The elementary brand belongs to elementary, Inc., the company that guides and supports development of elementary products. These guidelines describe when and how the elementary brand should be used.

Company and Product Names

The word elementary is a trademark of elementary, Inc. to refer to the company itself. It is always lower-case, even when beginning sentences. It may also be used along with product names (i.e. “elementary OS”) to refer to a specific product of elementary, Inc.

The primary product of elementary, Inc. is elementary OS. For clarity, elementary OS should never be shortened to “elementary” or any abbreviation.


elementary, Inc. claims two marks: the “e” logomark and the “elementary” logotype. Both are considered trademarks and represent elementary, Inc.

Obe majú byť používané s ohľadom na nasledujúce pravidlá:

Logomark elementary
Default logomark
Alternate elementary Logomark
Alternate logomark

The “e” logomark is to be used to refer to elementary, Inc., especially when a square ratio is required. It should be used at larger sizes and when alongside similarly-weighted logos. The thinner, alternate logomark may be used in smaller contexts or when the default logomark feels too heavy.

Logotyp elementary

The “elementary” logotype is to be used when space allows to refer to elementary, Inc. It may also be used before a product name to refer to a specific product of elementary, Inc.

Logotyp by mal byť vždy použitý podľa nasledujúcich pokynov:

Tretie strany & Komunita

We invite third-party developers creating products for elementary OS to adopt certain elements of the elementary brand for consistency:

  • Farby
  • Písmo
  • Hlas/tón

Avšak, aby nedošlo k zmäteniu používateľa, obmedzujeme použitie názvu a označení elementary:

  • You are encouraged to say that your app or service is “designed for elementary OS,” but do not use the elementary name or marks as part of the name of your company, application, product, or service—or in any logo you create.

  • Only use the elementary name or marks to refer to elementary, Inc. or its products (i.e. elementary OS).


Pri komunitných produktoch (stránky, fankluby, atď.) odporúčame použitie elementary Komunitného loga:

elementary Komunitné Logo vo farbe elementary Komunitné Logo v čiernej

This helps establish the product as part of the overall community while reducing confusion that can arise from using the elementary, Inc. logomark.

Distribútori Hardware

As long as our software carries the elementary branding, the experience must be consistent—whether the OS was downloaded from our website or pre-installed on a hardware product.

The software components of elementary OS may be modified and redistributed according to the open source terms of the software’s licensing; however, the above branding and trademarks may only be redistributed under one or more of the following conditions:

  1. The software remains substantially unchanged; including default apps, stylesheet and iconography, etc., or

  2. Software modifications are approved by elementary, Inc.

Drivers and hardware enablement are of course acceptable. We understand that distributor branding (i.e. default wallpapers) can be important for distributors, so these modifications will typically be approved. If in doubt, email [email protected] for clarification or direction.

If you’re unable or unwilling to follow the elementary, Inc. trademark redistribution terms, removing our trademarks from the OS is simple and straightforward:

  1. Upravte riadok DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION v súbore /etc/lsb-release a odstráňte naše ochranné známky.

  2. Nahraďte ikonografiu tak, aby sa ikona distributor-logo, nachádzajúca sa v /usr/share/icons/elementary/places/ nezobrazila v OS v žiadnej z dodaných veľkostí.

  3. Remove or replace the packages plymouth-theme-elementary and plymouth-theme-elementary-text.

For more information about OEMs and hardware distributors, see our information for OEMs.


We do not authorize our branding (including our name or brand marks) to be used on third-party merchandise without explicit written approval.
