The Corporate Marketing team includes Content Marketing, Corporate Events, PR (Public Relations), All-Remote Marketing, and Design. Corporate Marketing is responsible for the stewardship of the GitLab brand and the company's messaging/positioning. The team is the owner of the Marketing website and oversees the website strategy. Corporate Marketing develops a global, integrated communication strategy, executes globally, and enables field marketing to adapt and apply global strategy regionally by localizing and verticalizing campaigns for in-region execution. Corporate marketing also ensures product marketing, outreach, and marketing & sales development are conducted in a way that amplifies our global brand.
GitLab's brand has a personality that is reflected in everything we do. It doesn't matter if we are hosting a fancy dinner with fortune 500 CIOs, at a hackathon, or telling our story on about.gitlab.com…across all our communication methods, and all our audiences, GitLab has a personality that shows up in how we communicate.
Our personality is built around four main characteristics.
Human: We write like we talk. We avoid buzzwords and jargon, and instead communicate simply, clearly, and sincerely. We treat people with kindness.
Competent: We are highly accomplished, and we communicate with conviction. We are efficient at everything we do.
Quirky: We embrace diversity of opinion. We embrace new ideas based on their merit, even if they defy commonly held norms.
Humble: We care about helping those around us achieve great things more than we care about our personal accomplishments.
These four characteristics work together to form a personality that is authentic to GitLab team-members, community, and relatable to our audience. If we were quirky without being human we could come across as eccentric. If we were competent without being humble we could come across as arrogant.
GitLab has a higher purpose. We want to inspire a sense of adventure in those around us so that they join us in contributing to making that mission a reality.
Tone of voice
The following guide outlines the set of standards used for all written company
communications to ensure consistency in voice, style, and personality, across all
of GitLab's public communications.
GitLab is an open source project
with a large community of contributors. Over 2,000 people worldwide have
contributed to GitLab's source code.
GitLab the company
GitLab Inc. is a company based on the GitLab open source project. GitLab Inc. is
an active participant in our community (see our stewardship of GitLab CE
for more information), as well as offering GitLab, a product (see below).
GitLab the product
GitLab is a complete DevOps platform, delivered as a single application. See the
product elevator pitch
for additional messaging.
Tone of voice
The tone of voice we use when speaking as GitLab should always be informed by
our Content Strategy.
Most importantly, we see our audience as co-conspirators, working together to
define and create the next generation of software development practices. The below
table should help to clarify further:
Equals in our community
We explain things in the simplest way possible, using plain, accessible language.
We keep a sense of humor about things, but don't make light of serious issues or
problems our users or customers face.
We use colloquialisms and slang, but sparingly (don't look like you're trying too hard!).
Create a new merge request and branch in www-gitlab-com.
On your branch, navigate to source then press and click on the releases folder.
Add a new file using the following format YYYY-MM-DD-title-of-press-release.html.md.
Add the following to the beginning of your document:
title: "Title of press release"
Add the content of the press release to the file and save. Make sure to include any links. It is important to not have any extra spaces after sentences that end a paragraph or your pipeline will break. You must also not have extra empty lines at the end of your doc. So make sure to check that when copying and pasting a press release from a google doc.
Updating the /press/#press-releases page
When you have added a press release, be sure to update the index page too so that it is linked to from /press/#press-releases.
Scroll down to press_releases:, then scroll to the most recent dated press release.
Underneath, add another entry for your new press release using the same format as the others, ensuring that your alignment is correct and that dashes and words begin in the same columns.
The URL for your press release will follow the format of your filename for it: /press/releases/YYYY-MM-DD-title-of-press-release.html.
Updating the recent news section
Every Friday the PR agency will send a digest of top articles.
Product marketing will update the Recent News section with the most recent listed at the top. Display 10 articles at a time. To avoid formatting mistakes, copy and paste a previous entry on the page, and edit with the details of the new coverage. You may need to search online for a thumbnail to upload to images/press, if coverage from that publication is not already listed on the page. If you upload a new image, make sure to change the path listed next to image_tag.
Requesting design help
Create an issue in the corresponding project repository.
Add all relevant details, goal(s), purpose, resources, and links in the issue description. Also @ mention team members who will be involved.
Set due date (if possible) — please leave at least 2 week lead time in order to generate custom design assets. If you need them sooner, ping @luke in the #marketing-design Slack channel and we will make our best effort to accommodate, but can't promise delivery.
Add the Design and Website Redesign (if applicable) label(s) to your issue.
The Design label in issue tracker
The Design label helps us find and track issues relevant to the Design team. If you create an issue where Design is the primary focus, please use this label.
Per the Design team's discretion, the prioritization of design projects will be based on the direct impact on Marketing.
Any design requests that do not fall in line with the goals and objectives of Marketing will be given a lower priority and factored in as time allows.
The Design team has a rather wide reach and plays a big part in almost all marketing efforts. Design touchpoints range from the GitLab website to print collateral, swag, and business cards. This includes, but certainly not limited to:
In the spirit of 'everyone can contribute' (as well as version control and SEO) we prefer webpages over PDFs. We will implement a print.css component to these webpages so that print PDFs can still be utilized for events and in-person meetings without the headache of version control
To download the GitLab logo (in various formats and file types) check out our Press page.
The GitLab logo
The GitLab logo consists of two components, the icon (the tanuki) and the wordmark:
GitLab is most commonly represented by the logo, and in some cases, the icon alone. GitLab is rarely represented by the wordmark alone as we'd like to build brand recognition of the icon alone (e.g. the Nike swoosh), and doing so by pairing it with the GitLab wordmark.
Logo safe space
Safe space acts as a buffer between the logo or icon and other visual components, including text. this space is the minimum distance needed and is equal to the x-height of the GitLab wordmark:
The x-height also determines the proper spacing between icon and wordmark, as well as, the correct scale of the icon relative to the wordmark:
The tanuki is a very smart animal that works together in a group to achieve a common goal. We feel this symbolism embodies GitLab's mission that everyone can contribute, our values, and our open source stewardship.
Under the Creative Commons license, you may use the GitLab trademark and logo so long as you give attribution to GitLab and provide a link to the license. If you make any changes to the logo, you must state so, along with the attribution, and distribute under the same license.
Your use of the GitLab trademark and logo:
May not be for commercial purposes;
May not suggest or imply that you or your use of the GitLab trademark or logo is endorsed by GitLab, or create confusion as to whether or not you or your use of the GitLab trademark or logo is endorsed by GitLab; and
May not suggest or imply or that you are affiliated with GitLab in any way, or create confusion as to whether or not you are affiliated with GitLab in any way.
Examples of improper use of the GitLab trademark and logo:
The GitLab name may not be used in any root URL, including subdomains such as gitlab.company.com or gitlab.citool.io.
The GitLab trademark and/or logo may not be used as the primary or prominent feature on any non-GitLab materials.
Using other logos
Logos used on the about.gitlab.com site should always be in full color and be used to the specifications provided by the owner of that logo, which can usually be found on the owners website. The trust marks component found throughout the site is the only exception and should use a neutral tone:
The tanuki logo should also not have facial features (eyes, ears, nose…); it is meant to be kept neutral, but it can be accessorized.
While the brand is ever-evolving, the GitLab brand currently consists of six primary colors that are used in a wide array of marketing materials.
The GitLab brand uses the Source Sans Pro font family. Headers (h1, h2, etc.) always have a weight of 600 (unless used in special situations like large, custom quotes) and the body text always has a weight of 400. Headers should not be given custom classes, they should be used as tags and tags alone (h1, h2, etc.) and their sizes or weights should not be changed, unless rare circumstances occur. Here are typography tags.
H1: Header Level 1
H2: Header Level 2
H3: Header Level 3
H4: Header Level 4
p: Body text
Buttons are an important facet to any design system. Buttons define a call to action that lead people somewhere else, related to adjacent content. Here are buttons and their classes that should be used throughout the marketing website:
Note: Text within buttons should be concise, containing no more than 4 words, and should not contain bold text. This is to keep things simple, straightforward, and limits confusion as to where the button takes you.
Primary buttons are solid and should be the default buttons used. Depending on the color scheme of the content, purple or orange solid buttons can be used depending on the background color of the content. These primary buttons should be used on white or lighter gray backgrounds or any background that has a high contrast with the button color. They should also be a %a tag so it can be linked elsewhere and for accessibility. Buttons should also be given the class margin-top20 if the button lacks space between itself and the content above.
There will be times when two buttons are needed. This will be in places such as our jobs page, where we have a button to view opportunities and one to view our culture video. In this example, both buttons are solid, but one is considered the primary button (orange), and the other is the secondary button (white). The CSS class for the solid white button is .btn.cta-btn.btn-white.
This is the proper use of two buttons, both being solid, but different colors based on hierarchy. If the background is white or a lighter color that doesn't contrast well with a white-backgound button, a ghost button should be used as a secondary button, and should match in color to the primary button beside it as shown below:
DO NOT: Do not use these ghost buttons styles as standalone buttons. They have been proven to be less effective than solid buttons in a number of studies. They should only be used as a secondary button, next to a solid primary button that already exists. Here are the classes for the secondary buttons:
Icons are a valuable visual component to the GitLab brand; contributing to the overall visual language and user experience of a webpage, advertisement, or slide deck. The GitLab iconography currently consists of "label icons" and "content icons", each are explained in further detail below:
Label icons are intended to support usability and interaction. These are found in interactive elements of the website such as navigation and toggles.
Content icons are intended to provide visual context and support to content on a webpage; these icons also have a direct correlation to our illustration style with the use of bold outlines and fill colors.
Occasionally the old GitLab logo is still in use on partner websites, diagrams or images, and within our own documentation. If you come across our old logo in use, please bring it to our attention by creating an issue in the Marketing issue tracker. Please include a link and screenshot (if possible) in the description of the issue and we will follow-up to get it updated. Thanks for contributing to our brand integrity!
The goal of this guide is to provide written standards, principles and in-depth information to design beautiful and effective GitLab features. This is a living document and will be updated and expanded as we iterate.
GitLab Design System
We've broken out the GitLab interface into a set of atomic pieces to form our design system, Pajamas. Pajamas includes information such as our principles, components, usage guidelines, research methodologies, and more.

Best practices for public speaking
Below are some tips on being a better presenter. For an in-depth book that covers the entire speaking process, from submitting an abstract through preparing a structured talk to practicing and delivering read Demystifying Public Speaking.
Use a problem/solution format to tell a story. Many talks, especially tech talks, talk about what they built first and then what the result was. Flip this around and start with the why. Why did you need to take the action that you did? Talking about what problems you were encountering creates a narrative tension and people will listen intently to the talk because they want to hear the solution.
Drive towards an action. Ask yourself, "What will people do once they hear this talk?" The answer can't be, "be more aware of this topic." By deciding what action you expect the audience to take you can build your talk to drive towards this action. Talks that motivate the audience to action are more engaging and memorable than talks that simply describe. Some good example answers are
Contribute to an open source project.
Implement the technology or process you've come up with
Follow the best practices you've outlined
Practice how you play. Practicing your talk is key to being a great presenter. As much as possible, practice exactly how you plan to give the talk. Sand up and pretend you are on stage rather than sitting down. If you'll demo, build the demo first and practice the demo. Even practicing while wearing the outfit you plan to wear can help.
Give concrete examples. Real life details bring a talk to life. Examples help people to understand and internalize the concepts you present. For each of your points try to have a "for instance." As an example, "We recommend using this script to delete old logs and free up diskspace. For instance, one time our emails lit up as users were complaining about slow performance. Some were reporting tasks hanging for over an hour when they should have completed in less than a minute. It turned out we were out of diskspace because we had verbose logging enabled. Once we ran the script we saw performance return to normal levels."
Be mindful of your body language when presenting as it will impact the way the audience perceives your presentation. Move around the stage purposefully (don't pace or fidget). Make natural gestures with your hands, and maintain good posture to convey confidence and openness which will help you to better connect with your audience.

What does the corporate Events team handle?
Sponsored events (events with 5000+ attendees for NA, 3000+ for other territories and that also have a global audience (50% or more of audience is national or global). There are some exceptions. There are handful smaller events that we handle due to the nature of the audience, and the awareness and thought leadership positions we are trying to build out as a company). The primary goal is always driving brand awareness but that cannot be the only result.
We also serve as DRI for all internal Sales events- SKO's, Force Management planning, Rewards Travel, SQS, QBR's. Must be above 25 people attending for corp events involvement.
Corporate Events Strategy / Goals
For Sponsored Events: Get the GitLab brand in front of 15% of the event audience. 40,000 person event we would hope to get 4,000+ leads (10%) and 5% general awareness and visibility with additional branding and activities surrounding participation.
Human touches- Tracked by leads collected, social interactions, number of opportunities created, referrals, current customers met, and quality time spent on each interaction.
Audience Minimum Requirements- volume, relevance (our buyer persona, thought leaders, contributors), reach (thought leaders?), and duration of user/ buyer journey considered.
Work closely with demand gen campaigns and field marketing to ensure events are driving results and touching the right audience.
Exceed minimum threshold of ROI for any events that also have a demand gen or field component- 5 to 1 pipe to spend within a 1-year horizon.
Aim to keep the cost per lead for a live event around $100.
ROI Calculator we aim to make 5x ROI on pipeline focused events but this can be used to estimate what return we might get on an event.
Please review our events decision tree to ensure Corporate Marketing is the appropriate owner for an event. If it is not clear who should own an event based on the decision tree, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For event execution instructions, please see the Marketing Events page for detail instruction and the criteria used to determine what type of events are supported.
All swag requests, creation and vendor selection is handled by the Corporate Marketing team.
We aim to have our swag delight and/or be useful. We want to create swag that is versatile, easy to store and transport.
As a remote company with team members in over 50 countries - our swag often has to go on miraculous journeys.
With this in mind we try to ship things that are durable, light and that will unlikely get stuck in customs.
We strive to make small batch, limited edition and themed swag for the community to collect.
Larger corporate events will have custom tanuki stickers in small runs, only available at the specific event.
Region specific sticker designs are produced quarterly.
Our goal is to do swag in a way that doesn't take a lot of time to execute -> self-serve => web shop
