OnRamp is an initiative by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Milwaukee Bucks, and gener8tor, to give young companies the opportunity to pitch their products and services, one-on-one, to established corporations in Wisconsin.
The logo mark resembles a real on-ramp. It suggests a meeting point of two groups – startups and corporations. Whichever direction is followed, the two groups will meet. The mark is also a loop, suggesting a long term relationships between the companies and their continuous growth – today’s startups will become tomorrows corporations offering support to new startups.

Some of the identity guidelines
These guidelines refer to any short copy attached to the signature like a tagline, sub-brand or event date and location. They are attached in continuation to the logotype, and in the light weight version of the same typeface.
Adding a text paragraph
Based on the guidelines above, creating the signature for OnRamp Labs was straight forward.
