How to use the logo

The Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust logo is available in colour and mono. To ensure maximum visibility, always consider the background upon which it is to be placed. The colour version should always be used on a white background. The mono version (positive or reversed) should only be used when the colour version is not appropriate e.g. on a coloured background or in B&W publications.

Clear space

To ensure that the logo is clearly visible at all times, the 'clear space' surrounding the logo must not be encroached upon. This is a scalable measurement, where clear space increases with the logo size. Click here to view Brandmark usage - clear space rules.

Minimum size

A 'minimum size' rule exists to amaintain legibility of the logo. The logo (not including clear space) should never be less than 20 mm wide. This is a suitable size to use on an A4 sheet.


See Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust colour palette.
