Logo usage and implementation guidelines

At Cint we strive to design following two rules:

Consistency & Clarity

Applying consistency to design means to set rules and stick to them, as consistency always overrides everything else with one exception. If being consistent produces unclear results then it is clarity which overrides consistency and dictates that you go back to the drawing board. Let’s look at some of the rules we set when implementing our logo and brand.

Let it breathe

Don’t cram it next to text or the edges of the page or picture. Leave some space around it. 1/5 of the logo’s width on each side and 1/2 of the logo’s height above and below.

Let the Cint logo breathe with spacing

Lean it left

The logo is ‘left heavy’ so when you place it it is preferable that it rests on the left side of the page or picture. Exceptions are allowed. In that case follow the guidelines below.

Using taglines? Stay consistent

Cint logo with tagline should be used when appropriate. You can find versions of the logo including the tagline in the download pack at the top or bottom of this page.

In case you are creating your own logo and tagline make sure you apply consistent spacing.

Proportions matter

Try to keep the same logo proportions in relationship to the media it is in and remember, a logo can alwasy be smaller so that it can allow the message to be the focus.

Additionally keep in mind that the job of a logo is not to be in your face at all times. If you stay consistent with your design and style then it will be the entirety of your design piece that will tell the audience it is you; the logo is just a finishing touch.

Proportions matter in Cint logo placement

Avoid monochrome

The logo comes in two versions, a positive and a negative, but both have the orange detail on the letter C. Unless absolutely necessary stay away from making the logos monochrome. Again, rather change the background than the logo.

Avoid monochrome Cint logos

Contrast is your friend

When placing the logo on pictures or backgrounds make sure it is clearly readable by ensuring the contrast between logo and background is as high as possible. Select the right logo version for the right background and situation and consider changing the placement of the logo, or even the entire background, if readability is not great.

Tip: if a picture has a lot of orange or yellow elements, place the logo so that the orange bit does not overlap these sections or readability will be compromised (remember the clarity rule?).

Tip: if you have a picture with light colors go for the dark version of the logo. Avoid white logo on light yellow and similar combinations. Same goes for the opposite.
