HMSTrust Logo


HMSTrust’s Grants Matrix inspired our logo. Helen’s signature is a bridge between the two pillars of the Grants Matrix, forming a distinctive ‘H’.


Acknowledging our support

Grantees are welcome to acknowledge our support and we appreciate your recognition. If you would like a copy of our logo please submit a request, including where it will be published, in what context, and your preferred file format (jpeg or eps). Approval of final artwork by HMSTrust is required prior to publication. Please provide artwork proofs in a timely manner e.g. minimum of 2-3 days before your production deadlines.

Listing our name

If you choose to write our name in full, please check ‘Macpherson’ is written correctly (not MacPherson or McPherson) e.g. Helen Macpherson Smith Trust.

Using our logo

From December 2014, the HMSTrust logo is available in one design only.

If you were provided with a logo before December 2014, please request a new logo to ensure you have the correct version as above.

(We no longer use a version of the logo which had our name in much smaller font size under the “H”.)


Please download the HMSTrust Style Guide for Grantees which provides essential information on how the HMSTrust logo can be used
