AMD Co-Branding

Guidelines

Ver 1.0 - October, 2013

(2)

The AMD brand, at its core, defines who AMD is and how we are perceived. A strong brand is a

powerful tool for partners and customers who participate in joint marketing efforts.

The following co-branding guidelines will help you understand how to best convey the AMD brand

as well as the optimism and spirit of innovation that are genuine to our culture.

We appreciate your support in helping actively manage and protect the AMD brand in the spirit

of shared success. On behalf of the entire Marketing organization, I thank you for your commitment

to being an ambassador of our brand.

Enjoy!

Purpose of this Document

A well-managed brand both shapes and reflects a company’s strategic direction, and can give the company a competitive advantage.

A brand constitutes a set of promises that people associate with the company. For AMD, our brand defines who we are and describes the

experiences that AMD technologies enable.

To ensure that aMD benefits fully from our partnerships with other brands, it’s essential that we clearly and appropriately

communicate these associations in a manner that is:

\

Efficient, leveraging our brand management resources productively

\

Consistent, developing clear visual cues that help AMD communicate our relationship to other brands

\

Effective, clear and understandable from a customer perspective

The guidelines in this document will help to streamline the development of co-branded materials while protecting the valuable

corporate and product brand assets for all involved. The guidelines provide top-line parameters for using the AMD logo, the AMD name,

and AMD’s product brands and program brands in co-branded environments.

This document should be especially useful for anyone responsible for managing brand and marketing relationships. Any reference in this

document to “partners” means an AMD business or technology partner, as the case may be.

Co-Branding vs. Co-Marketing

Brand relationships and co-branding allow AMD to deliver benefits to customers above and beyond those that AMD already delivers. Most often, our relationships are co-marketing relationships, rather than co-branding relationships. Both types of relationships have particular characteristics.

As an example, co-marketing typically consists of demand generation activities and features an AMD product badge placement + text mention on retailer advertising.

Depending on whether we are engaging in a co-marketing or co-branding project the level of interaction and involvement from the brand team, brand prominence and requirements will vary.

Co-marketing relationships:

\ Generally consist of demand generation programs, tactical in nature

\ Separately leverage the equities of AMD and another entity

\ Can be lightly coordinated or led by one party only

Co-branding relationships:

\ Generally consist of long-term engagements

\ Combine skills and resources of AMD and another entity

1.0 / UnDersTanDing CO-branDing relaTiOnships / DiFFerenT Types OF CO-branDing relaTiOnships

liCensing

AMD works with leading companies to bring high quality products to market using the AMD name. The licensees are not only responsible for the appropriate usage of the AMD brand assets but also for protecting the AMD brand.

\ Example: Sapphire, XFX, ASUS

strategiC allianCes

A strategic alliance consists of two or more businesses joining together for a set period of time. Such alliances therefore extend beyond one-time engagements. The businesses, usually, are not in direct competition, but have similar strategic views, or complementary products, services or solutions that are directed toward the same target audience.

Sales agreements, channel relationships and short-term promotional relationships in most cases do not qualify as alliances. Note that a strategic alliance might not characterize the entire business relationship between two or more entities, but does apply to specific areas of common interest.

\ Example: Heterogeneous System Architecture, ISV relationships (for example, Battlefield 4 engagement with Dice)

(8)

1.0 / UnDersTanDing CO-branDing relaTiOnships / DiFFerenT Types OF CO-branDing relaTiOnships

oem relationship and ingredient branding

An OEM relationship is one in which a partner purchases and uses an AMD product or solution as a core component of the partner’s product offering. The relationships can create new product solutions, generate sales for AMD products and create win-win situations for the parties engaged.

\ Example: PC manufacturer promotion, retail promotion of PC manufacturer’s system

sponsorship programs

Sponsorship programs are advertising and/or co-branding that seeks to establish a deeper association and integration between AMD and a publisher, often involving coordinated, joint marketing and co-branded activities. Note that not all marketing engagements (e.g. events, training) should be considered a sponsorship.

\ Example: Austin City Limits Festival

third partY events

Events run by third parties provide opportunities to present AMD and our core competencies within a specific context, and allow AMD to gain access to interesting target audiences. Events allow AMD to communicate relevant brand relationships to prospective users and customers and strengthen both the AMD brand and that of the third party entity responsible for the event.

\ Example: Oracle OpenWorld, HP Discover, Dell World

amd events

AMD events provide opportunities for us to showcase particular product capabilities, present our company as a whole, or allow us to engage with key strategic target audiences. We might engage with our partners in co-branding activities for AMD events, in which case we should position AMD as the dominant partner.

\ Example: AMD Developer Summit, AMD dinner sponsored by a vendor/partner

invisible or hidden brand - When adding the AMD brand to the

communication about a particular product, service or solution does not add value from a customer perspective, we should position AMD as an invisible brand. AMD logo not necessary in this instance.

\ Example: AMD technology-based PCs

supporting partner - When the partner’s brand is more relevant to

customers, or when the partner is responsible for sales and support of, or is the primary provider of the product, service or solution, we should position AMD as a supporting brand.

\ Example: AMD providing AMD RadeonTM

GPU to AIBs

ingredient brand - When AMD as a partner brand provides a component for one of our customers’ products, and when association adds value in the eyes of customers, we should position AMD as a valuable ingredient brand.

\ Example: OEM XYZ Notebook with AMD Quad-Core A8-Series APU

Equal partner - When AMD partners with another strong brand to offer complementary products or services that are sold and marketed together, we should position AMD as an equal partner.

\ Example: AMD “Never Settle” game bundle with FarCry3, HitMan, etc.

Dominant partner - When we are the lead partner and define the terms of the contract, we should apply AMD-dominant branding. This should be the default starting point, especially when AMD enjoys greater brand relevance among the target audience.

\ Example: APU 13 Developer Summit

Unique brand - When partners manufacture and/or distribute products for AMD, but the final product is exclusively AMD-branded, we should position AMD as a unique brand. AMD logo or AMD product or service badge only with no partner brand necessary.

\ Example: AMD RadeonTM

Corporate Logo

amd visual identitY—basiCs

AMD visual identity elements begin with, and in many cases flow from, our logo. The AMD logo is the most fundamental visual element of our corporate brand identity. Only the two versions of logo artwork below may be used. The arrow icon may not be used as a stand-alone icon or logo. The AMD logo has no tagline.

Do not modify or recreate the logo in any way. Departing from these guidelines can result in both a legal and branding risk for AMD. Use the logo in combination with the appropriate trademark attribution, which you can find available from your regional marketing or marketing communications contact. The AMD logo (PID#53836A) is available at adam.amd.com.

External-facing logo appropriate for any media. The reversed logo can be used on any color (not just black).

Corporate Logo size

The AMD logo needs adequate space to stand out with confidence and clarity. The minimum clear space is measured by 1x – the white square in the AMD Arrow mark. Nothing should intrude into this specified clear space, although you can have more clear space than the minimum.

* Please note that after careful consideration an exception to the minimum clear space around the logo was made on the application of AMD’s Product Badges. Adhere to the guidelines above in every other instance.

Use caution when scaling the AMD logo up. If it is too big, it may become overpowering and the viewer will lose the true intent of the messaging.

As the AMD logo is reduced in size it is important to make sure it stays legible and recognizable. For that reason, make sure the logo is never smaller than 0.675" in width.

AMD client identities are most effective when surrounded by as much clear space as possible. Clear space is defined as an area that is completely free of other objects or elements. A minimum area demonstrated in the diagram to the right must surround the identity in all situations. The A10 Elite Quad-Core logo has been used in this diagram for illustrative purposes.

Please note: These clear space requirements are standard for all AMD client identities.

Product Badge Extensions

The extensions or “side car” may be used when the AMD standalone client product integrated by the OEM is either :

\ Featuring aMD radeonTM graphics or aMD radeonTM Dual graphics

The side car enhances the value proposition and highlights the additional graphic power to end customers. The use of these must be consistent with the system confi guration

\ Targeted to commercial client

The AMD product badge can be enhanced with the PRO side car to highlight the specifi c AMD client

value proposition and support the overall commercial tonality of the branding and marketing of the system. It is not possible to combine 2 extensions with 1 single standalone product badge.

Color Palette

amd visual identitY—Colors

Color is one of the cornerstones of the AMD brand identity. With consistent and accurate use of the AMD color palette, we establish a uniform, and therefore recognizable, brand image. AMD’s primary colors are vivid, vibrant and rich. Our primary colors help distinguish between our customer segments.

2.0 / VisUal iDenTiTy sysTeM OVerView / COlOr paleTTe

3. overlap Palette

The overlap palette fills the gap between the primary and neutral colors.

PMS: 187 C HEX: b11116 C: 0 R: 177 M: 100 G: 17 Y: 100 B: 22 K: 30 PMS: 7679 C HEX: 4d207a C: 80 R: 77 M: 100 G: 32 Y: 0 B: 122 K: 20 PMS: 7468 C HEX: 007c97 C: 100 R: 0 M: 40 G: 124 Y: 35 B: 151 K: 0 PMS: 377 C HEX: 67ae3e C: 60 R: 103 M: 0 G: 174 Y: 100 B: 62 K: 10 PMS: 7580 C HEX: c74a1b C: 0 R: 199 M: 80 G: 74 Y: 100 B: 27 K: 20

The primary palette is made up of a vivid range of colors. They have been selected to work together regardless of the application. Together they are the foundation of the color that makes up the AMD brand.

1. Primary Palette

2. neutral Palette

The neutral palette has been created to bring balance to the expressive nature of the primary palette. The variation of grays can be combined with any one of the primary colors to create an edgy, sophisticated look.

oEM Relationships and ingredient Branding

The typical relationship for an ingredient brand is product co-marketing, which refers to brand relationships where our OEM or ODM partner’s products include the AMD product or corporate brand. These product co-marketing engagements are typically designed to highlight the AMD brand and, in doing so, provide differentiation that enhances the final product value proposition.

For this category of engagement generally, where AMD participates as a third party, the creative will be in the OEM’s look and feel. The visual treatment should convey that AMD is simply participating in, and is not responsible for, the marketing activity. With that principle in mind, brand prominence can be augmented through methods such as messaging, use of AMD´s branding elements and alignment on tone and voice. As a general principle, product-focused co-marketing materials need to feature the appropriate AMD product badge. In some cases, and in addition, the AMD corporate logo may be featured in association with the system manufacturer’s corporate logo, although this is optional and is not a requirement. See Strategic Alliance section for details on appropriate logo utilization.

\ Should two OEM products based on AMD be next to each other, use both AMD product badges, or, if space does not allow, the badge from the AMD highest product brand, provided that doing so does not create the impression that both systems are the higher product

\ Minimum badge size should be followed (see visual identity overview)

\ Correct AMD product mention should be featured following the applicable nomenclature guidelines

oEM Relationships and ingredient Branding

broadCast

\ For television and radio broadcasts that will include AMD as an enabling technology, our brandmark, product badges and trademarks should be treated with the same care that they would in print or online

\ Television – On-screen Graphics. For on-screen graphics, the width of AMD’s brandmark and product badges should be at least 15% of the height of the screen’s safe area. The AMD logo should be displayed for a minimum of 2 seconds

\ Static on-screen product badge placement should reflect the previous examples provided for print and online usage

\ Radio and Television – Voiceover references to trademarked AMD products and technologies on radio and TV is required and should remain consistent with the appropriate trademark usage guidelines

\ In addition to the badge placement, either a voice over AMD mention or an on-screen text mention is required. Featuring both voice over and text mention is preferred

\ For live broadcast, for example QVC, the brand prominence will be determined by the AMD project owner using Broadcast guidelines as a direction.

• CORRECT VOICE-OVER USAGE:

“Systems feature AMD A10 processors for outstanding performance.” • INCORRECT VOICE-OVER USAGE:

“Systems feature A10 processors for outstanding performance.” “Systems feature AMD A10 for outstanding performance.” “Put the power of A10 in your PC.”

All broadcast advertising needs to be reviewed and approved in advance by the brand team at brand.team@amd.com. Please send storyboard for review as well as final creative for approval. Note that the SLA for any review process is 24 hours.

\ AMD should be the lead brand on all collateral

\ AMD logo ideally should appear above the partner logo, if the layout allows it

\ AMD logo should be twice the length/height of the partner logo

\ When logos are side by side, include a dividing rule line between AMD and its external partner; the line should be black

\ In cases where the perceptions/equity of partner brands are unclear, create a distance of at least twice the logo length between the AMD and partner logos

amd as supporting partner

If the contract or partner guidelines do not specify a visual treatment, the following guidance applies.

\ For the instance where a partner brand enjoys greater relevance among end users/ customers, allow the partner logo to lead on the left (or above if there are space constraints)

\ AMD and partner logos should be the same relative size and separated by a vertical line; the line should be black

\ Surrounding elements are in the partner’s look and feel; if partner guidelines allow, consider using the AMD look and feel

sponsorship Programs

When AMD and one or more of its industry partners join forces in an initiative, campaign, announcement or event where the level of effort or sponsorship varies, we refer to this as a sponsorship.

All sponsorship with budget above $50k must be approved by the AMD brand team and corporate marketing staff. Note that all sponsorship with monetary value need to go through the GSM and legal review process. The AMD brand team can provide deeper guidance on logo and product badge usage and execution in the following configurations:

title partner

These are high-commitment sponsorships where AMD takes the lead role. Over time, we become strongly associated with the event or location.

\ Use AMD’s proprietary font and colors to create a text treatment

\ For long-term venues and naming rights, unique identifiers will be created. Identifiers are to be developed in cooperation with the brand team and require CMO approval

teChnologY partner

These demonstrate AMD’s leadership in technology and the strength of our extensive portfolio. A level of exclusivity should be negotiated (i.e., no competitors should have a similar relationship with the partner)

\ Treat as an equal partnership, with AMD as the lead brand

\ For larger sponsorships, overall branding scope to be reviewed and approved by the brand team

Corporate partner

These general sponsorships serve a range of objectives from brand-building to hospitality

\ Treat as an equal partnership, with AMD as the lead brand

\ For larger sponsorships, overall branding scope to be reviewed and approved by the brand team

Events

amd Corporate event

\ Create a unique AMD logo lockup representing the event with copy + nomenclature to describe the value proposition of the event

\ Include a dividing rule line between AMD and the event name/nomenclature

\ The event nomenclature/name should be true to the event but also to the brand strategy

\ We do not recommend including dates in the event locked logo

\ Example of event: AMD Developer Summit

amd standard event

\ Do not create a unique event lockup

\ Create association to the AMD brand using placement of corporate logo or product badge where appropriate

\ Treat the event name as text/copy rather than a logo

\ Example: AMD French Women Forum

Events

standard event — trade shoW booth

\ At the event itself, showcase AMD, its offerings and its brand relationships according to our visual identity and brand relationship guidelines

\ Showcase event taglines or core messages while keeping a clear focus on the prominence of the corporate brand

\ Example: AMD presence at IFA

premium level sponsor or keYnote at event

\ Treat the relationship similarly to a strategic alliance, with AMD defaulting to an equal or supporting role in communications about the event - Ensure that the visual treatment conveys that we’re participating in and are not responsible for the event

- Use elements of the AMD brand where appropriate, e.g. on-brand photography, colors, and design elements such as the AMD polygons

\ When specific event templates exist, AMD presenters should follow the third-party event template and include the AMD logo in a supporting role

\ When there is no event template, AMD presenters should use approved AMD templates and reference the event name in copy or insert the event logo

\ In every case, add the appropriate trademark attribution and legal disclaimer to the content

\ Example of event: Austin City Limits

amd Corporate event - Website

\ If the event qualifies as a signature event and is approved as such by the brand team, develop and apply a unique visual treatment and custom AMD logo lockup to all web presence elements

\ Use event nomenclature that captures the theme and objectives of the event while supporting our brand strategy

\ If we’ve developed an approved event tagline, include it on event-related communications, but do not lock up a tagline with the AMD corporate logo

Event Name 2014
