OWASP Marketing: Designs and Downloads
On this page, you will find the most current marketing materials and brand guidelines used by the OWASP Foundation. We have everything from logos and business cards to banner stand and brochure designs all for your use. Most of the files found on this page are in a PDF, EPS, or JPEG format; however, some pieces have the original Creative Suite files zipped in a toolbox. We recommend using the PDF, EPS, and JPEG files first as they are the easiest to use. If you need to edit a design piece, then you are more than welcome to download the Creative Suite files if you have access to Adobe In-Design, Photoshop, and Illustrator. If you require an edit to a design, and you do not have access to Adobe Creative Suite, then please let us know by using the OWASP Contact Us form.
Note: Before you download and use any of the marketing materials on this page, please be sure to read the Brand Usage Rules and Guidelines. It is important to understand how we expect contributors to use these materials as well as what is acceptable and what it not when it comes to usage of our brand and visual Identity.

The Brand Usage Rules
OWASP's philosophy is that achieving security involves all parts of an organization, including people, process, and technology. We support the use of our brand consistent with this philosophy. However, we cannot allow the use of our brand when it implies something inconsistent with OWASP's comprehensive and balanced approach to application security. Therefore, we have defined these brand usage rules to clarify appropriate and inappropriate uses of the OWASP brand, including our name, domain, logos, project names, and other trademarks.
The Brand Guideline documents and rules below provide details and instruction on how to use the OWASP logo and brand. The quick reference sheet goes over the basics of the OWASP brand logo and a brief overview of customizable options. The Brand Guidelines document gives the entire description of the OWASP brand, its public use, and the options to customize the logo. The guidelines cover the OWASP signature, size and spacing, colors, imagery, and typefaces.
The OWASP brand is the property of the OWASP Foundation. The right to use the name or logo is granted as long as the following guidelines are followed. The right to use the OWASP brand may be revoked at any time. The following rules make reference to the OWASP Materials, meaning any tools, documentation, or other content from OWASP.
- The OWASP Brand may be used to direct people to the OWASP website for information about application security.
- The OWASP Brand may be used in commentary about the materials found on the OWASP website.
- The OWASP Brand may be used by OWASP Members in good standing to acknowledge a person's involvement in or a company's support of OWASP.
- The OWASP Brand may be used to indicate that OWASP is a host or sponsor of an event.
- The OWASP Brand may be used in association with an application security assessment only if a complete and detailed methodology, sufficient to reproduce the results, is disclosed.
- The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that The OWASP Foundation supports, advocates, endorses, or recommends any particular product or technology.
- The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that a product or technology is compliant with any OWASP Materials.
- The OWASP Brand must not be used in a manner that suggests that a product or technology can enable compliance with any OWASP Materials.
- The OWASP Brand must not be used in any materials that could mislead readers by narrowly interpreting a broad application security category. For example, a vendor product that can find or protect against forced browsing must not claim that they address all of the access control category.
- The OWASP Brand may be used by special arrangement with The OWASP Foundation.
Customization of OWASP identity graphics is a way to reflect individual characteristics of conferences, events, chapters and projects. The branding guidelines allow for minimal customization of identity graphics. Please see the Identity section for details. A color palette is provided in the Identity Standards Quick Reference Guide. Background images, such as a country flag to identify a local chapter, may be acceptable as long as it does not obscure the branded identity. All customized identity graphics, including logos, banners, avatars, cover photos, presentation templates, etc. must follow these guidelines.
Questionable practices include changing the circle to a square, altering the angle of the wasp feature, using non-branded wasp images, copyrighted images and any other treatment that alters or obscures the OWASP brand. The OWASP Foundation reserves the right to request changes to any graphic that does not comply with these rules.
Be sure artwork is of a suitable quality for the medium in which it will be presented. Do not warp images beyond their normal proportions. Always use the best available version of an image. Make sure the resolution of an image is acceptable. At the final size in a document, image resolution should at a minimum be:
- Websites/email: 72dpi
- Powerpoint documents: 150dpi
- Printer materials: 300dpi (or vector images)

Sisterworks Publishing and Design Foundry were contracted to help OWASP develop a consistent brand message and style. Both companies, along with the OWASP staff, worked together on this marketing project with the aim of developing consistent brand visual identity and messaging. The marketing project was separated into three phases. The first phase was the market research phase during which Sisterworks and Design Foundry undertook market research initiatives of the overall competitive landscape OWASP exists within. The second phase involved the development of a proposed marketing plan, and included marketing recommendations for OWASP to consider in the future.
