IOOS Logo horizontal layout RGB Colors Blue/Teal/White

U.S. IOOS® is proud to officially unveil their new logo!

IOOS has evolved in response to the wants and needs of our partners, regional associations, stakeholders, and users, and so we teamed up with Orlando-based design firm Brand Architecture to create this elegant, emblematic logo representative of today's IOOS. In the true spirit of openness and interagency cooperation, it was custom-built based on input from the IOOS program office, our peers, and regional associations.

The logo is simple, streamlined, and with an emphasis on integration - starting with the interweaving of the I-O-O-S. The blues are the dark blue of the deep ocean and great lakes and bright, clear blue of the coasts and shallows. It's an eye looking out. It's a signal radiating outward. The "s" is two open arms embracing the world. It's all these things and more, and we invite you to find something new every time you see it, just like you can with IOOS.
