Guidelines

Equinix is a global brand that reaches many different audiences in many different ways. Across varying touchpoints and assets, including International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers and office environments, it is imperative that we maintain a consistent and impactful representation of the brand. As such, we have created a set of brand guidelines to assist anyone involved in visually representing the Equinix brand.

Video brand

Branded videos are an important part of the Equinix asset mix. To ensure brand consistency, this document provides a brand requirements checklist for all videos, an overview of available branded video assets, an overview of video style/animation/music styles, and provides video shooting best practices and considerations for video creation. Video assets are also available in our “Brand Assets: Guidelines” collection.
