Universal logos give Red Hat® groups a unified visual identity that makes it easy to identify an official group, team, tool, or program as official and different from our products. If you need a logo for something that doesn’t fit in the other logo categories, start with a universal logo.

Universal logo, minimum clear space

Universal logos are produced in standard and reverse full-color versions, as well as 1-color versions in white, red, and black.

A template built for flexibility

All universal logos are built on a template which places the words "Red Hat" first, followed by a group name written in bold. We utilize descriptive naming to differentiate between teams, tools, and programs. 

Names should be professional and customer-facing, and must include an identifying descriptor like Red Hat Technical Account Manager or Red Hat Certification Team. 

Contact naming@redhat.com to ensure that the name of your group meets all of the existing requirements before requesting a new universal logo.

Universal logo with a sub-program

What if my group has a sub-program?

Complex programs can use universal logos that include the name of sub-programs instead of creating new universal logos for each initiative. If you need a universal logo that includes a sub-program, the Brand and Creative team can provide that version for you.

What if I need to use my logo in an interface?

Horizontal versions of our universal logo should only be used in the headers of online interfaces or tools. If you need to use your logo in the header of an online interface or tool, the Brand and Creative team can provide a horizontal version of the universal logo.
