Limited Use Logos Information and Guidelines

Joomla Logo Horz Color Thumbnail

For most cases involving the use of a Joomla! logo, excluding uses by the Joomla! Project, a "Conditional Use Logo" should be used (for "Conditional Use Logos" click here). However, there may be some circumstances in which the "Limited Use Logos" may/should be used (images of these logos seen below).

Any usage of a "Limited Use Logo" must be approved. In general permission will be given providing that your usage of the logo is not done in such a way as to imply any form of approval of the product, website, event or other idea or product by Joomla! or that there is any official connection with Joomla!, joomla.org or Open Source Matters. Exceptions to this are:

  • Permission will not be granted to use a "Limited Use Logo" on any form of merchandise. The official Joomla! Shop is provided for this purpose. (You can visit the Joomla! Shop here).
  • Permission will not be granted for use in association with any product that violates the Joomla! license or any domains that distribute such products.

 

Also remember, Joomla! logos are not trademark free. It is important for us to maintain the integrity of our logos. Anyone considering seeking approval for use of the "Limited Use Logos" must keep the following guidelines in mind:

  • The first choice should always be a "Conditional Use Logo" (for "Conditional Use Logos" click here).
  • "Limited Use Logos" should use only the official logo colors listed in the Brand Manual.
  • Any scaling must retain the original proportions of the logo.
  • Other than the variations listed in the Brand Manual, the logo may not be modified in any way.
  • Additional text may not be added in such a way that it appears to be part of the logo itself.
  • Whenever possible, the logo should appear in its full color horizontal gel version. When the gel version cannot be used, a solid color version is available.

For all other usage requirements for "Limited Use Logos" please see the Brand Manual(above).

Please note however that some of the text in the current document does not reflect the current trademark policy of the project. This policy is described below and in the links referenced. The pdf is only definitive for the design aspects of logo use.

We encourage you to learn more about our trademark policy and to get answers to some frequently asked questions about trademarks.
