Guidelines for Design

 

Branding is the process of taking the soul of an organization and making it resonate all who interact with it. A strong brand knows itself well. It sticks to its principles and priorities. It doesn’t change its own appearance or narrative; regardless of what others in the space may be doing or saying.

The DataKitchen brand is inspired by its founders who have always envision a world where data professionals and their teams are routinely celebrated as high-performing contributors in their organizations because they successfully deliver innovative, high quality, on-demand insight that drives strategic decision-making. That’s why we use the terms Empathetic, Battle-Scarred, Knowing, Encouraging, and Authentic to help define where its soul comes from.

The following guidelines take the attitude, attributes, and personality of DataKitchen and show you how to use the fundamental design components to express the DataKitchen brand.

LOGOs

Horizontal, Vertical

LOGO

Construction

The integration of the “D” and “K” are the essence of the DataKichen visual language. Never change the color or proportional relationship from the icon to the DataKitchen name.

LOGO

Clearspace and Minimum Size

Clearspace is the necessary area around the logo to give it room to be recognized as its own entity, uncluttered by type or other graphics. It is measured by the height of the uppercase“D” of “DataKitchen.” The same clearspace rules apply to the horizontal and vertical logos.

Minimum size is dictated by readability of the logo when reduced for use in limited space. For the vertical logo minimum size is when “DataKitchen” is at least 0.5 inch wide. For horizontal logo the minimum size is when “DataKitchen” is at least 0.4 inch wide.

Vision:

We envision a world where every data analytics professional and his or her team no longer feels powerless or frustrated by failed and painfully-slow projects, but instead are excited and energized by their ability to deliver high-quality, on-demand insight with DataOps. 

Mission:

To provide the software, service, and knowledge that enables every data analytics team to successfully implement DataOps.

Big World Change:

While most companies strive to use data to drive their organizations forward, most data analytic projects fall short of expectation or fail altogether. Critical business decisions remain uninformed by meaningful data insights. In fact, 87% of data projects never make it into production. 

 Not surprisingly, the people who are responsible for these data projects constantly feel discouraged and frustrated. This is what DataKitchen is determined to change.

Who Do We Work For:

Enterprise data teams that map to DataKitchen’s Ideal Customer Profile (ICP).  They manage critical data but cannot meet the increasing demand for new analytics and continually face  embarrassing and costly data errors. 

Target personas are:

  1. Chief Data/Analytic Officers,
  2. Directors of Data Engineering/Strategy/Architecture/Enablement
  3. Directors of Data Science.
