The idFORGE Framework

The idFORGE Framework exists to improve the visual recognition of your organization. It provides standard procedures to rebuild the visual identity manual of a particular organization and the files necessary for its implementation, using customized visual styles. In this context, the organization publishes the source files describing its visual identity and allows others (e.g., you) to provide visual styles to customize it.

The idFORGE Framework results useful for organizations and projects that need to "refresh" their visual style within frequent periods of time (e.g., every two years approximately) without altering their visual identity structure. For example, whenever the CentOS Project (the organization) releases a new major release of CentOS GNU/Linux distribution (visual manifestation) it must have a new image (visual style) to differentiate it from other major releases of the same visual manifestation. This major change of image demands the CentOS Project to propagate the new visual style to dependent visual manifestation (e.g., web sites, documentation, promotion stuff, etc.) so they can be all recognized as a single visual unit. This visual consistency renders a huge impact in the way the organization presents itself both internally and externally; so it is the mission and vision that motivates idFORGE Framework development.
