Please reference this folder for the following.
The Dropbox logo is a universal signature we use across all our communications. We want it to be instantly recognizable, so consistency is important—please don’t edit, change, distort, recolor, or reconfigure it.
Glyph and Wordmark
Our logo includes both the glyph and wordmark. Please be sure each element is spaced correctly.
Please use our two-color logo most of the time. Our glyph color may change in special circumstances, but keep the wordmark in white or black.
If you’re creating a composition, please put the Dropbox logo or glyph in one of the four corner areas, or center it on the page.
We have two versions of the Paper glyph, which we redesigned to match the geometry and proportions of the new Dropbox glyph.
The Paper glyph’s height is shorter than the Dropbox glyph—1/6th the height of diamond shorter, to be exact.
Products are the only sub-brand logos within our system. Programs and initiatives don’t have custom logos.
Depending on the context, you can use an additional color from our brand palette for the glyph and the product name. Please don’t put the glyph in one color, and the name in the other. They should always be the same.
Do not rotate glyph
Do not deconstruct glyph
Do not stretch glyph
Do not fill in glyph
Do not use wrong colors

We use Product Screenshots when speaking to our current product offerings. Opposed to relying on a metaphoric narrative, we felt that referencing the physical product would help these educational moments make more sense.
Feel free to use unaltered screenshots for instructional purposes. Please don’t superimpose graphics, change the way our products look, or include any user information in your screenshots. You can annotate as long as the annotations are clearly distinct from the original screenshot. You can find our screenshots in our press kit.
Use of our brand materials
Please don’t use our name, logos, or screenshots (“brand materials”) in ways that may be confusing, misleading, or suggest our sponsorship, endorsement, or affiliation. For example, your name and logo should be more prominent than the Dropbox name or logo. And please don’t edit or change the Dropbox logo — we like it how it is!
Advertising, promotional, and sales materials
Please check in with us before using our logo on websites, products, packaging, manuals, or for other commercial or product use. It’s ok to say in text “works with Dropbox” or “compatible with Dropbox” (as long as it’s true!).
Education and instruction (books, guides, publications, and conferences)
You can use our brand materials for educational and instructional purposes, but please remember that it shouldn’t be confusing or misleading, or suggest our sponsorship. We generally don’t allow use of our logos or screenshots on book covers, for example.
Also remember to include this statement (or something like it) in your printed materials: “(Title) is not affiliated with or otherwise sponsored by Dropbox, Inc.”
Products, websites, names and logos
Please don’t use our name as a part of your company or service name, website name, trade name, or product name. Don’t use our logo or incorporate our logo into yours. Don’t use a domain name containing “dropbox” or any confusingly similar words.
Functional Uses (UIs / buttons)
Developers of our API can use brand materials in accordance with our Developer Branding Guidelines.
Linking to Dropbox
If you use Dropbox and want to use our logo to link to our site, you can use our logo if it meets the rest of these guidelines. For example, “we use Dropbox! [linked logo or link near logo]” or “here’s a photo set (hosted on Dropbox!).”
While we make lots of t-shirts with our logo on them, we don’t generally allow third parties to make, sell, or give away anything with our name or logo on it.
Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org. It helps if you send a mockup of your intended use so we can be specific in our response. We’ll do our best to get back to you ASAP but please give us two weeks to get back to you. (Please note that no response doesn’t mean approval and that we’re currently only able to respond to inquiries made in English).
By using Dropbox brand materials, you agree to the Dropbox Terms of Service, these Dropbox branding guidelines, and all Dropbox rules and policies, as may be updated from time to time. You also acknowledge that Dropbox is the sole owner of Dropbox trademarks, promise not to interfere with Dropbox’s rights in them, and acknowledge that goodwill derived from their use accrues only to Dropbox.
