To use the NISC trademarked logo:
If you would like to use the NISC logo, please abide by the following guidelines. By downloading the logo files, you agree to use them with the following terms:

Minimum Size

To maintain their integrity and maximize their impact, the NISC logo, please do not use the logo smaller than 1/2 inch.
You can also call or email identity@nisc.coop for assistance on appropriate size and placement of the NISC logo in your publications — or to discuss minimum size standard exceptions.

Clear Space

A “clear space” equal to the height of the capital “N” in the NISC logo must be maintained on all four sides of the logo when placed in printed publications or other materials.

No graphic elements — including typography, patterns, illustrations, or photographs — should appear within this space.
This space allows the registered trademark NISC logo to stand alone for better recognition and protects it from trademark infringement, blending with text, headlines or other images.

  • Do not modify, create new art or text other than the downloaded file.

  • Do not change the colors within the logo. If you need another color, please contact us.
  • Do not add colors to white “reversed-out” artwork.
  • Do not distort, modify or add dimension to the logos.
  • The logo is only approved to be used on a plain, preferably white background.
