MIT Logo

Merchandise: MIT acronym

Proper usage

  • The MIT logo is the Institute’'s primary mark and must be considered first when creating new merchandise.
  • When using the “MIT” acronym, the only acceptable font licensees may use is Collegiate Style/Athletic Block. MIT departments and student groups may use other fonts, but designs must still be reviewed and approved by the MIT Merchandise Team.
  • The MIT acronym cannot be used with periods between the letters.
  • When using both the seal and the Collegiate Style/Athletic Block letters on one product, be sure to place the seal under the acronym and scale the seal 30% to 40% smaller than the letters. (see Example E)
  • When spelling the acronym vertically, the letters should be rotated as a unit and should not be stacked on top of one another. (see Example M)
