LOGO

The Citadel logo is made from a custom drawn typeface. The logo is based on a very clean, modern typeface with custom serifs. The Citadel logo should always be shown in this typeface. No other typeface is acceptable. This logo should be shown in pantone 16-4529 TPX the web color is R: 0 G: 174 B:239.

The Citadel logo should be shown in its primary form whenever possible. However if another option is needed these are the other acceptable variations. No other varitions besides these four and the Citadel primary logo should be used.


LOGO & TAGLINE These things about the tagline should never be changed: The tagline will always be set in ITC Avant Garde Gothic Std. The tagline will always be written in all caps. The tagline should always be under the Citadel logo. The tagline should always start at the far left edge of the “A” and end at the right edge of the “L”. THE EXPERIENCE YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR

THE EXPERIENCE YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR The logo can be shown with and without the tagline, but the tagline is never to be shown without the logo. However if the logo is shorter than 2.5” the tagline is to be left off because it becomes too small to read.

TYPEFACES

Avant Garde Gothic Std is the primary typeface for this brand. This typeface was chosen because it is sleek, modern and has a variety of weights. All the line weights to the right also have a condensed, oblique and condensed oblique option.

There is no secondary typeface for this brand. If a different typeface is used we will have to throw you in our dungeon, you won’t like our dungeon.

ENDTAG The Citadel endtag is a series of frames that have a pixelated version of the Citadel logo fading in and out at rapid speed. The final frame is the normal logo fading in with the pixelation removed. The endtag is set to the sound of a film reel and the fading frames are there to mimic the starting up of a projector at the beginning of a movie.

The endtag is four seconds long. It can be used at the end of commercials, on the web, info videos or any visual media that makes sense. Use your brain if it makes sense to add the endtag, add it. If it doesn’t make sense or looks bad, don’t do it, don’t make our endtag look bad.

A digital version of the endtage can be viewed at
