CSM Logos

College Name

The College of Southern Maryland should be written in upper- and lower-case letters and Times New Roman font should be used in all instances.

College of Southern Maryland


The logo is our institution signature as the primary consistent imagery for the college. A consistent use of the logo is critical when communicating to our targeted audiences. The official college logo guidelines follow.

Logo Dos

  • Use the logo on all printed materials that represent the College of Southern Maryland to the public. (The logo mark-left should always be at least 2 inches wide, and the mark-top logo should always be at least 1.5 inch wide.)

  • The logo must always be black and PMS 109 (CSM yellow), or white reversed out on a dark color. You may also use the logo reversed out white with a yellow cap on a dark color or solid black.

  • Always provide space around the logo, free of typography, graphics, or other distracting elements.
  • When using the logo with return addresses on envelopes or postcards, etc., be sure to always use the mark-left logo and left align address underneath. Also be sure to get approval from the Mail, Distribution, and Fulfillment Coordinator at ext. 7763.

Improper Logo Usage

  • Never use logotype without logomark. The logotype is only a part of the complete logo artwork and should never be recreated using a font.

  • Never use the College of Southern Maryland logo in any form in a line of text.

  • Do not change the proportions of the logo or otherwise distort the logo.

  • Do not place the logo where a hole punch or binding may interfere with it.
  • Do not place the logo on its side or on an angle.
  • Never reverse the logo out to a color other than white. When using colored paper, be sure to make the logo black and PMS 109 (CMS yellow), black, or white.

  • Never print the logo (which consists of the logomark plus logotype) smaller than 2 inches wide for the mark-left logo or 1.5 inch wide for the mark-top logo.
