When VIMS participates in an event or program with a partner organization, every effort should be made to ensure that the design of any resulting communication piece harmonizes with the guidelines presented in the VIMS Style Guide. In co-branded applications, the VIMS logo should be featured prominently alongside the logo of the partnering organization; when both organizations desire equal prominence, a horizontal arrangement of logos is best.

Staff in the News & Media Services unit at VIMS should review any piece that features the VIMS logo to verify compliance with the logo standards as indicated on the logo page.
