BRAND Visual Identity
Altruism: An unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others
The visual identity for Altrua HealthShare combines modern and humanistic qualities to represent a new approach to the way that people care for one another.
Design for Altrua HealthShare should always begin with a clean and simple minimalistic approach, adding humanistic elements when necessary to keep design friendly, up-beat and member-focused.
The Primary logo should be used on light backgrounds only. This logo should be used when color is limited.
The Secondary logo should be used in conjunction with the Primary Color palette to represent the Altrua HealthShare brand. This logo may also be used if placement is needed above a dark background to provide contrast.
The ‘1-Color’ logo should only be used for print or fax purposes, when limited to one color.
Size & Spacing
Allow for the correct amount of white space when using the logo. The official logo files include a transparent canvas with the appropriate measure of white space. If your software does not recognize the included canvas, please use the height of the ‘r’ character stem from below the shoulder to create the correct spacing and keep all visual elements clear.
When designing with the logo, please do not make the art height smaller then 35 px for screen and 24 pt for print.
Please do not alter or add to the logo. Do not use drop shadows, or other filters to increase visibility. The Altrua HealthShare logo and elements must be clearly defined so that visual continuity stays intact.
Do Not Alter the Logo
ELEMENTS ASSOCIATED MARKS

This mark should only be used in special circumstances when it isn’t possible to convey full identity because of technical requirements.
