Restrictions on using the Visit Duluth logos
The Duluth logo is a key element of our brand identity. Consistent use of the logo is essential to maintaining our identity and gaining instant recognition across all marketing and media channels, along with representing our city nationwide.
The primary Duluth logo will appear on most communications. Note that this version has the North Star located centrally and above the letter ‘u’. It also does not include any taglines or secondary verbiage. Whenever possible, please use the full-color logo on acceptable color fields. Use the reversed-out version when spacing and readability become an issue. In one-color applications, white is the primary logo color over dark colors and any photography overlays. The black variation is used sparingly and only when necessary.
The region logo marks are used strategically in graphical content materials or when specifically talking about that location. They are meant to describe and call out the different regions of Duluth and provide guidance to visitors. Some examples of when these marks should be used include maps, visitor guides and any other directional materials.
To protect the integrity of the logo, be sure to account for details such as safe area, scaling and minimum size.
Duluth is part of the state of Minnesota and Explore Minnesota Tourism. Both logos should be present on any specific pieces that communicate both brands or are in partnership with each other. The Duluth brand and Explore Minnesota brands should be stacked side by side or vertically with a dividing line incorporated. To create a pleasing layout, the divider line should be half the height of the Duluth logo and centered between the two logos evenly. You can use this same rule in any case where there is a partner logo needed.
The Visit Duluth logo is used on behalf of Visit Duluth only on items such as letterheads, official documents and situational instances. It is not to be used in any marketing materials.
