The OpenStack Brand Guide

We're excited that you want to help evangelize the OpenStack® project. No matter how you contribute as a developer, participant, or an enthusiast, your help spreading the word about the OpenStack® project is extremely valuable.

This guide is designed to get you the resources you need and provide simple instructions for the permitted and correct use of the OpenStack® brand assets.

The OpenStack® Word Mark and the OpenStack® logos are trademarks of the OpenStack Foundation. Although the OpenStack® code is freely available to you under the open source license, your ability to use the OpenStack® name and logo in ways which fall in the domain of trademark law, is restricted. It is very important that we protect and enforce our trademark rights to ensure the OpenStack® brand remains a reliable indicator of quality. Therefore, we want to fend against those that seek to intentionally misrepresent their products, services or sponsorships as officially-sanctioned or endorsed by OpenStack.  

We have created a family of logos for those who wish to show their support for the OpenStack® project and those who use the OpenStack® code to power their public cloud or built their product for or with the OpenStack® code.

To get started, review our Trademark Policy and the Logo Usage Guidelines below. Then, it's just a matter of selecting the right logo for your needs and download it or ask us for permission to use it.
