LOGO SIZE The cannot be used smaller than a certain size. It is important that the logo recieves the proper treatment in order for it to remian legible and clear. Therefore, the logo has rules on how small it can be used.
minimum size of logo
The main logo cannot be sized smaller than 27mm. If a smaller size is needed, then use the symbol logo.
We have a symbol logo to use incase the logo needs to decrease in size further than 27mm in width.
This logo can be used for any small or compact sizes, within the brands context and environment.
The symbol logo would therefore be an advantage for compact spaces, such as pencils, footers or small badges. The symbol logo is just as much a trademark sign for Chestnut as the main logo.
THE CHESTNUT COLOURS The Chestnut Colours are the 5 colours that Chestnut represents itself with.
Chestnut Colours prioritised by size
These are the trademark colours that we use to identify ourselves with and need to be present when Chestnut is communicating in any way.
Chestnut Peach - #FCCFBA
Chestnut Blue - #E7F5FD
Chestnut Orange - #F47538
Chestnut Pale Brown - #8C695A
Chestnut Pink - #F69081
These colours are to be used as guidelines, as opposed to a strict code, when communicating Chestnut. They must be present but not all need be at once and complimentary colours could be included.
The colours are, however, prioritized in this order and need to stay true to the correct ratio of colour.
