Logo and Artwork Questions

Jeff Montgomery -


What kinds of artwork and maps can I use in my DMs Guild titles?

Note: The artwork (such as illustrations or maps) that you include in your title does not become part of the DMs Guild content that other DMs Guild contributors can then use.

These are types of artwork you can use in your DMs Guild titles:

What are the rules for putting branding (logos, trademarks, etc.) on my DMs Guild title?

Content creators can create their own branding, but they must follow these guidelines:

  • DMs Guild Logo. The DMs Guild logo (linked below) must appear on your title’s cover. This rule is effective June 1, 2018. Titles created before that date are still encouraged to have the DMs Guild logo on their cover, but are not required. The DMs Guild logo can be resized to fit your cover, but may not be altered or changed in other ways. You can find the DMs Guild logo here:
  • Covers. No personal branding images (logos, trademarks, etc.) can be displayed on your product’s cover. However, you can include these images in the product’s interior.
  • Personal Branding. Any personal brand, logo, or trademark used within your title must be original to the creator. These branding images cannot violate existing copyright or trademark laws, nor can they be derivations of Wizards of the Coast branding, such as the D&D logo and the Dungeons & Dragons logo.
  • Fantasy Grounds. Content for Fantasy Grounds may display the Fantasy Grounds logo on its cover. Content for Fantasy Grounds must have the DMs Guild logo on its cover as well. Please see this page for more details about Fantasy Grounds:
  • Guild Adepts. Guild Adept members must include the Guild Adept logo on their titles' covers. Only members of this program may use this logo.
