REDDIT LOGO The Snoo head logo is used on all above the line marketing materials and on our products. The logo is a stylized smiling alien head, a.k.a. Snoo, Reddit‘s mascot. Snoo represents Reddit’s friendly, conversational community aspect. The logo background is Orangered (FF4500, PMS 172 C), Reddit’s primary brand color, chosen for its vibrancy & distinctiveness. The Snoo head is always blank, like a canvas. Reddit logo Version 09-2020 03

Reddit wordmark Whenever possible, Reddit’s icon and wordmark should appear together. Reddit’s wordmark is a refined variation on its classic logo. The rounded letters and shorter “i” reflect the brand’s friendly, whimsical nature. The dot on the “i” is Orangered (FF4500, PMS 172 C) and oversized, recalling Snoo’s eyes. The wordmark should be aligned with the Snoo in the horizontal lockup, and the safe area determines relative placement in both configurations. REDDIT LOGO Version 09-2020 04

Clear space Make sure to leave enough space around the icon and the wordmark, so that they are distinct from other elements on the page. Safe space around the icon and lockups should be at least 140% of the icon size. REDDIT LOGO Version 09-2020 140% 140% 05

Treatments Whenever possible, use a Snoo head icon lockup with the wordmark. The Snoo icon can only be used alone on our platform or as a share icon. Otherwise it should always be accompanied by the wordmark or alongside a headline or other copy mentioning Reddit explicitly. The Snoo head should always appear blank or neutral with darker eyes and mouth. Never invert the Snoo icon. When our brand appears on a field of OrangeRed, it is differentiated with a white stroke around the icon.

SNOO Snoo, the Reddit mascot, is a genderless alien who represents discovery and understanding across communities. Snoo embodies the people who use our services. Snoo can can time travel. It runs. It hugs. It dresses up. It plays ice hockey. Snoo does not speak. It communicates non-verbally using its antenna, which may have wi-fi capabilities. Illustrations of Snoo should not be used in place of the official Reddit Snoo head logo. Snoo 10 Version 09-2020

SNOO Keep these specifications in mind whenever creating artwork of Snoo. Snoo can have a variety of facial expressions, and the curve and bend of the antenna helps to show emotion. For certain expressions such as a grin, Snoo may gain teeth or a tongue. But when not expressing emotion, Snoo may have no mouth at all. Similarly, Snoo’s hands normally have no digits and resemble mittens. However, when needed a hint of thumb or index finger may appear for certain hand positions, such as pointing.

Custom Snoos can be customized with accessories, hairstyles, eye and skin colors, and costumes to reflect the people and interests they represent.

Reddit users can ‘upvote’ or ‘downvote’ content the community contributes. The more upvotes a piece of content receives, the higher it will appear. Voting BRAND VOICE Our language preferences are the result of research and are designed to help people understand Reddit better. Most of these recommend a primary term that is more universally understood and should be used initially in communications, before introducing synonyms. This is the name for our platform and for the company. Do not refer to it as a ‘site’ or ‘website,’ instead call it a platform or app. Always capitalize Reddit. Reddit A person who uses Reddit is a Reddit user. Names on Reddit are preceded by ‘u/’which is an abbreviation of ‘username.’ For example, “u/spez.” A username may also be referred to as a “Reddit profile” or “Reddit account.” Reddit users The various discussion spaces on Reddit should be referred to as ‘Reddit communities’, or simply ‘communities’. Reddit community names are preceded by ‘r/’ which is an abbreviation for Reddit. For example, “the r/skincareaddiction community.” Communities Terminology 16 Version 09-2020

BRAND VOICE Every Reddit user’s personalized feed of content is their ‘Home’ feed. Trending content from communities they are subscribed to and Reddit users they follow appear here. Avoid referring to this as the ‘front page’ to reduce confusion. Reddit users ‘join’ a community to see posts from that community in their Home feed. Reddit users ‘follow’ other users to see their posts. Join, follow Reddit users accrue ‘karma’ when they participate on Reddit. Karma is a score that increases as a Reddit user’s posts and comments get upvoted. Karma Snoo is Reddit’s smiling alien mascot. Snoo’s name is a play on “what’s new”. When referring to our mascot, ‘Snoo’ should be capitalized. Snoo can also generally refer to its alien race, who are collectively known as ‘Snoos’. Snoo Home feed Content Reddit users have shared and discussions they have had on Reddit appear on their ‘profile’. For example, “u/spez’s profile”. Profile The ‘front page’ is our Popular feed where top content is aggregated from across thousands of active communities on Reddit. “Making the front page” means that a piece of content has become popular enough to be featured in this feed. Front page A Reddit ‘post’ is the broad term for any content shared on Reddit, whether it is a story, link, image, poll or video.
