Graphic Identity

This page serves as a resource to guide PSC staff and others in your design and publication efforts.

The Logo

PSC staff and members of the MIT community may use the logo on their publications, documentation, and advertising. Please be sure to use the proper file for the respective media.

The downloads below contain Adobe Illustrator EPS (Encapsulated PostScript™) files for print use. EPS files are infinitely scalable and produce quality prints no matter what size. NOTE: EPS files work best in Adobe applications (i.e. Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign). Applications such as Microsoft Word will display a rough preview of the image on the screen, but it will print beautifully on paper.

Please keep the logo at a readable size, and do not stretch or distort the logo in any way.
