Marketing Your Group: MOPS Logo

We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood.

The eyelet in our “M” logomark represents the binding of two sides such as two hands holding or two homes being joined, embodying both unity and strength.

The MOPS Brand Guidelines exist to ensure visual and brand consistency across various print and web materials. If you are part of a MOPS or MOMSnext group with an active Ministry Agreement, you are free to use any of our logos, we just ask that you keep some things in mind. Because of our wide reach and large number of MOPS groups, these standards allow us to create a brand image and identity that are consistent across all mediums. Please start by downloading our brand guidelines.

If you are not part of a MOPS or MOMSnext group, we would love for you to join our circle of moms at MOPS International. In the meantime, please refrain from using our logo or wordmark.

You may add your group name as a tagline, much like we have with mops.org. Here’s how:

  • First, download the font you want from our two free font options (Source Serif or Metropolis) and install it to your computer.
  • Next, download our corresponding EPS or PDF template to input your group name.
  • If you’re using Adobe Acrobat, download our editable PDF file to personalize a logo for your group.
  • If you want to use Adobe Illustrator Creative Cloud, download our EPS file and change the words “GROUP NAME HERE” to match your group.
  • If you have an older version of Adobe Illustrator, download our legacy EPS file to make the logo work for your group.

Photo Guidelines

The goal of MOPS imagery is to be inclusive and relatable. Images should portray moms of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds. This includes, but is not limited to, imagery containing: one child, multiple children, outdoors and indoors, urban and rural environments, working and stay-at-home moms. Above all, aim for the content to be joyful, approachable and authentic.
