This logo is the guiding post for the Roaring Brook brand. It is our primary logo for all communications.
The Roaring Brook symbol derives from the idea of a ripple, the effect that one good decision can have on others.
The secondary logo should be used in spaces that require a linear format.
The Roaring Brook recovery logo should only be used in instances without context, such as sponsorship opportunities.

Color works differently in print than on screen, so you’ll need different color codes for each.
The Pantone system is used for precise color matching – you can give a Pantone reference to any printer, anywhere, and they’ll print the exact same color.
The print files will be delivered in CMYK color mode, which is suitable for commercial full color and everyday printing.
Note: If you try placing a CMYK file into a Microsoft Office program and the image doesn’t display correctly, try the RGB version.
These colors are used in monitors, television screens, digital cameras and scanners. Digital logo files are in RGB color mode.
This six-digit code is associated with websites, viewed on a screen, and refers back to the RGB color.
