Government of South Australia Brand
The corporate identity of any organisation is a valuable asset and the integrity of its public image must be protected and maintained at all times.
The Government of South Australia logo (GOSA logo) consists of:
- The roundel, incorporating the Piping Shrike and the words ‘South Australia’
- The words ‘Government of South Australia’
The Common Brand was developed to ensure that a consistent and professional image is maintained with the general public. This enables all levels of the community to recognise Government of South Australia activities, information and services. A single identifiable logo also serves to remind public sector employees that rather than working for an individual department or agency, we are all working for the one government and the community of South Australia. This will assist in fostering further collaborative efforts between government departments to the benefit of the general public. For more information on the Common Brand Policy see Common branding.
The GOSA Branding Guidelines outline the way in which the GOSA logo should be used including sizing, positioning and colour versions. Variations of the GOSA logo are provided where activity is sponsored, supported or an initiative. South Australian Government entities are required to follow the Common Branding Policy as directed by a Minister. All communications materials, both internal and external, must clearly identify the Government of South Australia. This includes print collateral and publications, press advertising, radio and audio files (including internet and mobile), television and video files (including internet and mobile), digital display advertising (including emails) and online classifieds, websites, social media, mobile, uniforms and vehicles, and sponsorship.
