Color Combinations The logo can be used as a powerful tool for communication if communicated consistently and with repeatedly. Being the most powerful visual element within our brand we can strengthen our overall brand by representing it on the right backgrounds. Blue
MS Office (R/G/B)

Long logo with descriptor
Long logo without descriptor
Clear Space To protect the strength and integrity of the logo, a clear space, free of any other visual elements, should be maintained. This includes additions of country/LC names, changing background colors, or adding a shadow. The only exception is with the global descriptor. In the example below, the unit of measurement for clear space equals the height of the people. The clear space on the right side is 1 unit. The clear space on the left, bottom, and top is 0.5 units.
Logo Placement and Size – for MS Office, web and promotion tools The recommended placement for the logo is to bleed off the left or bottom side of the page and cover 80 percent of the page. The logo should be placed prominently on any materials and should not be placed as a background, within text, or underneath text or images.
On A4 pages – both portrait and landscape – the height of the logo should be at least 8 millimeters. We recommend 1.5 units from the logo to the upper or lower edge of the page (see illustration). For other page sizes, follow the 80% recommendation and use the downloadable vector format (.wmf) to resize at optimal proportions and without quality loss. The use of the descriptor under the logo is optional however when you decide to use one, always use the global descriptor.
