Logo guidelines are clear and simple rules about how logos of brands should be presented. They are typically as very detailed, from the size, color and font, to how companies want it to be used by others. To help give you a better idea, we’ve gathered a few logo and trademark guidelines from brands such as Twitter, Facebook and the National Association of Realtors©.
- Twitter.com provides images of the Twitter bird for different specifications (e.g. for light or dark backgrounds).
- Usage of the Twitter bird include making sure it faces right.
- You must capitalize the “T” in Twitter or Tweet.
- Facebook.com provides the Facebook logo, the Facebook “Like” Button and the “F” logo.
- The Facebook “Like” Button must be used in connection with the Like button social plugin when being used online. You may use the Like Button as is in offline advertising.
- The use of the Facebook logo is generally not allowed but you may request special permission.
- The Facebook “F” logo is used to promote your Facebook group or page and should not be used to link to the Facebook login page.
