Logos and Usage Guidelines

The Mass Humanities logo must appear on all publicity materials associated with your funded project. Failure to comply with the following Mass Humanities’ logo usage guidelines could result in future grant ineligibility.

Along with the Mass Humanities logo, publicity materials for your project should also include the logo for either the National Endowment for the Humanities or the Mass Cultural Council. Check your grant award letter to confirm the source of your funds, then go to download NEH logos or download MCC logos

Various formats of the Mass Humanities logo are available to download below.

Sizing and Spacing

Minimum Scale of Logo: When printed, the logo with the tag line should not be less than 1.75 inches in width and no less than 1 inch in width without the tag line.

When displayed online, the logo with the tag line should not be less than 175 pixels in width and no less than 90 pixels in width without the tag line.

Clear Zone

All words and images used above or below the logo should maintain the distance of the proportional height of the “m” in “mass”.

All words and images used to the left or right of the logo should maintain the distance of the proportional width of the “ss” in “mass”.

These distances are referred to as the “clear zone.”
