The Brand Guide must be followed exactly, including fonts and colors. Please ensure your vendor has a copy of this guide.
After 40 years, several events and discussions, we came to the conclusion that it was in the best interest of the Texas Master Gardener Program to update the Extension Master Gardener logo. A PowerPoint and video explaining why we have made the change, the goal, and how it is to be used were presented at the 2019 Master Gardener Conference and are located below.
Each county will have an option to use a county-specific logo. The county-specific logos along with the other versions (logo with AgriLife block, logo without agency block or county, single color, dark background, etc.) and the brand guide are available below. Use of materials with the old logos should be discontinued by mid-2021. There is only one logo to be used and associated with the Texas Master Gardener Program. If you have questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note there are restrictions covering the use and placement of this new TRADEMARKED logo, to be found in the brand guide. Unauthorized use will not be permitted.
