Academics and Support Services

Sub-brands: Colleges, schools, departments, centers, campus support services, administration, advancement, student life, and more.

Sub-Brand Logos

Sub-brands are campus units that directly execute or support the academic mission of BYU with its primary academic audiences.

Visual identities for sub-brands pair the BYU monogram with the unit name, in prescribed typeface and color, as outlined below. No additional graphic symbols or shapes may be used.

Never create your own version of the logo. Any deviations from the provided logo or usage guidelines are considered incorrect.

To request approved digital files of your sub-brand logo, contact your college communications manager or BYU Brand & Creative.

Logo Arrangements

Sub-brand logos are provided in a few variations:

  • Alignment: Horizontal and centered/stacked arrangements accommodate different uses.
  • BYU size: Short names are paired with a BYU that is the same height as the unit name; long names are paired with a BYU that is twice as high.
  • Color: Full color (navy and gray) is preferred, but one-color variations (all navy and all white) are acceptable.
  • File type: Logos are provided in EPS and PNG file types.
    • EPS are vector images and can be used at any size. Use EPS for merchandise, print materials, and other large/high resolution applications.
    • PNG files are not vector and are only suitable for small/low-resolution applications, like a Powerpoint presentation, a website, or a handout printed on a desktop printer.
