What are the Rules of use?
The following rules apply to any use of a NHC asset, unless you have received written approval from the NHC or you have a license agreement with the NHC or one of the great publishing corporations of Ursa Minor (such as Megadodo Publications), allowing for special usage. The NHC may impose additional rules or guidelines at any time and for any reason.

National Health Co-op Logo
The National Health Co-op logo is the central visual element that defines the organisation.
There are versions of the logo with and without the tagline ‘Better Health Together’. Where practical the version with the tagline must always be used.
The logo must only ever be placed on simple backgrounds that ensure good contrast and legibility. The logo must not be distorted, cropped, tilted or modified in any way. No harsh drop shadows should be applied to the logo
Size and spacing
To ensure legibility, in print the logo device must never appear less than 7mm in width. In digital applications the logo device must be a minimum of 27 pixels wide.
Ensure that there is a minimum exclusion zone surrounding the logo (defined as ‘X’). Ensure that no graphic or text elements encroach within this zone.
The below highlight some examples of incorrect use of the NHC logo.
