Positioning

(How we do it)

Vacation State

Florida isn’t just a state. It’s a state of mind. It’s where you go to be more relaxed, more carefree, more open to connections, and more ready for fun. But it’s also a mindset you carry with you every day afterward, reminding you that your vacation self is your best self.

Tagline

Follow Your
Sunshine

Follow Your Sunshine encourages travelers to embrace their own version of a Florida vacation, empowering people to let go of their worries, push away the day-to-day grind, and give in to their best instincts, celebrating the part of themselves that’s brightest, warmest, and most inspired.

Colors Inspired By Florida’s Diverse Beauty

Florida has an array of colors from saturated sunsets and pastel homes in the Keys, to turquoise Central Florida springs, to the vibrant interiors of Flagler College in historic St. Augustine, and the rich street art of Wynwood and St. Petersburg. Our palette celebrates that range and uses our “mid” colors as pops within layout so that the imagery is the focus and travelers can connect and be inspired by it.

Welcoming Type That’s Familiar But Fresh

Our brand is modern and approachable and so is our typography. Henderson Sans is our primary font and represents the casual Florida vacation state of mind. We also have a stylized version with a unique shadow effect that makes the type pop off the page. Finally, we have a textured script font for our city lockups and other call-outs that emulates handwriting to add a personal touch.

Capturing Real Emotion

Our photography needs to represent Florida’s diversity of locations and activities as well as the diversity of our visitors. Images must capture the rich emotion brought about by a Florida vacation while still capturing the beautiful surroundings.

A Voice That Goes Where the Sunshine Leads

For writing within the Follow Your Sunshine brand, our voice is driven by simple, reactive, emotional truths. While our tone is upbeat, playful and bright, our lines should not be overly clever, but rather find their humor, warmth and smile in relatable responses to situations. We’re always looking for ways to explore the emotional depth of a moment, and encouraging our audience to embrace their instincts on vacation. If while writing, you’re looking at an image and asking yourself, “what would the subject be feeling or thinking in this moment?” you’re on the right track.

Right here. Right now.

In layout, we bring all the elements together to create a light and spacious look that lets our photography shine. Our new system is flexible and allows layouts to tell short and long stories. A subtle design element like rounded corners harkens to family photo albums while still modern. And the layered photo style creates an emotional connection while providing locational context and telling more of the story.
