Visual identity standards for external users

Logo usage

Logo free space

To maximize logo impact, the logo should be surrounded by free space (see example below). The larger the free space around the logo, the greater the visual impact. As a rule, leave at least “2x” of free space around all edges of the logo; wherein “x” is the height of the circle in the brandmark.

Minimum size

In order to ensure legibility and recognition of the logo, the logo should be at least 0.5” high.

Logo variations

The logo is available in the following four colour variations.

Whenever possible, use the two-colour logo; this is the preferred version. Use the two-colour logo on white or light gray backgrounds, or photos. Avoid using this logo on background colours like green or orange; as the brandmark’s visual impact will be affected.

When a one-colour logo is required, use the one-colour (PMS 316) or white logo, depending on the background colour. Use the one-colour logo on white or light-coloured backgrounds or photos that provide sufficient contrast. Use the white (reverse) logo on dark-coloured backgrounds or photos.

The black logo should only ever be used where only black ink can be used (laser printer, newspaper, fax cover sheet, or photocopier).
