Primary Logo

Ars. primary logo is the one with rounded black solid rectangle, with white wordmark in the middle. This is the most preferred logo to be used, it can be used optimally on light-colored background.

Secondary Logo

The secondary logo is to be used in dark backgrounds. The secondary logo has rounded black solid rectangle with white outline, and white wordmark in the middle.

Special usage

If due to some specific technical difficulties, such as manual printing, installation issues, or special material used, that made the primary and secondary logo not ideal, this alternative can be used.

The logo can only be presented with a black outline and black wordmark, or white solid rounded rectangle with black wordmark in the middle.

But this option is not recommended, to maintain a consistent visual identity so Ars. can be found easily across all platforms and media.

Minimum Clear Space

To maintain clarity, and to make sure the logo can be identified easily, a clear space around the logo must be placed.

The clear space around the logo is equal to half of the width of the logo itself.

Minimum sizes

A minimum size is important to ensure the legibility of the logo, without losing any element or form, so the logo can be identified easily.

For digital applications, the minimum is 34px.
For printed applications, the minimum is 1cm/10mm.

Examples

Modifying the font, color, composition, and shape of the logo is not allowed.
Use only the logo provided here.

  • Do not change the color

But there are several things that must be considered to make sure it can be scanned well;

  • In print, the minimum size is 20mm
  • In digital applications, the minimum size is 100px
  • The QR Code must use dark colors to maintain contrast (e.g. black, dark blue)
  • White background is highly recommended
