III. Using the Mark and Logo together The two distinctive graphics that make up The House of Katmandu™ brand are independent of one another. Only in rare occasions would they sit side by side. They do work together to complement and achieve the perception and tone for the entire experience. The House of Katmandu™ is the official name of the attraction itself. The Mark is the official Signature of the entire site. The Mark creates the feeling that encapsulates the brand. The Mark is meant to create the feel of the ancient, the mysterious, the treasured. When necessary to directly identify or promote the attraction, use the Logo. The options of color or pattern for the Mark are aimed at creating the overall mood for the specific audience, Vibrant colors or fun

One way to describe this treatment is to use a business card as an example, see below:
