A small ripple on the left, a growing shift in the middle, a seismic movement on the right: we’re witnessing the cumulative effect of Midwest creativity, and the results are off the charts. Arts Midwest’s logo is, first and foremost, a graphic distillation of our tagline— “Creativity, amplified.” This shape nods to other visual associations, too: a banner in the wind, a stylized bolt of lightning, a confident brushstroke, a seemingly flat shape imbued with energy. Embedded in this dynamism, we can also see an M and a W. In other words, this logo is unmistakably ours.
Our primary logo should be used most often. It’s the first option you should consider for all branded materials.
Our Horizontal Logo should be used when the vertical height of an area makes our Primary Logo harder to read.
The Stacked Logo is a useful option when our logo is featured beside other logos that have a taller height.
