Quanex Logo Usage

Protected Space Requirements

The protected space is the minimum amount of space surrounding the logo. The logo should always be separated from other typography or design elements and be kept clear within this area.

Always position the logo for maximum impact and give it plenty of room to “breathe.” This will ensure the logotype’s presence and legibility. A MINIMUM amount of clear space must surround the logotype at all times. This space is equal to the capheight of the logotype (e.g. the “Q” in Quanex). In general, larger amounts of clear space should be kept for optimal visibility.ex_clearspace01.gif


Color Variations

The Quanex logo comes in four basic color variations; color with black tagline (2 PMS, CMYK and RGB), brushed silver, reversed and black and white. Consistent use of these formats will help build visibility and name recognition. Any modification or misuse of the colors would create confusion among our audience and diminish the identity’s impact. Consistency in the use of color and visibility of the logo will maximize its impact. Quanex Protected Space

Minimum Size Requirements

The following are the minimum sizes in which the logo may be reproduced, for both print and web applications. These reduced sizes still allow for legibility and brand identification.

  • For print applications, the recommended minimum size for the logo is .25".
  • For Web applications, the recommended minimum size for the logo is 40 pixels.

Incorrect Usage Requirements

The integrity of the logo must be respected at all times. Don’t stretch, condense or otherwise morph or manipulate it. Any modification of the logotype confuses its meaning and diminishes its impact.
