How to add ING Logo to the plots

Assume that below is the function we use for plotting;

def line_plot(ax):
    rng = np.random.RandomState(4)
    x = np.linspace(0, 10, 500)
    y = np.cumsum(rng.randn(500, 4), 0)
    ax.set_title('Line Graph')
    ax.set_xlabel('— Time')
    ax.set_ylabel('— Random values')
    ax.plot(x, y, label = ['Bitcoin', 'Ethereum', 'Dollar', 'Oil'])
    ax.legend(['Bitcoin', 'Ethereum', 'Dollar', 'Oil'], loc = 1, fontsize = 'medium')
    ax.set_xlim([0, 10])
    ax.set_ylim([-20, 60])
    ax.spines['right'].set_position(('axes', 1.05))

You can add the default ing logo to your plot by calling add_logo function inside the plotting function.

from ing_theme_matplotlib.ing_theme.mpl_style import add_logo


You can also add custom logos to your plot by giving the path where the image is located.

from ing_theme_matplotlib.ing_theme.mpl_style import add_logo
mpl_style(dark = False)
line_plot(add_logo(bottom_left = 'logos/RPAA_Logo_RGB_Line.png'))


For more examples, you can check out the ExamplePlots.ipynb file.
