LOGO USAGE

Standard Options

Blue and yellow form the basis of TERI’s corporate color palette. The TERI logo consists of two basic elements: the yellow starburst and the blue “TERI”. Both elements should be used as specified. The color arrangements shown on the following pages are the only allowed iterations. Other combinations should not be created. Although several options are provided for flexibility, the TERI logo is most effectively displayed on a white background and in three colors as shown.

The use for each logo type is outlined below. Each logo type is available in either JPG for web-based marketing, and EPS for print material (except “reversed” logos, which are available in EPS format only).

Three-Color Blue and Yellow Positive Logo

The 3-color version should be used for all web-based marketing and when color printing is available.

Instructions for saving JPG versions of the logos:
Windows Users: Right-click on the image and select “Save Picture As”.
MAC Users: Ctrl + Click on the image and select “Download Image To Disk”

Two-Color Blue and Yellow Positive Logo

The 2-color version should be used when color printing is available, but three-color production is cost-prohibitive. In this case, the “SM” mark is the same color as the “TERI” mark.

One-Color Positive Logo

Use the black 1-color version when color usage is restricted or when printing in black and white.

Reversed Options

The reversed logo is only to be used with printed marketing materials. Certain designs or background colors require the TERI logo to be reversed or “knocked out.” The darker the background, the better the reversed logo will appear. The logo file used here is only available in an EPS file as it is a transparent image, allowing it to appear knocked out against the non-white background.

Two-Color Reverse Logo

This version should be used when color printing on a very dark background that will provide sufficient contrast.

One-Color Reverse Logo

Use this “white” 1-color version when color usage is restricted or when printing in black and white.

Do not switch the colors

Do not scale the star or logotype independently

Do not display the logotype without the symbol

Do not disrupt the aspect ratio of the logotype
