Primary Logo and Usage

Explanation of Kensington logo placement.

There are two groups of icons: system (lo-fi) and mid-render. They go from little detail to very detailed, respectively, and are used for various sizes and purposes, defined in the graphic. To ensure the best quality, web files should be SVG, and print files should be vectors.

Building system (lo-fi) and mid-render icons

To build a system (lo-fi) and mid-render icon, you need to reduce the meaning of it to its minimal form. Make sure to use a 1px stroke. To avoid distorting an icon, position icons “on pixel” by making the X and Y coordinate into integers, without decimals. All corners and stroke endings have a rounding.
