Logo location and banding
The logo must appear on all information and communications relating to Hampshire County Council.
On printed publications, it must be located on the front cover, in the bottom left corner in a band. The logo and band create a clearly defined area that must be proportionate to the size of the publication. This helps to maintain the integrity of our logo.
The generic web address (www.hants.gov.uk) should also appear in the band, in Gill Sans bold 15.5 point size. It must sit in the bottom right corner, in line with the lower edge of the logo - see specifications below. Where partners' logos appear in the band, the web address can be included in a narrow band immediately above.
The band must:
- form a solid area of colour that is distinct from the rest of the design through the use of different colours or a thin line along its top edge
- finish with a straight line at the top with no interruptions or fading
- only include our logo and generic web address, or partners' logos where appropriate
- extend across the full width of the page.
Previously, some corporate publications didn't have to include the band when the whole cover was printed in corporate blue. This is no longer the case. The banding must be applied in all cases.
If you are binding your own publication, please move the logo 10mm to the right within the band to allow room for the binding system.
Where it is not possible for a design to bleed off the page, for example in Word and other documents created and printed off in the office, the band is not necessary but the location of the logo is in the standard position of bottom left-hand corner and the www.hants.gov.uk web address in the right corner.
Please see the Microsoft Office webpage for more information on use of Word, PowerPoint, etc.
