Logo Style Guide

General Information
  • The logo lock-up is the combination of Keystone, the logotype and the department name as a single unit. The proportions of this unit should be altered in any way. 
  • The keystone is the most recognizable aspect of the commonwealth brand and should not be altered in any way from the formatted design. The graphic treatment inside the Keystone is used to represent individual departments within the Commonwealth brand. This representation can use an image, text, or abstract shape. When used alone, the Keystone is an icon. The Keystone icon itself should not be altered in approved design or ratio. 
  • The logo will be used "left-aligned" with the icon to the left and text to the right, "center-aligned" with the icon in the middle and the accompanying text beneath the icon, and as the icon only without associated text. 
Font & Text Information
  • "Pennsylvania" is set in Felbridge Bold. The template font size is the equivalent to 27 pt. The tracking between the letters is zero. All letters are lowercase. 
  • The department name is Felbridge Regular and always appears in all caps. 
  • If you do not have the fonts available, please use Tahoma or Ariel. If selected, we will substitute with approved font types.
  • The text location, text colors, and the font size of the text should all remain unchanged.
