LOGO AND BRANDING ELEMENTS
LOGOTYPE – IMPARTNER
The Impartner name is made by combining the words of “Impart” and “partner.” Impart, because we bestow the qualities needed for a successful partner program. Partner, because that’s what we are to our clients and because we help our clients cultivate good “partner” relationships.
The “IMPART” of Impartner is bold to emphasize this aspect of the name. Bestowing qualities of an effective PRM.
CLEAR SPACE – There must be an area around the logo that remains clear of any graphic elements. This space is equal to the height of the “I” in the Impartner logo mark.
SPACE BETWEEN LOGOMARK AND TYPE – There must be an area between the logomark and logotype that is equal to the width of the “I” in the Impartner logo mark.
