K-State Research and Extension
Guidelines for Local Offices

All K-State Research and Extension local offices are required to use the organization's logo when printing cards, stationery, envelopes and similar items. This includes all local extension offices, research centers, and any unit or program located away from the Manhattan campus.

Campus academic offices are required to use the university wordmark for such items as business cards, stationery, envelopes and similar items. Campus offices with K-State Research and Extension responsibilities are allowed to use the K-State Research and Extension wordmark.

If you have questions about whether to use the K-State Research and Extension wordmark or the university's wordmark on materials, please call the Department of Communications at 785-532-5851, or send email to ksrelogos@ksu.edu.


Graphics Representing Your County

Some K-State Research and Extension offices have developed a graphic element representing their local office. Examples include the Meadowlark District, and the Frontier District.

These are graphic elements that can be used on materials from the local office. However, they must never be combined into a single graphic element with the K-State Research and Extension wordmark.

A graphic element for a local office should not be considered a logo, and thus is not an appropriate use of co-branding. The K-State Research and Extension wordmark is the primary brand identity for the organization and thus must always appear on all materials from local offices.

 

Questions about K-State Research and Extension's branding guidelines can be directed to communications, 785-532-5851 or ksrelogos@ksu.edu
