Consistent use of logos, slogans, color palettes and typefaces reinforces UW Bothell's brand standards. This leads to easy identification of publications that represent our campus by our internal and external audiences.
Best efforts should be made to ensure that the following style guidelines are followed and that brand standards are met.
General Logo Guidelines
- Maintain the original proportions of the logos. Do not change the proportions by stretching or squeezing them to fit a space.
- Do not incorporate other elements into the logos, apply patterns or textures to them, or in any other way modify the appearance of the logos.
- Do not try to redraw or recreate the logos using other fonts.
- Do not change the color of the logo.
Please consult the Office of Public Relations and Communications for assistance with logos. We are glad to provide you with the proper logo sized to fit your needs.
