CTA Logo Guidelines

Hello! We've created some guidelines to help you use our logo without having to negotiate legal agreements for each use. To make any use of our logo in a way not covered by these guidelines, please contact us at webmaster@cta.org and include a visual mock-up of intended use. 

CTA Logo

The most fundamental visual element of the CTA identity is the CTA logo. Its thick line weights and bold presence make it powerful in any application. In place of a regular crossbar, the letter A features a mortarboard icon to reference education.
