Quantum Brand Identity

The intent of the BrandBuilder site is to guide you in the creation of visually consistent marketing materials that will help build a strong brand relationship with our customers. Adherence to brand standards also ensures we maintain legal ownership of our logos, names and marks.

Brand Overview

The Quantum brand is much more than simply our logo. It’s also the visual and verbal vocabulary of words, images, icons, and colors with which we communicate. Ultimately, our brand is the sum of the emotions and attitudes our customers associate with Quantum—driven by every interaction they experience with us.

Clearly and consistently expressing Quantum’s unique image at every touch point with our audiences is the essence of building a strong brand. It’s what helps make Quantum stand out in a crowded, competitive marketplace.

Add a copyright notice and legal credit lines to the end of all Quantum communications. This notice safeguards Quantum's legal right to protect its communications and trademarks from infringement. Constructing credit lines is not difficult, since they follow a standard format.

  1. Add the copyright statement, which is always the same except for the year:
    © 2022 Quantum Corporation. All rights reserved.
    Use one space after the © symbol, and note capitalization.

  2. Add legal credit lines listing trademarks used within your document. Legal credit lines always begin with:
    Quantum and the Quantum logo are registered trademarks of Quantum Corporation and its affiliates in the United States and/or other countries. All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

  3. Add other trademarks used in your document, in alphabetical order.
    If other registered trademarks have been used within your document, add them alphabetically within the first sentence from #2; for example:
    Quantum, the Quantum logo, DXi, Scalar and StorNext are registered trademarks of Quantum Corporation and its affiliates in the United States and/or other countries. All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners.
    If regular trademarks (not registered trademarks) are added to the list, change "are registered trademarks" to "are either registered trademarks or trademarks."

  4. If you have used any third-party product names in your document, add the third-party disclaimer.
    Products mentioned herein are for identification purposes only and may be registered trademarks or trademarks of their respective companies. All other brand names or trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

  5. Other legal statements may be required, depending on your specific document. Your Quantum contact can advise you if these statements are needed. For example:
    Quantum specifications are subject to change.

Trademark Guidelines

When creating marketing and corporate communications for Quantum, use the appropriate trademark symbols for Quantum products. A list of current Quantum trademarks is also included below. Keep in mind that this list changes as new trademarks are added; check with your Quantum contact if you are unsure of a trademark's status.

USAGE GUIDELINES

Use the appropriate trademark symbols in text. Add a ™ or ® symbol, as appropriate (see the Current Quantum Trademarks list), after a trademark the first time it appears in the body copy or caption. On the web, a ™ or ® symbol should follow the first reference of a trademark in the body copy on every page.

Add a legal notice (also known as "credit lines" or "mouse type") at the end of your document. Include the appropriate legal notice that lists the trademarks you have used in your document. See Copyright Information and Credit Lines in this guide for more information about how to construct the legal notice correctly. A sample legal notice follows:

© 2022 Quantum Corporation. All rights reserved. Quantum, the Quantum logo, and all other logos are registered trademarks of Quantum Corporation or of their respective owners.

Use trademarks only as adjectives and never in the plural or possessive.

A trademark is always an adjective, not a noun or a verb. The noun that the trademark describes should follow it. For example, use "DLT® drives." And because trademarks are adjectives, they cannot be plural or possessive; for example, do not use "DLTs" or "the DLT's high performance."

Use correct spelling and capitalization.

Do not modify a trademark's spelling; when in doubt, see the trademark list or ask your Quantum contact for the mark's correct spelling. The same holds true for capitalization. Use trademarks and brand names only as they were intended to be used. In other words, don't use a trademark or brand name in any way in which it is not directly describing the product.

Acknowledge third-party trademarks at the end of your credit lines.

If you mention any third-party trademarks in your communications piece, add the following sentences at the end of your credit lines. See also Copyright Information and Credit Lines.

Products mentioned herein are for identification purposes only and may be registered trademarks or trademarks of their respective companies. All other brand names or trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

DLTtape Specific Trademark Guidelines

The tape cartridge media, the system of drive and media together, the technology and platform, and the drives in a non-model specific sense are all called DLT, and follow the rules for correct use of trade marks and other marks. The lone exception is when identifying a specific model of drive, such as a DLT-V4 or DLT-S4, which takes no trade marks.

When describing the company do not use a ® symbol next to Quantum.

Logos

Quantum Logo

Our most visible and recognizable symbol, the Quantum logo is the primary identification of our company and products. Our logo serves as the cornerstone of every visual communication we produce.

Never alter the Quantum logo.

The Quantum logo must be used on literature, advertising, technical documents, corporate signs, stationery, sales presentations, or any other promotional communications as the official brand symbol.

The Quantum logotype, the word Quantum, and other trademarks are valuable assets of Quantum Corporation. Before using our trademarks or logos, please consult our copyright and trademark guidelines.

The Quantum Logo

kitLogo_01.gif
The logo should appear in Quantum Blue, PMS 2945, whenever possible. The logo can be printed in black on a white or light-colored background or reversed to white out of a black or dark-colored background.

To obtain the official Quantum logo files, please contact creative@quantum.com

Quantum employees may also visit OnQ.quantum.com (while logged into the VPN), and navigate to the Global Marketing page > Visual Identity section to download the Quantum logo files.

About Filetypes

FILES FOR PRINT:

When producing documents where the logo will be printed with a spot color, use the spot PMS EPS file. For one-color applications, use the black EPS file. For four-color process documents, use the CMYK EPS file.

FILES FOR WEB:

Use the provided GIF or JPEG files for web. If you need to resize the logo for an onscreen application, always start with a larger file and reduce it.

FILES FOR PPT (POWERPOINT):

Use the provided PNG files with transparency for presentations and digital video. If you need to resize the logo for an onscreen application, always start with a larger file and reduce it.

Clearspace

kitLogo_02.gif

When using the Quantum logotype always keep the indicated area free of type, photos, illustrations, and other graphic elements.The same clearspace minimum applies when the Quantum logotype is reversed.

Minimum Size 

Qlogo-min-size.jpg

The standard logo size has a width of 1.5 inches (38mm). When used on printed materials, the logotype may not appear smaller than the minimum size of 1 inch, or 25mm, as shown.

The logotype may need to be larger to ensure readability for onscreen applications. Always check artwork when it is being produced at small sizes to ensure clarity, accuracy, and legibility. Pay particular attention to the quality of the registration mark. When the logo is at minimum size in either print or online formats, please omit the symbol as the lack of legibility at such as small size makes it resemble a period rather than a mark.

Incorrect Usage

In addition to respecting clearspace and minimum size requirements, always avoid these other incorrect logotype treatments.

ABOUT USING KEYLINE BOXES WITH THE QUANTUM LOGO:

In specific instances, such as on brochure covers, the logotype may be enclosed in a filled box. The box must not violate the logotype clearspace requirements, shown above.

Please contact our Creative team directly if you have questions or need support.

Quantum Email Signature

Below is a sample of how the email signature should appear:

Installing Signature Files

OUTLOOK 365 (For PC)

You should have the new email signature available to you inside of Outlook. (If you are unable to locate the signature in your Outlook drop-down, you may alternatively download the file here and customize it from there). In Outlook select “New Email” and the signature option will appear in the tool bar. Open the signatures panel in Outlook, select “Signatures…”, select “Corporate Signature 2021” and you will be able to personalize it in the editor pane. Be sure to select this signature in the “Choose Default Signature” drop-down menu(s), as desired. Once you hit “OK”, you are done. It’s that easy.

Your signature should look like the sample above. Please do not use any other colors, backgrounds, or quotes/extra text in your signature.

OUTLOOK 365 (For Mac)

Download and open this .htm file in any browser. Copy the content from the browser using Cmd+A followed by Cmd+C. Go to your Outlook and select “New Email” to compose a new email. Choose Signature from the Message tab and select Edit Signatures… from the dropdown. In the Signatures pop-up window hit the “+” button in the left sub-window under Edit signature. This will create a new Signature called “Untitled 1” which would open in another window. Copy the existing content in this window (if any) and paste the selected signature from the browser using Cmd+V. This will replace the already existing content (if any) with the new email signature template. To rename the new signature, double click on it and once the cursor changes to a type cursor, enter the new name and hit enter. Save the email using Cmd+S and exit the email signature window.

Your signature should look like the sample above. Please do not use any other colors, backgrounds, or quotes/extra text in your signature.

Quantum Email Signature - Text-Only Version

You may want to use a shorter, text-only signature for instances such as follow-up emails (replies or forwards) and emails sent from your mobile phone. For these instances, the following format is recommended:
