2019-20 LOGO GUIDELINES & INFORMATION

MARKETING GRANT RECIPIENTS

Social media ads do not require the use of the logo as long as the landing page of the grant recipient website has the logo in a prominent location. When utilizing the logo on print and TV advertisements, it is to be placed in the bottom center or bottom right of the ad.

 

The logo should always be used for optimum legibility. All print, billboard, digital, and TV ads should include the "Discover the Undiscovered" logo.

For Radio Ads: The radio spot must mention "Chesterfield County: Discover the Undiscovered."

ALL GRANT RECIPIENTS (MARKETING & CAPITAL)

The Discover the Undiscovered logo along with a hyperlink to www.discoverchesterfieldcounty.com should be predominantly displayed on the grant recipient’s website.

In order to receive reimbursements, grant recipients should adhere to the above guidelines. If any situations arise that prevent a grant recipient from using the Discover the Undiscovered logo, please contact the tourism office.

Questions about funding and logo usage should be addressed to:

BRANDING GUIDELINES, COLOR PALETTE & LOGO DOWNLOAD FILES

PNG - Transparent Background

PNG files are a lossless format, meaning that compression doesn’t affect the quality of the image. Unlike JPGs, which create artifacts and blur images at a certain point, a PNG file will always look at least as sharp as the original image. Unfortunately, PNG files also tend to be a bit larger than JPG files, especially when they’re high resolution. This could make them difficult to share to the Web, or between friends and family.

JPG - White Background

JPG compression is great if you’re just trying to send someone a picture through your phone or in an email, two situations where you might not necessarily want to send large files. Although most JPGs look fine from a distance under normal compression, there is a noticeable loss of quality whenever users zoom in on a JPG image.

EPS - Preferred for Print, Large Signs, Banners

EPS is a vector format designed for printing to PostScript printers and imagesetters. It is considered the best choice of graphics format for high resolution printing of illustrations. Vector graphics are a scalable, resolution-independent format composed of individual objects or shapes. Vector images can be resized easily without loss of quality.
