BRANDSTANDARDSMANUALUNIVERSITY LOGOUsing the official university logo eliminates the confusion ofdifferent visual messages. No other graphic treatments should bepresented as logos of the university. Other graphic treatmentsmay be used as elements on web pages, apparel, organizationallogos, etc., but should follow the university identity guidelinesso that no design supplants the university logo.The A&M–Central Texas logo may be produced in full color,black, reversed out of a dark color in white, and in some limitedcases, gold or silver foil. The logo should be used in its entirety,with no alterations or visual distortions and generally shouldbe no smaller than an inch. Neither the logo nor any of itselements may be combined with any other design to create anew design. If the logo is used in conjunction with anotherlogo or seal, it should be of equal size.It is important that the area surrounding the logo remains freeof other type or imagery so nothing competes with the logo forthe viewer’s attention. To ensure this, maintain a clear marginaround the log of at least one quarter the height of the logo.Preferred Logo • PMS 655, PMS 202, and PMS 877Reversed Logotype • White on PMS 6556
