IDENTITY THE LOGO
OUR LOGO Our logo is the most visible element of our identity Itâ€™s expresses the simplicity, clarity and coherence. It combines between the logo and typography to create three linked people around each other, shows how coherence and harmony they are, also reflects secure. The goal is to deliver the sense of home and family and attract the target audience. While it is a simple logo, we must treat it nicely. The following pages cover the correct usage to ensure the logo always looks its best.
LOGO CLEAR SPACE EVERYONE NEEDS A LITTLE PERSONAL SPACE To ensure that our signature versions are clearly visible in all applications, surround them with sufficient clear space free of type, graphics, and other elements that might cause visual clutter to maximize the recognition and impact of our identity. To ensure the integrity and legibility of the logo lock-ups, the area directly surrounding them should be protected. When the logo is used, a clear space 0.8 in the symbolâ€™s height should be maintained. In special circumstances when a 0.8 in clear zone isnâ€™t available or possible, use the second option of 0.326 in clear space.
