MINFIE logo

Use this logo / mark to inform people that there are MINFIE messages available at the current location.

Other alternative versions of the Minfie logo can also be used to communicate to people that at the current location there are MINFIE messages available – similar way as there are several different normal INFO marks existing. The shapes shown below are typical also in the normal info marks (dot instead of “e”) and therefore easy to associate with the “electronic information”.
