For all permitted uses of our trademarks, you may not:

  • Alter the Reporters Committee’s logos in any way (distort, change colors, edit or recreate) without prior consent from RCFP.
  • Place a logo in such proximity to other content that it is indistinguishable.
  • Display our logos in a manner that implies a relationship, affiliation or endorsement by the Reporters Committee of your product, service or business.
  • Use the Reporters Committee’s logo in a way that is harmful, deceptive, obscene or otherwise objectionable.
  • Use our logos to, or in connection with, content that disparages us or sullies the Reporters Committee’s reputation.


Be sure to provide adequate space around the logo to maintain its legibility and integrity. The amount of space is proportional to the size of the logo. The minimum amount of space around all sides of the logo is equal to the distance between the bars.


Color brings visual interest to RCFP’s communications, helps to maintain a consistent look and feel and differentiates us from other organizations. To ensure accurate color reproduction, the colors for all applications should match the Pantone®, CMYK (process), RGB (desktop) or HEX (Web) specifications:


CMYK: 1.0000, 0.4455, 0.0000, 0.6039
RGB: 0, 56, 101
HEX: #003865

RCFP Garnet

CMYK: 0.0000, 0.9355, 0.6371, 0.5137
RGB: 124, 8, 45
HEX: #7c082d


CMYK: 0.0000, 0.1806, 0.7445, 0.1098
RGB: 227, 186, 58
HEX: #e3ba3a

When color or printing prohibits this, it may be used in all black or reversed out to white only — no other colors may be substituted. The logo can appear on color, illustration or photographic backgrounds as long as the legibility and integrity of the logo are not diminished.
