Not sure which logo best suits your needs? Use the outline below to narrow down your selection. As a general rule, CMYK images are for print-use, whereas RGB images are better for use on digital platforms. Pantone 2747 refers to the specific shade of blue for the HLF logo we encourage most grantees to use as standard.

Quick guide to file formats:

JPG

  • Raster image format. Consists of pixels which makes them difficult to scale without loss of quality
  • Uses lossy compression. Every time the file is edited/saved it loses image quality
  • This also makes it better for accommodating smaller file sizes
  • Does not support transparency

PNG

  • Raster image format. Consists of pixels which makes them difficult to scale without loss of quality
  • Uses lossless compression. It does not suffer a loss of quality when edited/saved
  • This is usually larger in file size but of better picture quality than jpg files
  • Supports transparency

EPS

  • Can be treated as vector files. These are defined by mathematical formulae
  • These be scaled in size and manipulated without loss of quality
  • Can only be manipulated by graphic design software (e.g. Adobe Photoshop)
  • Supports transparency
