MIA’s visual identity or MIA Logo is a valuable asset. Projecting a strong and consistent visual identity can strengthen the image, mission, and messages of MIA and its
members and associates. When applied consistently and dynamically to all forms of communication, a visual identity reinforces the organisation’s stability and reliability.
Each point of contact initiated by MIA is an opportunity to communicate an image of graphic continuity that makes the MIA name more recognisable and increases awareness of
its role and services.
The purpose of the MIA’s Logo Guidelines for Member and Associates is
to provide an overall framework for creating visually consistent
materials that will reinforce a strong identity for MIA. These
guidelines outline the graphic standards for using the MIA logo and
provide specific directions for member use.
