Medium Branding Guidelines
These few simple rules will help you use our branding elements to communicate the Medium brand most effectively. Download all assets
The Medium wordmark is an important expression of our brand identity. It should in no way be distorted or redrawn when applied to communications. Because the wordmark is such a recognizable and highly visible brand asset, it is vital that it is always applied consistently.
Our monogram is the reduced form of our wordmark. It should only be used when the wordmark is too small to achieve maximum impact.
Clearspace and Positioning
The wordmark should always be surrounded by generous white space. The diagram below defines the minimum amount of clear space needed, which is based on the x-height in the wordmark.
Primary Usage: our wordmark is primarily used in black. It can sit on top of the light green or white background. It can also be used in white over black.
Discretionary Usage: in rare cases where there is already a strong presence of our light green color, the wordmark may be used on top of a color from our secondary palette.
Incorrect Color Usage: our wordmark should never be used in white on top of any light colors. Additionally it shouldn’t be used with our dark colors, neither coloring it with a dark color, or using our primary black over a dark background.
The examples shown here illustrate incorrect uses of the wordmark.
