Usage Guidelines

Minimum size

example of minimum printed logo size

To maintain legibility, the minimum size of the logo for printed materials is based on the overall width being no less than 1" wide. 

Minimum padding

Example of padding around logo

A minimum amount of padding equal to the width of the counterspace in the lowercase "e" should be maintained around all sides of the logo. Other information such as copy, images, or graphic elements should not overlap the logo's clear space.

Proportional Scaling

When scaling the logo up or down, it should be done proportionately. For instance, the logo should never be stretched 200% horizontally and 150% vertically, nor rotated in any way. Proportional resizing can be done by holding the shift key while dragging to resize.
