Standards for acceptable use of the official 2010 National LCMS Youth Gathering identity mark:

Proportions should remain consistent to the original design and not be distorted, redrawn, or recomposed. 

No alternate fonts can substitute for the typographic elements within the mark.

The mark should not be used on any background that would interfere with the legibility or ability to be recognizable. 

No elements may be removed from or added to the mark.

The mark, being asymmetrical itself, works best when placed asymmetrically--especially when over text that is ‘centered’. The cross element in the mark is the piece that should be centered over the text, not the entire mark itself.

Slightly rotating the mark, 5 to 10 degrees to the right helps maintain the energetic, youthful quality.

The mark can be sized as needed, taking care that proportions remain exact. It shouldn’t be reduced below 1” by .5124” for the sake of readability. 

The mark must include a proportional clear space.
