We want to support you in creating materials to help spread the word about the deployment of Google Apps on your campus, but we also want to be sure to protect our brand. Before using the templates we have provided, please read through these guidelines for proper usage of Google Brand Features.
Things to do:
Things You Can't Do:
- Use these templates as examples to give you ideas about materials that might work on your campus in conjunction with your deployment. You can be creative and involve your school's staff, faculty and students in getting the word out, but please always be aware of the way in which you are using Google Brand Features.
- If you are using a Google trademark, distinguish the trademark from the surrounding text in some way. Capitalize the first letter, capitalize or italicize the entire mark, place the mark in quotes, use a different type style or font for the mark than for the generic name.
- Use the trademark only as an adjective, never as a noun or verb, and never in the plural or possessive form.
- Use a generic term following the trademark, for example: GOOGLE search engine, Google search, GOOGLE web search.
- Use only Google-approved artwork when using Google's logos.
- Don’t remove, distort or alter any element of a Google Brand Feature. That includes modifying a Google trademark, for example, through hyphenation, combination or abbreviation, such as: Googliscious, Googlyoogly, Googlemania. Do not shorten, abbreviate, or create acronyms out of Google trademarks.
- Don’t display a Google Brand Feature as the most prominent element on your web page.
- Don’t display a Google Brand Feature in any manner that implies a relationship or affiliation with, sponsorship, or endorsement by Google, or that can be reasonably interpreted to suggest editorial content has been authored by, or represents the views or opinions of Google or Google personnel.
- Don’t display a Google Brand Feature on any web site that contains or displays adult content, promotes gambling, involves the sale of tobacco or alcohol to persons under twenty-one years of age, or otherwise violates applicable law.
- Don’t display a Google Brand Feature in a manner that is in Google's sole opinion misleading, unfair, defamatory, infringing, libelous, disparaging, obscene or otherwise objectionable to Google.
- Don’t display a Google Brand Feature on a site that violates any law or regulation.
- Don’t frame or mirror any Google page (including the page that appears in response to a click on the Google logo or Google search box).
- Don’t incorporate Google Brand Features into your own product name, service names, trademarks, logos, or company names.
- Don’t copy or imitate Google's trade dress, including the look and feel of Google web design properties or Google brand packaging, distinctive color combination, typography, graphic designs, product icons, or imagery associated with Google
- Don’t adopt marks, logos, slogans, or designs that are confusingly similar to our Brand Features.
- Don’t use Google trademarks in a way that suggests a common, descriptive, or generic meaning.
