Welcome to the new Michigan Medicine branding guidelines. With the launch of the new name comes many changes you will need to consider over the next several weeks. But rest assured, everything you need to know about changing your identity from what it has been to what it needs to be now is here.

FIRST THINGS FIRST

  1. THE LOGO GENERATOR IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
  2. WITH VERY FEW EXCEPTIONS NOTED BELOW, CUSTOM LOGOS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE. All custom logos created during the past 3+ years using the logo generator are being phased out. The vast majority of faculty and staff will now use either Michigan Medicine or Medical School. The new logos can be downloaded here.

THE EXCEPTIONS

Custom logos for the a select few facilities and entities are being continued. They have been updated with the Michigan Medicine banner so you will need to download a new set. The list of approved custom logos can be found here.

FAQs

How much space should be between my department name and the logo?
Your department name must abide by the clear space guidelines found here.

However, just because your department name can be as close to the logo as the clear space will allow, doesn't always mean it should. There are a variety of ways to market materials without having the department name and logo side-by-side. Please view our flyer and poster templates for examples on how to use your department name and Michigan Medicine logo separately.

How do I replace the logo in the PowerPoint template with my approved logo?
Depending on what version of PowerPoint you have, click view in the menue bar or tool bar tab, and select "Slide Master". Within the slide master, you are able to dictate which elements you want to appear on all slides. for more information on how to use the slide master, please see this brief tutorial.
