Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Branding Questions
Q: Can my club have its own logo?
A: No! That would detract from the unified Toastmasters message. Please only use the official logo, as stated in the Brand Manual. How your club celebrates achievements, structures your meetings, designates themes and challenges club members is completely up to you but please follow the branding guidelines.
Q: Can we still use the sunburst or sunray pattern?
A: That has been discontinued in the latest release of the Brand Manual. It was not being used consistently or within the originally intended manner. Don’t use it going forward.
Q: Can we create themed flyers and posts for special occasions (i.e. Halloween)?
A: We understand the desire to create, for example, a Halloween flyer that’s spooky and orange with pumpkins all over it but unfortunately Toastmasters International can’t approve that.
Q: Animation is another form of communication so why is it not accepted by Toastmasters International?
A: The reason it is not accepted is because of consistency. Some people are very good at animation while others are not! It is also very hard to regulate them in terms of cultural sensitivities and appropriateness, etc.
