On brochure titles, an additional color layer at the bottom must be implemented to hold the title of the brochure. This color layer bleeds off of the bottom as well as the right and left side of the format and and lets the underlying motif shine through.

On brochure covers, the Bayer Cross is placed at the top left. The size is 12% of the shorter size of the format. To ensure optimal legibility, choose the appropriate version of the Bayer Logo:
- Bright backgrounds: Corp-Logo_BG_Bayer-Cross_Basic_print_CMYK
