Michigan IT Wordmarks
U-M IT staff are invited to use the Michigan IT wordmark as appropriate in the course of Michigan IT sponsored activities.
When using logos, be conscious of size and legibility. Use common sense—a signature that is too small ceases to serve any useful communication function. Generally, logos should never appear less than 3/8" tall in printed materials, and no less than 36px tall in digital work.
Always position the logo for maximum impact and give it plenty of room to breathe. This will help to ensure the logo's visibility and legibility.
The Block M logo is one of the most recognized university symbols in the nation, long associated with the excellence of the university. University of Michigan and Michigan IT logos have been carefully designed and should never be altered in any way.
- Never stretch, condense or otherwise morph the logo.
- Never redraw the logo, translate it, rotate it, or alter the placement and size relationship between its elements.
- Never add additional elements or copy to, change the color of, or alter the integrity of the University of Michigan logo.
- More information and illustrated "how not to" samples can be found on the on the University Logo Guidelines page.
