Branding Standards

Founded in 1949, the Texas Education Agency oversees primary and secondary public education by providing leadership, guidance, and support to school systems. Our vision is to prepare every child for success in college, a career, or the military.

We have developed our brand guidelines and writing style guidelines to help everyone maintain the TEA brand. By utilizing these guidelines, you are doing your part by reinforcing our image and brand. 

Brand Guidelines


The Texas Education Agency Brand Guidelines establishes guidance on our brand identity, voice and tone, key audiences, logo requirements, approved fonts and colors, and other visual guidance. 

Use the TEA Brand Guidelines for specific guidelines on elements associated with our brand.
