The suite of Extension Service logos will be available this week. Keep an eye out for an email explaining how to access the logo for your county. Please read the Brand Guide before using the new logos. For example, it is important to have space around the logo that is the width of the crest. And to ensure legibility, the logo should not appear smaller than 1.375 inches wide in printed materials. If you have questions contact Ann Marie Murphy, communication and marketing manager for University Outreach and Engagement and OSU Extension Service.
