Logo violations

Why is using the correct logo so important?

It’s simple, really. The Pella brand logo — also called the Pella bull’s-eye — stands for the Pella brand. It represents the quality of our products, our people, our process and our service. And since the foundation of building a brand is consistency, it’s important that the Pella logo always meets the guidelines in this book.

Can I use the Pella logo for sponsorship or co-branded events?

Pella's Marketing Communications Department will be happy to assist you with approval and the materials needed.

Show our true colors.

Pella’s official brand colors are yellow and black. We recommend you visually match the yellow to a PMS 115C (Pantone Match System) color swatch to ensure accurate reproduction. When printing 4-color process, do not convert PMS 115C yellow into CMYK values. This will give you an incorrect yellow. Please use the CMYK values listed below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ACCENT OR BACKGROUND COLORS ONLY

Never use these colors as part of the logo.

It's the Rule.

The approved Pella logo has a white rule around it. This rule is built into the logo and will size up proportionately when you scale the logo. The rule is not visible on a white background. If the logo you have does not include the white rule, contact Pella for an approved logo. Do not add a rule.

How do I use the Pella logo correctly in my layout?

The logo can be placed over a solid colored background with no gradient.

Watch for the white rule.

The logo can be placed over a solid black background with no gradient.

Watch for the white rule.

 

 

When placing the logo over a photo, make sure the photo does not compete with the legibility of the logo. Pick an area of the photo that is not busy so the logo will stand out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whenever possible, allow a clear space around the logo that is equal to 1/4 of the width of the bull's-eye. Do not crowd it with text — this will distract from the logo.
