This guide will help you make use of the Poparide brand effectively and consistently.
Name & logo
Name and logo
In writing, Poparide is always spelled with a capital 'P' followed by lowercase letters: Poparide.
Please don't spell Poparide as Pop-a-ride, PopARide, Pop a ride or Pooparide (yes, we've seen this!).
Our logo spells out the word "Poparide" in uppercase and can be used in orange with a white background or in white on a dark background.
Make sure to leave at least half our logo's height as white space around it.
Also, please only colour the Poparide logo orange or white and if you use the white version, put it against a dark background so it's easy to see.
