The primary version of our logo is two-color: blue and gray. However, there may be instances when the logo can be used as one-color or reversed out in white.
One-Color Option (Blue) — Sometimes a one-color version of the logo helps with readability. When that is the case, it is acceptable to use an all-blue version.
Reversed Option — When the logo needs to be placed on a dark background, it is acceptable to use a reversed (white) version of the logo.
LOGO FILE TYPES
Most often you will need either a .png or .eps version of the logo.
- .eps is scalable, it is a very large file so it is appropriate for things like large banners.
- .png file type can have a transparent background, making it ideal for most web applications.
See the table for more examples of ideal uses for each file type.
