Logo colour usage

The Road Safety Trust logo should generally appear in full colour.

1. Spot/CMYK

The Road Safety Trust logo is ideally printed in two spot colours wherever possible. When unable to print in spot colour, CMYK versions of the logo should be used for colour consistency.

This treatment should only be used on white/light coloured backgrounds.

The ‘cross’ device is not a substitute for the logo.
