Branding: Program name & other basics

See below or print our branding cheat sheet (PDF) for tips and reminders. These branding requirements are spelled out more formally in you contract's Branding and Marking Guide. Contact Brenda Dawson with any questions.

Program name: We are the Horticulture Innovation Lab, funded by USAID and led by UC Davis. Together, we build international partnerships for fruit and vegetable research that improves livelihoods in developing countries.

The formal, full-length version of our new name is the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research on Horticulture.

The shortest and most commonly used form of our program name is Horticulture Innovation Lab. Please do not further shorten; no acronyms.

Branding: Logo block

Using the Horticulture Innovation Lab's logo block (.zip) on all project materials is mandated; please see the Marking and Branding Plan in your contract for additional details.

To use the logo block correctly:

When using the logo block, you must also include the appropriate form of this disclaimer:

"This [SPECIFY ITEM HERE] is made possible by the generous support of the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The contents are the responsibility of the Horticulture Innovation Lab [SPECIFY YOUR PROJECT OR TEAM NAME] and do not necessarily reflect the views of USAID or the United States Government."

Download logo block files (zip) for print and presentations. Please contact Brenda Dawson if you have any questions or need special versions of these files.

Branding: Text-only situations

When writing about your Horticulture Innovation Lab project in public communications — such as such as a press release or journal article — you are required to include a phrase in the text substantially similar to:

“… supported by the Horticulture Innovation Lab with funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development, as part of the U.S. government’s global hunger and food security initiative called Feed the Future …”
