Use the exact logo design you’ve downloaded. Please do not:
- Distort, modify or remove elements from the official logo
- Create your own logo, use incorrect colors or add elements to the official logos.
- Separate, reposition or delete parts of the logo
- Rotate the logo
- Use colors other than those approved
- Stretch or distort the proportions of a logo
Proportions and Size
The logo must be highlighted in comparison to other graphic elements.
When a logo must be resized, be careful to make sure that the proportions are maintained—this can often be accomplished by holding down the Shift key as you drag a corner of the image box.
When used in printed materials, the logo must be no smaller than 0.75 inches tall.
Clear space is necessary to provide breathing room around the logo. Leave a clear space around the top, bottom, left and right of the logo that is at least .25″.
Understanding File Types
Best uses: with a professional design program such as InDesign; when sending a logo to a designer or a print vendor — especially vendors using the logo on items such as t-shirts
Pro: transparent and scalable, it can be printed as large as you need
Con: larger file sizes
Best uses: web/digital
Pro: transparent background
Con: larger file size than .jpg in some cases; image will become pixelated if enlarged
Best uses: websites and printed materials
Pro: relatively small file size helps web pages load faster
Con: white background; image will become pixelated if enlarged
Besides consistent use of logos, another unifying visual component for our brand is consistent use of color. The Texas A&M AgriLife color palette was created to complement the Texas A&M University signature color, Aggie Maroon.
The official colors for Texas A&M AgriLife are Aggie Maroon (Pantone 7421) and Pantone Cool Gray 11. While secondary colors are available, please note that each AgriLife secondary color is also used to differentiate each agency from the others when collateral is mixed/shared across agencies.
