Sub Branding Al 01

A “lockup” refers to the use of the academic mark with the name of a college or school. Each college and school should use only the approved and supplied version of the lockup created for it.


The mark and lockup should follow the same color rules as the mark without the lockup.

The college or school name should be treated as part of the mark. So, whatever color you make the mark, the name should follow suit.

Business papers such as stationery, business cards, and envelopes are to use the blue one-color mark, or the gold foil option for the shield.
