    Introduction to identity program

    Every organization has a specific visual identity, and each element of communication contributes to the overall impression people have of the organization.

    The purpose of these guidelines is to explain the components of the CCL visual identity program, to define its graphic design standards, and to illustrate how these standards are applied.

    Many of the standards depend on relative size, proportion, and position. These have been developed through careful consideration of many factors, both functional and aesthetic. Adhering to these graphic design standards will ensure continuity, a high standard of quality, and a clear, consistent identity for CCL.

    The CCL symbol has been designed to provide a bold, memorable mark to represent CCL in all forms of communication. Proper use of the symbol and how it is combined with the CCL name to form the CCL logo lockup are described on the following pages.

    Always use the original and approved art; never alter any aspect of it. Do not attempt to redraw or recreate the symbol.

    Lockup for light backgrounds This version of the logo is most suitable for use on white or light colored backgrounds.

    Lettering The letters for the name “CCL" have been specially designed and spaced. Do not replace with different lettering or try to recreate.

    The CCL logo lockup is the combination of the CCL symbol and a specially designed wordmark for the name “CCL.” Two versions of the lockup have been created, one for use on light colored backgrounds, and one for use on dark colored backgrounds.

    Always use the original and approved art; never alter any aspect of it. Do not attempt to redraw or recreate the lettering using computer fonts. The full CCL logo lockup should always be used. Never use the symbol separately from the wordmark.

    Logo lockup

    Lockup for dark backgrounds An alternate version of the logo has been developed for instances when it appears on dark or solid black backgrounds. The lettering for "CCL" appears in white, and the blue used within the symbol has been adjusted. Refer to the logo color specifications shown on page 08.

    Never use the lockup for light backgrounds on black or dark colors. Never use the lockup for dark backgrounds on white or light colors.

    To ensure its integrity and visibility, the logo should be kept clear of competing text, images, and graphics. It must be surrounded on all sides by adequate clear space, as shown in the diagram below.

    The logo should never appear smaller than .25" (6mm) when used in print materials, or 25 pixels when used in digital formats.

    Lockup spacing Shown below is the correct spacing between the symbol and the "CCL" wordmark. This relationship should never be altered.

    The use of color is an important aspect of the CCL identity. The primary color palette consists of the colors that make up the CCL logo. Pantone® spot colors, as well as CMYK process colors, are specified for print use. RGB specifications are for use with on-screen and web applications, and are provided for a consistent appearance between different media.

    Color palette, Primary

    CCL Blue PANTONE 2935 CMYK 100/52/0/0 RGB 0/87/184

    CCL Blue Alt. PANTONE 2172 CMY 85/40/0/0 RGB 0/118/206

    Black PANTONE Black CMYK 0/0/0/100 RGB 0/0/0

    White CMYK 0/0/0/0 RGB 255/255/255

    Primary logo color The full color version of the logo should be used whenever possible. When used on light colored or white backgrounds, the lockup for light backgrounds is used. When used on black or dark backgrounds, the alternate lockup for dark backgrounds is used. See page 06 for more information. Light background lockup

    CCL Blue (PANTONE 2935) Black

    Dark background lockup CCL Blue Alt. (PANTONE 2172) White

    Alternate logo color When it is not possible to use the full color version of the logo because of background color, material, or production method, the logo should be produced in solid CCL Blue, or reversed to all white. When printing in black and white only, an all black logo may be used.

    Metallic Colors When using the logo on special communication materials such as folders, packaging, invitations, or announcements, the logo may be produced in a matching CCL Blue foil, or silver and gold foil/inks.

    Color palette, Secondary

    The secondary color palette supports the CCL identity. The colors in the secondary palette are not to be used for the logo. These colors may be used within publications, brochures, electronic communications such as Microsoft Word® and PowerPoint® documents, and other promotional materials.

    Use on backgrounds

    Shown are examples of the correct way to use the logo on colored backgrounds and on printed materials. Always make sure that the color of the logo is in sufficient contrast to the background to ensure visibility.

    Always maintain a high standard for production values. Consideration should be given to the choice of paper stocks and materials wherever possible for printing and production processes.

    Shown are examples of the correct way to use the logo with photography. When there is not sufficient contrast between the full color logo and the background, it may be knocked out to all white. Place the logo in an area of the image that is not busy in order to avoid competition.
