For information and download links, refer to the logo resource webpage (Extension website > Employee Resources > Marketing tools > Logos). This page provides a link to download companion logos from OSU Box.

  • There are subfolders for Extension, O&E, Open Campus, Outdoor School, and each Extension and branch experiment station location.
  • There is also a subfolder for the 4-H emblem. Please note this folder includes a document with guidelines for use of the 4-H name and emblem.
  • Within OSU Box, you can “save link” to any Box folder or subfolder. These links will then appear as shortcuts/bookmarks from your OSU Box homepage.
  • Logos are saved in two formats: .png (for digital and Microsoft Office use) and .eps (for use in professional printing, large projects like banners, and Adobe Creative Suite software).
    Please read the logo use guidelines in the Brand Guide before using the logo.

  • We anticipate fonts will be automatically uploaded to workstations the week of June 19 or June 26.
  • According to the licensing agreement, the fonts only can be distributed within our organization. If you use outside vendors or freelancers, those businesses will be responsible for purchasing the fonts. Purchase information can be obtained by emailing university.marketing@oregonstate.edu.
