Bulging Sack of Brand Identity Guideline Resources

I love me some Brand Guideline Resources and you will see that in the past I have featured a variety of such brand book covering: 

I keep searching for other prime examples of books, corporate , guides, and through out these searches I often stumble across some nice examples, but not examples that provide the WOW factor.

The WOW factor is more of personal opinion rather than a scientific method of assessing WOW from NON-WOW, but usually based on what I also feel other people will take note of.

The Bulging Sack of Brand Guideline Resources is a collection of and resources that I have collected over time that will hopefully keep you busy for a short while. A few are a few years old, and you have likely seen around, but I also think a few could be new to you.

Massive thanks to Sasha Agapov @agapov for reaching out to me, and sending me CISCO, Best Buy and Ford brand guideline.

Some companies don’t feel the need to create a brand book and so create a simpler online version. Penguin Logo Guidelines is one such example.

The Pepsi brand book is really good for a giggle. Have to wonder what planet the design team/person was on when this was conceptualised, but regardless of home planet they certainly have a wicked sense of humour. Practical joke time.
