Along with its subtle background wave, the VIMS logo graphic letterform features graduated shades of VIMS blue and teal, suggesting the depths and movement of the coastal ocean. The logo serves as the primary visual cue for the VIMS brand and should appear prominently on every communication piece.

VIMS Logo Guidelines

As the primary visual cue for the VIMS brand, the logo should—whenever possible—appear on the front of every printed piece.

Size and Placement
Clear Space

To give the logo proper prominence, a reserved area surrounds it. This area should be free of imagery, graphics, or any other element that may interfere with the clarity of the logo. The minimum amount of clear space is in proportion to the logo size. 

Sizing

The logo should never be reproduced smaller than 1 inch in width.

What to Avoid
Separating Elements of Logo

Never separate the elements of the logo, move their position, or change their proportion.

Scaling of Logo

Never scale the logo disproportionately by changing its aspect ratio.

Rotation of Logo

Do not rotate the logo or run it at an angle.

Placement of Logo on Images

      

Never place the logo above textures or backgrounds that will impair the legibility.

Changing Logo Colors
