The DePauw University Visual Identity, Logos and Standards
DePauw’s visual identity system is central to achieving consistency in presentation within each of the University’s numerous methods of communication. Though a logo is not – in and of itself – the message, its consistent use, coupled with a close adherence to the identity system will foster a look that will, over time, become associated with the DePauw brand in ways that reinforce the University’s messaging and personality.
With many pamphlets, publications, brochures and advertisements stemming from many offices and programs, the visual identity system provides a framework to ensure that each of these publications is perceived by our many audiences as originating from and connecting to DePauw University.
Though a more complete graphics framework is currently under development and will be made available in the coming months, a preliminary graphics standard guide for DePauw logo use and publication development is available for reference.
Please consult this guide and use it as your reference if you have a need to use the DePauw logo system.
The variations within the system were purposefully designed to accommodate a number of potential uses that arise with different publication and design needs. If you have further questions, are unsure about logo usage in a particular situation, require high resolution or vector art, or otherwise need to consult with the Communications Office, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Graves (x4633 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jonathan Coffin (x4088 or email@example.com).
