    Colour is an integral component of NIE’s overall Corporate and Visual Identity. The vibrant palette of Blue, Red and Yellow projects an image of dynamism, progressiveness and confidence. Corporate colours should be consistently applied across all corporate collateral and literature.

    The corporate colours described here follow the international Pantone Matching System (PMS), with equivalents for Process, Websafe and RGB illustrated. Note that process colours do not always present accurate colour expressions, hence using PMS inks for reproduction work is advisable.

    Usage

    One-Colour and Reverse-White Logo Applications

    The Masterbrand Logo should be applied in the original corporate colour palette whenever possible.

    When background colours interfere with the dynamism of the Masterbrand Logo, or when printing/cost constraints prevail, it can be applied as:

    1. A one-colour application using only the corporate colour palette, or
    2. A reverse-white application preferably using only the corporate colour palette as a background.

    In these cases, the corporate blue would be the preferred choice of colour to be applied as the logo colour or as a background.

    All guidelines are applicable to both the Primary and Secondary Format logos.

    Proportions
    1_3-logo_configurations-proportions  

    The Masterbrand Logo, both primary and secondary, should always be reproduced in the proper shape and proportions, irrespective of its display sizes.


    Minimum Clearance Area
    1_3-logo_configurations-minimum_clearance_area  

    To ensure proper recognition, the Masterbrand Logo should always be isolated from other elements. This minimum clearance area is to maximise the exposure of NIE’s brand image.


    Minimum Display Sizes

    1_3-logo_configurations-minimum_display_sizes-v02

    The Masterbrand Logo must be clearly visible whenever used. To ensure legibility, always observe the minimum display sizes when applying on different media.

  • Using the Masterbrand Logo against background colours that interfere with its dynamism and design is prohibited.

    In general, the Masterbrand Logo should be clearly displayed in the NIE corporate colours against a white, light coloured or uncluttered background.
