New graphic identity standards and logos

MU Extension has produced MU Extension Graphic Identity Standards, a guide that will ensure we follow best practices of visual identity. Visual identity is a major contributor to brand promise — the promise of what MU Extension can do for our clients and a visual reminder of their experiences with us.

Please download the PDF of this document and follow the guidelines. Hyperlinks within the PDF will connect you to many helpful resources and downloads.

New PowerPoint presentation templates available

Before you plan your next presentation, make sure you check out the new PowerPoint templates! The new designs utilize the new graphic elements from MU. Both standard and wide-screen formats are available.

Download them from the Box folder.  Contact Laura Lindsey with questions or if having problems downloading.


New retractable banners now available!

Each regional office has received an updated set of retractable banners. Each set includes five designs—one to represent each of our interest areas and one that is a combination of all. Each region will receive one each of the interest area banners and three of the combination banners. Please discontinue using the older banners.

Connect with your regional office contact to reserve banners for your next event. Want to pick up banners from Columbia? Contact Laura Lindsey to reserve banners to be picked up in Whitten Hall.

Available tabletop displays

Are you hosting an upcoming event for researchers, state or regional council members, legislators, or other constituents? If so, you need to reserve one of our new tabletop displays.

This display speaks directly to researchers and communicates the opportunities MU Extension has to collaborate with them on getting their research to the people of Missouri.

This display is designed to be used at events where constituents, such as donors, legislators and council members are in attendance. It communicates how MU Extension affects lives, businesses and communities across the state with specific examples of successes and available programming.

The three-panel displays measure 64” wide x 32” high and will fit perfectly on a 6-foot or an 8-foot table. Each display weighs 19 pounds and can be set up in just minutes. Each display has a handle and a shoulder strap for convenient transport.

Due to the weight, the display cannot be shipped so it must be picked up in Columbia. Contact Laura Lindsey at to reserve.
