Business and community pillars

The pillar descriptor (name) is placed individually and in a clear proportion to the AO master brand logo (1). There are no ready-made logo files. Specifications: Suisse Int‘l Regular, letter spacing +10, color black.

Business and community pillars are exceptions when it comes to clear space, as the word mark can be positioned flexibly by the AO master brand.

The distance between the AO master brand and the edge remains the same as for the other logos (ie, one-half of the height of the master brand). What changes is the minimum distance to the bottom or to the right between the AO master brand and the word mark (2).

The minimum distance to the bottom is 75 percent of the height of the AO master brand. If the word mark is placed to the right of the AO master brand, the minimum distance is 150 percent of the height of the master brand (3).

The distance between the word mark and the edge is the height of the AO master brand (3).

Here too, the logo is placed asymmetrically. The distance between the logo and the top edge is never the same as the distance to the left edge.


1 The pillar descriptor (name) is not higher than one-third of the height of the master brand


2 Minimal clear space

3 Flexible positioning system

Business and community pillars, examples

The placement of the pillar descriptor (name) always depends on the medium. In most applications the pillars descriptor is aligned horizontally or vertically to the master brand logo.

In business communication such as business cards or stationery, the descriptor is integrated into the sender block.
