The DEKRA Logo is a Word-Image-Mark. It consists of the Image-Mark at the front and the DEKRA Word-Mark written in capital letters. Unlike the lettering, the Image-Mark can also be used on its own.
We use this Logo variant outside of an established DEKRA context: for example, for advertising banners, trade fairs, out of home, print ads, the website, and any other form of communication for positioning the brand.
We use the Image-Mark within an established DEKRA context, for example, as a favicon (on the website), on social media (profile picture), and in internal communication. In this case, the DEKRA context is already established, so we do not need a word and Image-Mark. Using the Image-Mark enhances the visual element of the DEKRA Logo.
The box can be used when this is necessary for technical or optical reasons.
