Do's & Don'ts for

University & Unit Signatures

 

Protecting Mizzou’s logos and marks is easy to do by following these identity standards. Remember — recreating, modifying or altering any part of a signature or mark is not allowed. Not sure if you’ve used a logo or mark correctly? Reach out to identity@missouri.edu for guidance.

 

Signature Do’s & Don’ts

Make sure your signature is correctly colored. When using a 1-color signature, remember that the Stacked MU’s shield should be darker than the “MU”.
