The MatchMySound logo “M” icon consists of four soundwave columns and of a quarter note. The logo element “M” represents music technology, sound and the power of recognizing and matching polyphonic music in notes.
The primary MatchMySound logo is horizontal, on a white background. Some light fading to almost white brand elements and textures can be used on the background of MatchMySound logo.
The primary MatchMySound logo is horizontal, on a white background with the logo icon “M” color MMS blue (#35609D) and the “MatchMySound” text MMS darker blue (#33334D). It is preferable for the white logo to be used on the MMS darker blue (#33334D) background.
The white logo can be used if the background is dark enough for the white logo to have good visibility. For example use white logo on balck, gray background and on MMS green (#9BCB3C or #5EA100) background. On lighter backgrounds other than solid white (#FFFFFF), please use the MMS darker blue (#33334D) or solid black (#000000) logo.
Please use the horizontal MatchMySound logo where it will have good visibility and enough space to surround it on all sides.

It is preferable for the white logo to be used on the MMS darker blue (#33334D) background. The white logo can be used if the background is dark enough for the logo to have good visibility. For example use white logo on balck, gray background and on MMS green (#9BCB3C or #5EA100) background. On lighter backgrounds other than solid white (#FFFFFF), please use the MMS darker blue (#33334D) or solid black (#000000) logo.
Please use the secondary (vertical) MatchMySound logo where the allocated space is narrower and therefore too small for the primary logo to have good visibility. Use the secondary logo in social media profile images in order for the logo to enjoy the best visibility and the proper amount of space around it.
