Our brand and how we use it.
This guide is a brief overview of Heretik’s general branding and design aesthetic. Our logo, colors, logo, and typefaces should remain consistent across all platforms to maintain the standard look and feel of Heretik. If you have any questions, concerns, or additional design requests, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
With extensive backgrounds in legal and enterprise software, Heretik co-founders Charlie Connor, Andy Abbott, and David Barnes realized how transformational an intelligent contract analytic solution could be for the legal industry. They began researching current market solutions, interviewing firms, and eventually brought their idea to Relativity’s CEO & Co-founder, Andrew Sieja. Sieja excitedly confirmed a contract analytic solution was their clients’ number one request and he himself had been looking for opportunities to expand the core of Relativity outside of litigation.
A heretic, by definition, is someone who refuses to conform to established standards of conduct. They challenge society with their alternative beliefs and are often the outcast. As career-entrepreneurs, this word really resonated with the guys. After much debate, they decided to replace the ‘c’ with a ‘k’ and the name Heretik was born in October 2016.
As a company, we define ourselves as those who refuse to conform to established standards of conduct by seeking knowledge. We believe any challenge can be solved through the right mix of people and technology and are passionate about connecting expert problem-solvers with the most important, thrilling, and profitable parts of their work. So much so, that we incorporated an easter egg in our logo – the flame is also the letter ‘K’!
‘Full Heretik Logo Dark’ is our primary logo and should be used whenever possible.
When using the Heretik logo in digital mediums, please use the gradient dark or light logos accordingly. For print or any other tangible medium, please use the flat value. The B&W should only be used for special design circumstances that call for it.
The Heretik Flame Logo should only be used after the full logo has been established. It can be used with text or can stand alone, depending on the situation. Use your best judgment when deciding this.
Our primary colors are Fire Red (#f15f47), Tangerine (#eb814a), Night Sky (#2e3137), and Cloud White (#ffffff).
Our secondary colors are Mint Green (#5cc09a), Electric Blue (#5ebfec), and Sea Fog (#656784).
All other colors in our palette can be used to accent designs or styles.
When appropriate, gradients can be used to accent a design. When using a gradient, it should be linear, angled to whatever best suits the photo or design. Photos should begin as black and white before gradient is applied unless the original color with gradient looks on brand when gradient is added.
Fire Red – Tangerine
Mint Green – Electric Blue
Virtual Purple – Sea Fog
Light Grey – Cloud White
Night Sky – Outer Space
For print or digital designs, Heretik uses Avenir Next as our brand font and Mission Gothic as our logo font. Headers should be any of our primary colors (Fire Red, Tangerine, or Night Sky, or Cloud White) or secondary colors (Mint Green, Electric Blue, or Sea Fog), and sub-headers and body copy should always be Night Sky, Outer Space, or Cloud White depending on the design circumstances.
For web designs, Heretik uses Roboto in various weights as our brand font. We try our best to incorporate brand colors through other elements on the page, so all of the copy should be Outer Space or Cloud White depending on design circumstances.
Heretik is a lightweight, deployable application that seamlessly integrates into your Relativity instance. Our contract review solution enables Relativity users to extend their favorite e-Discovery tool to corporate transaction and regulatory response use cases, enhancing best practices with minimal disruption.
From inception, we’ve prioritized cutting-edge machine learning technology along with workflow capabilities to allow users to take immediate action on their contract data. Whether managing massive M&A transactions, comparing messy employment agreements, or extracting critical data in bespoke contracts, our solution reduces days or weeks of work to minutes. The results? More accurate bids, better win rates, larger capacity to manage contracts, and expanded footprints within key accounts.
