IIBA® logo is the official identifying mark of the IIBA brand. In addition to the logo, the orange circle/dot must be used sparingly and should stand out as the main visual brand element.
When another language is used with the logo the text is set in the same style as the English language version using IBM Plex Sans. The logo remains unchanged.
The primary colours represent IIBA’s brand, as such these colours must be present and consistent across all communications and materials.
IIBA orange is defined as Pantone (PMS 1595 C)
In print, IIBA orange should be printed as a spot colour (PMS 1595 C) whenever possible.
On the Web, # D86018 is used on white and reversed white when used against a solid colour where there is sufficient contrast.
Dark Blue (PMS 547 C)
Our secondary palette complements the primary palette. These colours should be used as accents and therefore not dominate a design.
Medium Blue (PMS 3145 C)
Light Grey (PMS 427 C)
IIBA’s official fonts are IBM Plex sans and Roboto Condensed (sans serif). These fonts are to be used in all printed materials. Using this font in all printed material will help to establish a consistent look and feel for all of our communications.
If these fonts are unavailable Calibri, Arial (sans serif) and Helvetica (sans serif)) may be used in their place. These fonts should also be used by anyone who does have access to IBM Plex Sans or Roboto Condensed when creating visual communications such as sales letters, presentations and e‐mails.
IIBA’s signature logo should be used on all official IIBA publications, websites (iiba.org and Chapter websites), and on promotional materials for events where IIBA is the primary sponsor.
The logo should not be altered. The logo is a trademark and uses other than official IIBA and IIBA Chapter materials may violate our intellectual property policies.
Sizing, Minimum Length
The tagline logo comprises the two-line (stacked) wordmark. In print, the recommended width is 1.5 inches (9 picas) for readability. On the web, the recommended width is between 150 and 200 px.
The acronym signature should be used in cases where the primary signature is not required. All logos may not be smaller than half an inch in length (0.5”) for readability.
The recommended width is 3 inches (18 picas). On the web, the recommended width is between 300 and 350px.
The tagline logo is designed to be placed left aligned. Text should align with either the left side of the logo or the left edge of the wordmark. Nothing may touch the logo.
Space should be left around the tagline; at a minimum, the space should be equal to the height of a capital letter at any given size (1/4” or 6.35mm). This applies to both the tagline logo and acronym signature. If the signature used has to be centered or in close proximity with centered text, increase this space so that the text does not look-off center to the eye when mathematically on center.
No changes can be made to the logo or the placement of the registration mark or trademark. Treat it as an image that may not be touched or changed.
