Logo use example

Using the logo with yours

If Columbus is already part of your existing logo, a few simple treatment changes will freshen it to reflect the new branding. To maintain consistency, follow these simple guidelines.

Option 1

Good example

You can incorporate the new Columbus branding into your logo by changing the color of the 'us.'

Option 2

Better example

Place a five-point star over the 'u' and change the color of the 'us.' The star should be the same color as 'columb' and must be centered over the 'u.' The size relationship between the star and the 'u' from the original Columbus word mark should be retained.

Option 3

Best example

Integrate the official Columbus word mark into your logo. You may change the two colors of the word mark to match your logo, but you cannot alter its structure. The star must be the same color as the 'columb.'
