The Brand controls the look and feel of the Applicant Portal, Job Directory and Application Form of an Opening. Fountain supports multiple Brands with each having its own Brand name, logo, and Brand color. The Brand is applied to the Location level of the Opening, which allows you to apply the branded visual to multiple Openings that are in this Location at once.

What's Covered

Add a Brand

  1. Go to Company Settings by clicking on your profile icon on the top right. 
  2. Under the Brands section, click on brand(s).
  3. Click the blue Add brand button.
  4. Decide if you want to use the modern design or the default design.

    Modern DesignDefault Design
    • This design is best for Applicant Portals with less content and media.
    • It separates instructions and information into bite-size sections with the extra pop-up modal.


    Customize Brand in Modern Design

    1. Check the box for Use modern designs
    2. Type in your Brand's name (this name will be used externally)
    3. Add a Brand color.
    4. Add a Brand logo.
    5. Add a square logo if you have one (highly recommend).

      Don't Have a Square Logo

      If your company does not have a square logo you can leave this section blank. Fountain will take your regular logo and shrink it down to fit into a square. This will be used on the job directory and application forms.

  5. Click Save on the top bar.

Updating or Removing a Brand

  1. To edit a brand, click on Actions next to the Brand you want to edit.
  2. Click Edit.
  1. To delete a brand click on Actions next to the Brand you want to delete.
  2. Click Delete. 
  3. Click on the red Delete Brand to confirm.


Apply Brand to Location

When you add a Location there is an option to set the Brand. Any Openings using that Location will now have this branded look for its Applicant Portal, Job Directory and Application Form.


Setting a Default Brand

If you have multiple brands, you want to set one as the default Brand so Locations that don't have a Brand selected will have this default Brand applied.

The default Brand is also applied to pages that are not Location specific (for example, the Job Directory).

  1. Click on Actions next to the brand you want to make as your default.
  2. Click Make default. 


Color Contrast and Accessibility

Within the Brand Editor, if the brand color that you’ve selected does not meet the accessibility contrast minimum, you will see a warning message alerting you that the color is not accessible. 


Why is Color Contrast Important?

Color contrast refers to the level of contrast between the text and the background on a website. If contrast is low, then the text can be hard or almost impossible to read. Higher contrast means that the text is easier to read.

Fountain will review for a background color with a high enough contrast to allow all individuals to easily view the colors in the application. This includes applicants with various kinds of color blindness.
