Corporate Logo


The Chef logo means a lot of things to a lot of people. It is an emblem championing open source software and its community. It is a seal of quality and a stamp of approval from the company. Therefore it should be used proudly, consistently, and with great meaning.

Product Wordmarks


There are three acceptable layouts for the Chef logo. The horizontal logo should be used in thinner, horizontal layouts, such as banners or headers. The vertical logo should be used in longer, vertical layouts, such as printed collateral. Additionally, the circular mark and the name must always appear together.



The product wordmarks are available in both horizontal and vertical, stacked formats. The horizontal versions are preferred and should be used in most all cases. Please contact the Chef creative team if you feel you need to use a vertical layout. 



Standard Horizontal Logo

The standard Chef logo and product wordmarks are for use on white and light colored backgrounds.


Use the inverse logo and product wordmarks when a dark background is present.


Use the white logo on dark or colored backgrounds when neither the standard or inverse logo work.

White Space

White space surrounding the Chef logo must be at least the height and width of the CHEF “C” in all directions.
