Texas Health and Human Services and its “HHS” acronym represent the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) alone, and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and HHSC jointly.
This guide is to be used by vendors who contract with HHS.
The guide also provides HHS staff insight into the HHS brand. Some links in this guide can only be accessed by HHS staff. To ensure staff-produced reports, PowerPoints and other material adhere to branding and accessibility standards, HHS employees should use official templates located in the Communication Services section of the agency's intranet (the HHS Connection).
The HHSC or DSHS offices of communications must review and approve agencywide and public-facing campaigns and materials — including videos, graphic designs, websites, social media, and use of the HHS and DSHS logos.
