Design Standards for USSB New Logo:

  • Pantone Yellow 108 is the official color for the new USSB logo.

  • When necessary, Pantone cool gray may be substituted for the yellow; for newspaper use, a screen of black or, alternatively,white will suffice.

  • The background should be simple, avoiding conspicuous patterns such as stripes, dots, flowers, or other ornaments.

  • Size of the logo will depend on the function of the printed piece. Judgement should always be exercised. Logos that are too small appear superfluous; too large are irritating to the viewer.

  • Logo should be dear of any unrelated pictorial or typographic material.

  • Logo should always look functional and useful, and not merely decorative. The correct proportion is always a matter of contrast, sensitivity, and good design and business judgement.

  • At the introduction of any new design, emphasis should always be given to the logo until it becomes familiar to the general audience.

  • A logo is a silent salesman and a powerful business companion. Therefore, it is essential that it is always shown with great care and dignity.

  • The effectiveness and longetivity of a logo is largely dependent on how well its implementation is policed. Such an operation is not simply a question of dictatorship but of understanding.

  • The ultimate appearance of the new USSB logo may not be altered or distorted in any way for print or TV.
