Logo System Policy

  • The logos of the 1989 identity policy replaced all previous versions of the Arch and other University symbols.
  • The official Seal of the University of Georgia is not a part of the logo system, and is not interchangeable with UGA logos. The Seal should be used only on formal and official institutional documents such as diplomas and proclamations.
  • The symbols of the logo system cannot be modified or altered in any way. Logos should always be reproduced from high-resolution digital files in order to maintain high quality.
  • Logos must be reproduced in official colors. However, when the basic ink color in a publication is to be something other than black, the logo may be reproduced in that color. This dispensation does not apply to stationery items.
  • All academic, administrative and support units of the University are required to use one of the approved letterhead styles on all stationery, printed in black ink only or black plus PMS 200 red. Envelopes, notepads, business cards, mailing labels and other stationery items must also conform to these logo guidelines.
  • No competing departmental, school, college or other logos or symbols may appear on official University of Georgia letterhead or stationery items.
  • The words "The University of Georgia" must appear on the front cover of all University publications, and one of the logos must appear on or within each publication, preferably on front or back or title page
  • In addition to printed publications and Web sites, this logo system is recommended for all visual representations of the University including signs, video productions, exhibit materials and vehicles.
  • Exceptions to these policies, guidelines and standards must be approved in advance by the Vice President for the Division of Marketing & Communications (286 Oconee Street, Suite 200 North or karri@uga.edu).

These policies, standards and guidelines are revised as deemed necessary.
