Proper Logo Placement

Ensuring a logo is clearly visible requires some attention to the placement in relation to text, graphics, and other logos. The amount of white space surrounding the COL logo should be equal to the height of the capital O. This provides a reference point that can scale with the logo.

Logo Fonts

The COL logo uses two specific fonts, Arial Regular and Roomy Bold. There are no acceptable substitutions within the logo. Other font variants are allowed in COL materials on a case by case basis. Further explanation of font usage is below.

Logo Sizing

When sizing the COL logo to fit your needs, care must be taken to ensure the aspect ratio is always maintained. Holding down the shift key while scaling is the best way to keep the logo from appearing stretched or compressed. Never use the COL logo at a width smaller than one inch.
