Integrated brands: Retail, media, and dining entities that use BYU in their name and identity.

Integrated-Brand Logos

Integrated brands are businesses (such as retail, media, or dining entities) that extend the academic BYU brand for nonacademic uses, often with nonacademic, external audiences. Integrated brands often compete for business with external entities in their field.

Visual identities for integrated brands can use a variety of typefaces, shapes, and graphic symbols. Colors should be selected from the BYU marketing palette. If BYU is part of the business name, the BYU must appear using the monogram, in navy or white, incorporated into the identity design.

Usage Guidelines

Use as Provided

Do not modify BYU-approved marks in any way.


The BYU monogram portion of an integrated logo should be presented in navy blue or white. Other elements of the logo should use the marketing palette.

University logos should only appear in black when used in black-and-white applications. They should never appear in gray.

Minimum Scale

Logos and marks should be large enough to be legible. In integrated brand logos, the monogram must maintain a minimum width of at least 0.375 inch or 56 pixels.

Clear Space

Do not crowd BYU’s logos and marks. To ensure the legibility, clarity, and prominence of these symbols, keep competing visual graphics outside the designated clear space, equal to the width of the BYU “B.”

BYU’s logos and marks should be used on backgrounds that provide sufficient contrast for the logos to stand out clearly. Avoid cluttered or busy backgrounds. When possible, use navy or white as a background for BYU marks.
