  • The logo should be used in its entirety with no alterations or additional elements added to it.

Accessibility

The logo must always have good contrast with the background to ensure maximum impact and accessibility.

Spacing and Size

In order to maximize its visual presence the logo requires a surrounding area clear of any other graphic elements or text. Always allow at least this amount of clear space around the logo. It is important that this rule is observed and the exclusion zone is maintained at all times.

The recommended minimum clearance is to protect the logo. The logo will appear on many different applications and formats and this will help to give it clarity and presence. This is not a placement guide. It is a minimum only.

Logo size consistency is important when producing a wide range of communications.

Placement

The logo always appears in a set size and position on all our communications.

Minimum size

Our logo must be clearly visible and reproduced consistently. For this reason, a minimum size has been established. The size is 1.5 inches measured across the width of the logo.
