Main usage Logo variations and positioning

Logotypes/... EPS/PDF

The Chestnut brand colours are salad green, yellow and light brown. There is no standard or regular logo colour. Three colours can be optionally chosen by the designer. It depends on the colours of the art work. The combination of the colours is more likely to be used for big design structures or booklets for example. One colour is preferred for smaller design structures, for example business cards. The Chestnut logotype’s colour is a subject to changes, depending on the colour of the palette of the artwork.

Logo positioning

Logotypes/templates/... EPS

This positioning of the template allows the Chestnut logo to be placed into any other artwork without any problems. The chosen logotype has to be fixed into the yellow area and saved an *eps and fixed to the artwork. Logotypes/templates/logo_horisontal_allow_border.eps

No text or image can cross the blue line. The size of the template changes when the logo size changes as well. Logotypes/templates/logo_vertical_ allow_border.eps

How the logo would look in the real life

Logo usage

The background for the logotype can be of any type: soft or rough, dark or light. But for better perception and readability soft tones, blank colors and gradients are recommended with less attention to patterns. The reason for this is to reach maximum readability through the contrast.

White or light background Logotypes/logo_bw_black.eps Logotypes/logo_brown.eps

Logo for darker background Logotypes/logo_bw.eps Logotypes/logo_yellow.eps

The logo also works fine against textured patterns. The design should always consider the contrast between background and logo ensuring logo sticks out

Contrast is very important, yeah

For centuries A bit of history of this brand

For centuries there were people-chestnuts who have been created to help people, but with the main limit of being useful only once in life within two years. They have been created to help to prevent people’s death from cancer, heart attack etc. With time people-chestnuts have been forgotten by the people. The Chestnut company was founded in 2009.
