Appellation and Personal Logo Usage Guidelines

  • Students and Allied members are permitted to have the word “member” in their appellation (Ex. John Doe, Allied Member ASID).
  • List ASID first in cases of multiple appellations (Ex. John Doe, ASID, LEED AP).
  • The membership designations must be spelled out completely. (Note: "of the American Society of Interior Designers" may be substituted for "ASID"). No modification or deviation is permitted.
  • The appellation for professional members and the designations for other members may be used only in conjunction with the member's own name.
  • Members may not utilize any form of the name of the Society or the ASID appellation in conjunction with a firm name, even where the member's name is encompassed in the name of the firm.
  • Members may not use the official ASID logo in any manner. Improper logo usage is a violation of the Society’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.
  • A member may in no way imply, through advertising or other means, that employees of his or her staff or firm are members of ASID unless that is in fact the case, and then they may be identified only by the appellations or designations consistent with their status in ASID.
  • Professional members in good standing may use the ASID Professional Member logo. Industry Partners may use the Industry Partner Logo.
  • If your ASID membership has lapsed, you are no longer able to use any ASID appellation or the ASID logo, among other benefits. ASID strictly enforces this regulation and performs audits.

All ASID members agree to abide by the Society’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.
