On the Internet, too, recognition and recognizability of the Silhouette brand are the prime objectives; as a result, our corporate design must also be adhered to in the virtual world. In accordance with this principle, there may be only one Silhouette homepage on the Web. For this purpose, optical practitioners and other partners will find it most useful to provide a link that takes visitors interested in Silhouette from their own homepage to the Silhouette website.

The link banner comprises a visual motif similar to the ad motif, the logo and text (slogan). For the links, Silhouette International offers a selection of different motifs. These motifs are regularly updated and adapted to the current advertising presentations. To upload one or more motifs, it is necessary to log in first with Silhouette International.
