On all full-color communications, the color CCIU logo should be used. When color is not available, the CCIU logo is to be reproduced in grayscale or black and white. The logo should not be versioned into any colors other than those indicated below.
Different printing systems require different color specifications. When Pantone colors can be specified, use Pantone 208 C (burgundy) and Pantone 429 C (gray). When printing two-color documents please substitute Pantone 429 C with a 20% tint of Pantone 429 C. When Pantone colors cannot be specified, use the four-color CMYK process equivalents or the three-color RGB equivalents shown under the Pantone colors to the right. Four-color process equivalents are also called CMYK equivalents, which refer to the four primary colors used in printing: cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y), and black (K). RGB equivalents refer to a system for creating colors on computer monitors using a combination of the colors red, green and blue.
Web safe colors
Colors on the Internet are limited to a palette of 256 colors. These colors are created through HTML code (Hex) that uses a series of six numbers and/or letters or a combination of numbers and letters. The nearest matches to CCIU’s colors are 861F41 for Pantone 208 C and A2AAAD for Pantone 429 C.
If color is not available, a grayscale version of the logo is acceptable for use when reproducing the CCIU logo in one color. To ensure sufficient contrast, it is recommended that the grayscale version only is used against a white background.
Only when absolutely necessary should the reversed out to white logo be utilized. The CCIU brand is strongest when in color and should always be the first option.
The preferred size for the logo is 1 inch by ¾ inch but can be adjusted as needed (such as on brochures) not to result smaller than 0.375-inch height in print nor smaller than 32 pixels in digital formats. There is no maximum size limit, but use discretion when sizing the logo. It should not be the most dominant element on the page.
The CCIU logo must remain proportionally balanced. To scale the logo correctly, hold down the shift key while dragging a corner of the logo to the desired size. Never change the logo by compressing, expanding, distorting, or changing it in any manner.
If you find a need for alternate sizes, such as digital app icons, please contact Communications.
In order to maintain an appropriate amount of clear space around the logo, a minimum of .0167 inch of white space should border all sides of the logo.
Preferred placement for the CCIU logo is in any of the four corners of a particular piece, with greater preference placed to either bottom corner. This ensures clarity and consistency in presentation across all divisions and programs. When utilizing the logo in conjunction with the CCIU name, please utilize the bottom left corner to ensure appropriate text alignment.
When utilized in conjunction with a TCHS or BVA logo, the CCIU logo will play a secondary role in terms of size but should remain within one of the four corners, preferably one of the lower corners.
In most instances, it is preferred to have the full organization’s name associated with the logo. Please note that this is not considered a separate logo, but rather an approved enhancement to the logo. No other icons, type, or marks are approved to be used in conjunction with the logo.
When utilizing “Chester County Intermediate Unit” in conjunction with the logo, the text should preferably appear to the right of the logo. Depending on placement, one of the following two options can be used.
When horizontal space prohibits the use of the horizontal version, a stacked version may be utilized. In this instance, the text should appear under the logo and should be centered.
The approved tagline for use with the CCIU logo is “An Educational Service Agency.” In order to maintain consistency in positioning and size of the tagline, two separate logo file options with the appropriate lock-up has been created. The tagline should never be utilized outside the provided files.
