SEMCOG Logo Usage

The SEMCOG logo should be used with the full agency name on all materials. Below are two versions of the logo with the agency name supplied under the logo. There is also a version of the logo without text, so that the agency name can be added within the layout, as that often ensures crisper looking text (text under logo should read "Southeast Michigan Council of Governments"). Right-click on any of the logos, choose "Save Picture As" to download the print quality logo.
