What the logos look like:
The Nelson City Council Graphic Standard Guidelines 2014 are a guide to Nelson City Council’s identity. They apply to all Council facilities, assets, publications, projects, and initiatives.
To ensure Nelson City Council’s brand is protected, follow the guidelines when preparing any materials.
Minimum size of logo, including clear area
- Tall logo no less than 30mm wide
- Wide logo no less than 40mm wide
Care must be taken to ensure that ‘te kaunihera o whakatū’ is large enough to easily read; the phrase should be at least as large as the ‘body’ text size used.
Size of logo when used with primary and secondary logos
When using the logo with other organisations' logos that are either co-sponsors (primary) or supporters (secondary)
- the HORIZONTAL logo must be at least the same HEIGHT as other primary logos, and larger than any secondary logos.
- the VERTICAL logo must be at least the same WIDTH as other primary logos, and larger than any secondary logos.
Secondary supporter logos must be less prominent, clearly indicating their secondary role by size and placement.
Don't crop or crowd the logo
The minimum clear space surrounding the logo is determined by the space between the bottom of Nelson City Council and the bottom of the byline. Please ensure no copy or images (apart from the background image or colour) intrude within this space.
Don't use logo on top of 'busy' background or poorly contrasting colour
Avoid use of logo on top of photo or other artwork that is too detailed to allow logo to standout (eg, white logo on yellow background).
When to use the logo
The logo must appear on all Council-published documents. If space prevents use of logo at legible size, the words “Nelson City Council” must be used in its place.

100% Cyan, 37% Magenta, 0% Yellow, 0% Black
