For Questions Regarding the Logo
Maintaining the integrity of the FalconStor Software and IPStor logos depends upon consistent and correct usage. The following guidelines are examples of how the FalconStor Software and/or IPStor logos should and should not be used. If you have any questions concerning the use of these logos, please contact our Marketing Department at 631.777.5188 or contact Corporate Marketing online.
The preferred application of the FalconStor Software and IPStor logos is in their original colors on a white background. The IPStor logo is comprised of the following spot colors: Red (PMS 186) and Blue (PMS 662). The FalconStor logo is: Blue (PMS 288).
There will be situations when the logos need to be printed in 4-color process, grayscale, or reversed out of a darker background. To maintain consistency and build brand awareness, no other color combinations are to be utilized. The logos may be printed on a colored background if there is sufficient contrast.
A monochromatic version of the FalconStor Software or IPStor logo is acceptable for use in single color printing applications such as newspaper advertising. Black is the preferred option.
Clear Space and Minimum Size
Clear space must be maintained on all sides of the FalconStor or IPStor logo in order to maintain the integrity of each logo and ensure its maximum impact in environments where it appears among other elements. The minimum clear space necessary is relative to the size of the logo.
Moreover, as logo size is significantly reduced, there is a point at which the logo becomes ineffective. By establishing a minimum size for the logos we ensure the logos are always prominent and readable. The FalconStor Software and IPStor logos should never be reproduced smaller than 1 inch across.
Photographic Background Options
When a FalconStor Software or IPStor logo needs to appear over a photograph, it must be positioned in such a way that there is even color behind the logo as well as proper clear space. The logos may appear in full color if the background is light enough to provide appropriate contrast; however, the logos must reverse out of dark photographs.
The FalconStor Software and IPStor logos should never be taken apart and recombined in any way to create new artwork. No part of a logo may be changed or re-sized in any way relative to the rest of the logo. The logo must only appear in a horizontal position.
