Logo

Poparide logo
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.
