Make sure that the QR-embedded is “pure” and only contains the URL you intended to provide.
Some on-line QR generators embed additional information into the URL like web page redirection, id tokens, or alike used for tracking purposes.
https://zxing.appspot.com/generator, for example, produces pure QR codes.
ISO 3864-1: 2002 specifies the safety identification colors and design principles of safety signs for use in workplaces and public places for the purpose of preventing accidents, combating fire, information on health risks and emergency evacuation.
We are still working in compliance with these standards and can not create a parallel system.
CERN offices are collective and often shared workspaces. To minimize the cost of painting and retouching, a range of 4 colors are available.
In the case of this flyer the entire document is printed in one color: pink. There is no alternative but to reproduce our logo in pink if we want to be part of this flyer. In this case the outline version of the logo should be used.
The signature must remain sober, short and adapted to the reading mode of the correspondent.
1 - No signature-image, because one can neither copy-paste the text, nor "add to an existing contact"
2 - No logo CERN because it complicates the message and adds difficulty for reading on the mobile
3 - Paper business cards are a good basis for content.
CERN has five sectors, eight departments, 113 groups and well over 200 sections. It would be a waste of time and resources to create a separate logo for each one. We are all part of CERN and the logo is our common emblem.
The more we use it, the more weight it carries.
It is therefore forbidden to create a separate logo for an individual organic unit.
