Our logo is a valuable asset and is an integral part of our corporate identity. Our logo is how people recognize us and we must treat it properly. The following sections descibe proper use of the PPG logo and signatures.
|The correct alignment and constraint area for constructing a logotype or signature with one line is shown on the left. The vertical signature is the preferred form, although both vertical and horizontal signatures are correct. The maximum length for one line is 30 characters, including punctuation and spaces. All graphic elements must align correctly. |
- For a logotype, here is how to determine the constraint area. Measure the height of the capital letter, called “c,” a measurement in inches or millimeters. The empty area surrounding the logotype (called the area of non-encroachment) must be at least as much as that measurement (“c”).
- For a signature, here is how to determine the constraint area. Measure the height of the logo, called “x-space,” a measurement in inches or millimeters. The empty area surrounding the logo(called the area of non-encroachment) must be at least half that measurement (“½ x”).
Keep the area of non-encroachment free of other graphic elements, including typography, illustrative material, other logos or the edge of a working area (such as trim edges of paper and borders).
