light strong enough to still offer guidance for the sea travelers.

This fits perfectly with NSSG’s promises: we do operate where others can’t and we do operate in the most challenging environments and situations.

The tagline is clear and empowering.

We operate where others can’t.

Pattern System

Media-neutral but digital at
heart, the pattern enables consistent staging of the brand across all customer touchpoints.

Pattern Concept

Rooted in military dashbord layouts and symbolism, the pattern conveys total transparency, limitless knowledge and extreme security. It represents detailed analysis, which highlights the company’s promise and values.

Technical Accuracy

NSSG pays close attention to the technical aspect of the brand as well. In doing so, every bit of information is accurate and relevant to the military/security industry.

When creating a pattern for any NSSG material that contains a set of information and codes, the list below will be used as the only reference.

Pattern Applications

The pattern is highly flexible and customizable, making it easy to apply to a wide variety of materials and formats. It can be applied to plain backgrounds as well as photographs. Additionally, the pattern is able to accommodate text or to perform on its own.

When the pattern is combined with text it’s safe to refrain from using any extra, unnecessary information as part of the pattern, to avoid a busy and confusing composition.

Grid System

The dynamic grid system contributes to the brand’s expression capability.

Divisions of three

The NSSG grid system is built on the number 3 and its multipliers. Thus, each static workspace will be divided horizontally or vertically in 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, and so on. This simple and easy to apply rule will create consistency throughout the NSSG universe.
3 x 6 grid
12 x 3 grid
6 x 1 grid
6 x 9 grid

Gutters and margins

The rule for building proper gutters and margins follows the same concept of working with the number 3 and its multipliers. Whenever margins and gutters need to be applied, the grid will be built inside the live area.
3 x 6 grid / 3 unit margin
12 x 3 grid / 6 unit margin
3 x 1 grid / 3 unit margin / 1 unit gutter
6 x 3 grid / 6 unit margin / 3 unit gutter

Grid Application

The NSSG grid system has to be applied to each and every static material, both printed and digital. Images and texts have to be aligned to the grid, while the pattern can be freely crafted and applied, without constraints.
6 x 12 grid / 6 unit margin / 3 unit gutter
3 x 1 grid / 6 unit margin / 6 unit gutter
1 x 1 grid / 9 x 6 unit margin
Layout System

The NSSG layout offers flexibility in combining text, imagery and patterns in a consistent manner.

Layout Structure

Layouts can feature up to three horizontal subdivisions, which are always straight, horizontal and bled to the edge. The subdivisions’ size and relation to one another is flexible, but will be based on the 3x grid.

Layout applications

Photography and text can be freely combined in any context and layout type, as long as the displayed information remains readable.
