of Excellence.

This manual has been designed for easy

These standards ensure a consistent
global presentation of the Pizza Hut
identity, which is critical to the success
of our brand for these reasons:

The Pizza Hut logo and brand
symbols represent the essence of our
brand, and instill loyalty in customers.
Our logo brand symbols are
protected by IP laws which guard
against infringement and copying of
the Pizza Hut concepts.
Inconsistent usage of the Pizza Hut
logo and other brand symbols could
weaken and dilute the message to
consumers about the brand.

mation presented in this manual, please

2.0 Our Logo

Brand Standards
Setting the Standard.

This section introduces the main com-
ponents of the Pizza Hut Brand identity.
These include our logo which highlights
our red roof tradition, as well as vibrant
colours that speak to the freshest
ingredients in every meal we prepare.
Also in this section a secondary set of
colours that are contemporary and
appealing to our customers, and work
well with the primary colours found in
our logo.
We also provide some typeface standards
which help with continuity of our brand
as we communicate to both external
and internal audiences. Collectively these
standards will help you present and pro-
mote the Pizza Hut brand with clarity and
consistency, sending a powerful message
about our quality, freshness and leadership.

2.1a Master Logo

Brand Standards
The Master Logo.

The Pizza Hut logo is the key to our Roof Icon
brand identity. It’s designed to convey
a clear and simple message: Pizza Hut
is a place where delicious, high quality
fresh food is available in a fun, upbeat
atmosphere.
The Pizza Hut Master Logo is a vertical

Green Spot
arrangement of four basic elements:
The Red Roof: the symbol
of our restuarant heritage
The Pizza Hut name
The Yellow Underline
The Green Spot
Our 4-colour Master Logo has the

Logotype
greatest visual impact and should be used
on a white background whenever possible.
Alternate versions of the logo have been
developed for exclusive use on signage,
premiums and wearables. Please see the
Enhanced Dine In Manual for signage specs
and the Premium and Wearables section
(5.0) of this manual for the alternative Underline
formats.

2.1b Reverse Logo

Brand Standards
Reverse Logo Usage.

The Pizza Hut Logo will at times be
placed in an environment where the
background colour is not the preferred
white. We have specific rules for how the
logo rests on a patterned background (see
2.7 Background Control in this manual) and
guidelines for solid coloured backgrounds
as well.
Background colours should be confined
to our branding set of colours. We offer
a primary colour set and a secondary or
supportive set of colours (see 2.3a Colour
Palette in this manual). There are dark
and light palette colours to choose from.
When in question, it is best to use Pizza
Hut Black as a solid background colour as Reverse Logo_4 Colour
demonstrated to the right. If you decide
to choose one of the darker secondary
colours, you may do so with the reverse
logo.
A complete list of logos and supportive
brand elements are located in sections

2.2 Clear Space

Brand Standards
Clear Space.

The integrity of the Pizza Hut Master
Logo relies on a clear and legible
presentation. To provide the proper
setting and to comply with trademark
standards, the logo must be surrounded
by space that is clear of graphic or
typographic elements. This space is
called “clear space.”
“X Height”
The Pizza Hut logo clear space is
defined as “X height” of the “i”
that resides inside our logo.

Minimal Size

The logo must be flexible in size to
accomodate a variety of demands for use.
To insure readability and maintain integrity, 3/4” (19mm)
we have formulated a minimal size which
is at least 3/4” in height.

have been carefully selected to create a
unique visual identity that communicates

possible.

possible to use 4 colours. We have

2.5 Spot vs. Process

Brand Standards
Spot Colour vs. 4 Colour Process.

The difference is in the ink. Print pieces
like magazines and colour newspapers use
only 4 specific coloured inks to produce
their publications. This is known as “4
Colour Process.” Theoretically the blend of
these inks can give you the colour needed
to produce an image. This 4 Colour
Process is also known as “CMYK,” which
stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key.
“Key” is a descriptor for “Black.” Key is

colours. There are simply some colours
that can not be reproduced. That’s when 4 Colour Process
specifically mixed inks are used in printing.
These special mixed inks are referred to
as “Spot Colours.”
Pizza Hut Red Pizza Hut Green Pizza Hut Yellow
To differentiate the brand, most companies
define their colours in spot colours. Pizza
Hut has chosen its signature red as
Pantone® Matching System 485 or
PMS 485. We call this Pizza Hut Red.

provides sufficient contrast for the logo to

Getting Out and About.

Premium and wearables offer us a chance
to link the Pizza Hut logo to enjoyable
experiences which help create and
enhance the friendly image of our brand.
Whether applied to t-shirts, polo shirts,
baseball caps, watches, or anything else,
the logo must always represent the spirit
of the brand with fun, style, and class.
Given the wide range of materials
involved, it is important to ensure the
accurate reproduction of the Pizza Hut
logo and colors on premium wearables.
Some easy-to-follow guidelines are
presented in this section. Be sure to use
only approved suppliers and artwork in
producing these items for your needs.

Communicating With Others.

As with any global franchise network,
Pizza Hut communicates with a variety of
internal and external audiences, whether
it’s with customers, transmitting messages
to staff, or communicating with suppliers. In
order for us to project a cohesive image,
it’s essential for these documents to share
a unified look that’s consistent with our
brand identity. The guidelines in this
section will help you achieve this goal.
