Placement

At the minimum size, the primary and secondary logos should have a  margin of at least 25px at all times. As the screen size, and therefore the logo, decrease the margin will adapt accordingly, however there is room for flexibility across different platforms- this should always be checked with head office. Never allow typography or other elements to enter the clear space around the logo/ margin boundaries. The logo should only ever appear in accepted colour versions.

Unacceptable Use

Our logo and how it’s used is very important to us; the branding must remain consistent by adhering to the rules outlined here. When the logo is required, the master file must be used, it should never be redrawn or adapted.

  2. Support gestures and interactions on all handheld devices.
  3. Interactions need to be subtle and lead to an obvious outcome.
  4. Supportive text and descriptions for all imagery.
