Logo (Center) (Neighboring).png


We are constantly striving to increase our positive impact on the world
around us, and our branding is a reflection of that commitment.

Our icon represents a handshake and unison - highlighting our beliefs in
community and collaboration.

Our icon serves as a strong, recognizable symbol that can be used in places where text cannot be used.

Core Brand Colors

Neighboring Concepts has a strong emphasis on shades of green. These shades remind us of the green landscape we see in many of the communities we serve - growing strong, tall, and healthy. Green is a friendly color and has been a recognizable part of our brand for many years.


We’ve developed a palette that consolidates the shades we use into four core colors.

Our primary and secondary colors are taken directly from our logo. Here’s the common hierarchy in which they’re used:



Dark is an accent color to our palette, typically used for bold backgrounds



Primary is the core color of our brand. This is the hue that the world associates with Neighboring Concepts. When in doubt, find reassurance in our primary color.



Secondary is our secondary green color, it accompanies the primary green and provides a pleasurable contrast.



Highlight is a light alternative, used for backgrounds and to add splashes of color in other places


Addington CF

Addington CF is the typeface we use for headlines, it provides a recognizable look and style throughout our materials. It should already be installed on your computer and available in programs.
