Use of the MG logo
The Wisconsin Master Gardener Program relies on the public’s ability to easily recognize their services and products. To help our clientele and the public recognize the scope and nature of our mission, it is important that we convey a unified, cohesive image.
The logo should only be for approved MG volunteer activities, programs and events. It cannot be used for commercial purposes or personal gain.
You can help the WI MG Program present a clear, consistent message and image by using the logo properly. The logo should never be redrawn, retyped, stretched, recreated electronically, or altered in any way (it can be scaled to a different size, but not changing the proportions).
In any application, the logo should be placed prominently so it is easily recognized and legible. The logo may be enlarged or reduced but should never be displayed so small or so large that the image is illegible. No boxes, circles, or other figures should be drawn around the logo in such a way as to appear to be part of the logo or in any way that competes with or detracts from the logo. The county or association's name can be added below the logo.
Whenever possible, use the UW-Extension logo in conjunction with the MG logo. The logo(s) may appear on letterhead used for official MG business. It should not be used for personal stationary.
