If you have received our consent to use the Nord brand name, you should follow these guidelines and the Brand book.

Use of word marks
  1. The word marks should be used in such a way as shown in the table above.
  2. You should never use our logo in a phrase or sentence, without a clear indication that you are referring to our trademark. For example, such uses as “You should put nord in the background” should be prevented.
  3. Don’t lock up the Nord logo with your own logo. For example, such phrases as “Nord + Your logo makes your life easier” are disallowed.

Use of the figurative mark
  1. Don’t change the Nord trademark colors.
  2. Don’t modify the logo in any way, such as adding visual effects, angling, or rotating.
  3. Don’t mimic any Nord branding in not Nord services or any other goods. For example, you cannot use Nord trademark for unrelated goods, simply to increase visibility on the search engines or e-commerce platforms, or take other unfair advantages of the marks.
