Protect Your Brand…
Administrative assistants and sales staff snag logos from the corporate website, change the color, stretch them and use them on everything from brochures to social media profiles. The longer this practice is allowed to continue the more it will cost the company. Soon you have diluted image awareness and your brand is compromised. If this is happening in your company you need to stop it. The best way to start is by establishing and distributing company-wide standards.
