Visual Consistency

The intent of this manual is to encourage a consistent visual look in the use of Montana Tech’s name, not to make every publication look the same. These guidelines apply to print, electronic and Web communications.

Units involved in outreach and/or funded through Montana Tech and not legally autonomous must follow these standards. Some situations may arise that aren’t covered in this manual. In this case, please contact the Public Relations Office at (406) 496-4828.

  • Montana Tech’s word mark must be prominent on the front of all published materials.
  • Montana Tech’s word mark must be used in return addresses.
  • The word mark can’t be redrawn or modified in any way. The Public Relations office can provide you the correct sized word mark at no charge.
  • Leave a minimum of 3/16 inch space between the logo and text or illustrations.
