.CO Brand Guidelines
The .CO Brand Manual has been prepared to ensure the integrity of our identity. It is imperative to follow these guidelines to help us maintain an effective and consistent standard in our communications.
To ensure consistency, the brand mark should always be reproduced from master electronic files. Download the Brand Guidelines here.
Misuse of the .CO Brand: Care must be taken to ensure correct and consistent reproduction of the .CO Brand mark in every application. Incorrect use of our brand compromises the brand's integrity and effectiveness. Some common misuses are listed here:
- Do not change the orientation of the brand mark
- Do not move the elements of the brand mark
- Do not move or rotate elements of the brand mark
- Do not stretch or compress the brand mark
- Do not change the shape of the brand mark
- Do not use colors that are outside of the approved color palette
- Do not change the typography of the brand mark
- Do not add other elements to the brand mark (this includes adding the brand mark to your own professional brand or logo, to create a new brand mark)
- Do not enclose the brand mark in any shape
Use of the .CO Tagline: In many marketing applications it is appropriate to use the .CO Tagline, Create Your Opportunity. The tagline evokes the spirit of the brand and builds a link to online capabilities for names already used on the traditional .com, .net and other domains.
- The full color logo with the tagline should appear on a white background
- To ensure tagline legibility on color backgrounds, use the white logo
Co-Branding with the .CO Logo: Certain layouts require a co-branding with .CO Partners. Make all of the logos visually equal in size. The height of the co-branded logos must not exceed the height of the .CO logo. The .CO logo should never touch another logo, be contained within another logo or made to look as a direct part of another logo/brand mark.
Website links to the .CO Logo: There may be instances that the .CO brand mark is linked to another website or URL. All websites or web pages that are linked to the official .CO logo should be either Domain Marketing Ventures owned web properties and/or pre-approved websites or pages by the Corporate Media & Communications department. For information on how to obtain pre-approval for your website or page to link with the official .CO brand mark, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
