Logo and font
The Tasmanian Government logo is the only mandatory design element required for websites under this policy. The logo must be included in the header of all web pages as a clearly identifiable link to www.tas.gov.au. Recommended placement is top left-hand corner.
The web font must be Verdana. This font was chosen as the mandatory web font for its readability. It’s a broad front which is easy to read on a screen at low resolution and small sizes.
Other mandatory elements – colour palette and basewave device – are not required.
A header section must be present on all web pages. The Tasmanian Government logo and the Tasmanian Government portal URL must be present in the header section.
The pictured example, with the Tasmanian Government logo in the left hand corner and an image in the right corner – is a recommended style. Any images used should reflect the Tasmanian brand.
A footer section must be present on all pages. The Tasmanian Government Web Design and Navigation Guidelines require that, within the footer:
- Global links should be present i.e. ‘home’, ‘contact us’, ‘about us’
- Personal Information Protection Statement must be present
- Disclaimer and copyright link must be present
- Tasmanian Government logo should be present.
