Clear Space

To maintain legibility and visual impact, our mark always must have clear space around it that is not infringed upon by text or other visual elements. Use the width of the “CM” from our wordmark as a gauge to determine if the mark has sufficient clear space surrounding it.

Minimum Size

To maintain legibility, the Central Michigan University mark should never be reproduced in sizes smaller than 50 pixels wide for print (.83 in) and 80 pixels wide for web.
