Microsoft logo usage guidelines

Памер15.74 Kb.


The Microsoft logo is a specifically designed form of the company name and may not be retypeset or modified in any way. Artwork for the logo is available as printed logo sheets and in electronic form.


The approved colors for the logo are black or reversed out to white. The logo should never be screened back, built out of four-color process screens, or broken into multiple colors. On Microsoft corporate stationery and Microsoft employee business cards only, the logo appears in gray.


Minimum size

The logo should never appear below a minimum size of ¾ in. or 2 cm. wide. Sizes smaller than that decrease readability dramatically.

Placement & Treatment

  • The Microsoft logo should only appear in a horizontal position.

  • The Microsoft logo may never be used to represent the word “Microsoft” in text, whether it appears in a headline, product-name logotype, or body copy.

  • The logo must always be accompanied by the registered trademark symbol ().

  • Use only approved Microsoft artwork.

Combining the logo with other graphics
The Microsoft logo never appears with any other symbol or icon (except the registered trademark symbol), nor is it contained within a box, circle, or other shape. Having one company logo worldwide ensures that Microsoft is recognized and understood consistently around the world.
Proximity to other elements
o properly stage the logo, a minimum clearance between the logo and other elements must be maintained. The cap height of the M in the Microsoft logo indicates the measurement of minimum clearance between the logo and other elements on all sides of the logo.

Logo Usage

Microsoft internal usage

We recommend that you place the logo as a sign-off device in the upper-right corner or the lower-right corner. The logo may also appear in conjunction with the tagline “Where do you want to go today?®” and our Web address “”. When using the Microsoft logo with any of our other logos, the Microsoft logo is always staged as the signoff and placed below any other logo.

Third-party usage

The Microsoft logo may be used only when referring to Microsoft Corporation. In addition to the color, size, and placement rules outlined here, third parties must also agree to the following terms and conditions when using our corporate logo. Any use of the logo that falls outside what is outlined here is strictly prohibited. For further information or clarification on third-party use of the Microsoft logo, please contact the Permissions/Trademark Group in the Legal Department via fax at (425) 869-1327, or e-mail
