Campaigns/Publicity style guide
From Pirate Party UK Wiki
These guidelines are intended to assist in designing promotional materials for the Pirate Party UK, including posters, pamphlets and CD labels ect. Party stationary has already been created and approved for more information or to request these materials please contact the campaigns office. By keeping within these guidelines, we can assure a consistent and professional corporate identity as a party. Like all rules, sometimes they need to be bent or broken, but in general sticking to them is a recommended.
When using the Logo we need to create a unified image across publicity material to help build brand awareness. Remember just because you know that the emblem goes hand in hand with the Pirate Party name, voters don’t. So always try, where possible, to put the emblem alongside the text. It is also highly recommended to use the ready-supplied logo files as custom designs of these files leads to changes in line widths, placement of text relative to the symbol, and so on. which weakens the recognition of the logo.
To use these files it's best if you download a vector editor such as Inkscape and use it to export the correct sized image for your needs, this will help prevent any pixellation in the images during scaling and make sure that the Logo is always seen in its highest quality.
