Ohio 4-H is the youth development arm of Ohio State University Extension.
While it's not a requirement to use this combo mark, we've taken the guesswork out of sizing and spacing for you. All approved color variations and configurations, including versions for merchandise, have been created. This mark must always be used in conjunction with the college tag. The full college name should also appear on printed and electronic pieces. If you have any questions about how to do this, please reach out to the Brand Team for help.
All branding rules for the CFAES logo apply to the Extension-Ohio 4-H combo mark as well: Make sure there is at least one Block O width of clear space on all sides, and do not add any graphics, words, or art elements to it.
Note: We use the horizontal logo only when there are vertical design restrictions, such as headers, footers, etc.
If you have used the previously available vertical configuration, please plan to update your materials with either the stacked or horizontal logo before redistributing or reprinting. For any new materials, use one of the logo configurations above.
Extension/4-H co-branding example
A - You must use the CFAES tag. It's not mandatory to use it in the top left corner like this, but this is the natural, preferred location for it. You can use the short version like the one used here, or use the tall version and "hang" it or bleed it off the page.
B - Since it is no longer included in the wordmark part of the logo, the full college name must appear somewhere on your document. You can use one of the stylized art files we've created (as shown in the example above), or you can spell it out in a brand-approved typeface. It does not have to appear at the top of the page, but this is a natural, sensible location to choose.
C - We've taken all of the sizing and spacing guesswork out of the equation for you with our combo mark files (download them at the link below). You're not required to use them, though. Just remember to leave at least one Block O's width of space between the two, and make sure they're proportional in size. Your eye shouldn't see one as being larger or more prominent than the other.
D - You can continue to use the signoff position to identify your county. You're also welcome to identify your county name in the kicker position (a small line of text above the headline of your piece) or in the actual headline, if it makes sense. Check out the Unit ID section for examples on how you can identify your group.
