We've had a number of questions about linking to Govt.nz from your website, so thought we'd give you the low down, as it stands.
Our recommendations are to:
- include the All-of-Government “New Zealand Government” logo (JPG 24KB) or “Te Kāwanatanga o Aotearoa” logo (JPG 22KB) on your home page, and
- link it to Govt.nz (www.govt.nz).
The reasons for this latest advice are that:
- The All-of-Government "newzealand.govt.nz" logo is being retired because the website it names no longer exists.
- Links to newzealand.govt.nz now redirect to the new Govt.nz website.
- The next version of the Web Usability Standard will require that home pages link to www.govt.nz instead of newzealand.govt.nz.
- The next version of the All-of-Government Brand Policy and Guidelines will require the use of the “New Zealand Government” and "Te Kāwanatanga o Aotearoa" logos and linking to www.govt.nz.
Until the Web Usability Standard and All-of-Government Brand Policy and Guidelines are updated, we suggest you go with our recommendations.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
