MSU Wordmark/Helmet Combination

The wordmark/helmet combination mark incorporates the university’s primary graphic symbol with the high-visibility Spartan helmet graphic for increased recognition and readability.

  • The combination mark may be used on all external communications, unless otherwise specified, including print and digital publications, advertising and licensed merchandise.
  • The combination mark should be used for outdoor signage identifying MSU locations on campus. (Contact University Communications for more information.)
  • The combination mark is the preferred choice when a Michigan State University mark must appear within a list or group of visual marks from other entities. It provides greater readability and visual impact.
  • Display the combination mark only in Spartan green (Pantone Matching System ink color 567 or hex code 18453B for web), black or white.
