Style guides are odd little things, the idea behind them is to unify all items in a particular brand so that they are easily recognisable and that the brand is being accurately represented. What’s fun about them is that sometimes they have some odd little bits of information in them which is unknown, other times they have mock-ups of products which don’t actually exist, but could exist based on the mock up imagery in the books.
…And they’re not easy to get hold of, no really, they rarely pop up on ebay, the only way to get one is to buy a Sonic license… yeah.
So you can imagine my surprise when the full Style Guide is up for viewing on the website which produced it, unfortunately, the images are not the largest so some of the text isn’t readable, but there are one or two interesting facts and notifications.
For instance, Eggman is apparently not all that interested in destroying Sonic, but he’s just after attention, “if Eggman snagged a legit invite to Sonic’s next sleepover, then Eggman would consider it a real victory”.
The full style guide is available in our gallery.
