There are very specific guidelines regarding the use of the primary logo.  By downloading any logos, you agree to follow all university policies, procedures, rules, guidelines, and directions given to me or provided on www.ulm.edu.  I acknowledge that deviating from these policies, procedures, rules, guidelines, and directions can result in disciplinary action through the university and possible financial losses for unapproved merchandise, promotional material, and use of ULM trademarked logos, elements, and insignia.

UNIVERSITY LOGO USE

MUST BE PRESENT ON ALL UNIVERSITY COMMUNICATIONS

As the primary graphic identity for the institution, the university logo must appear on all communications, including brochures, stationery, business cards, and the university website.

PRIMARY

As the primary visual identifier of the ULM, it is essential that the ULM logo is never altered in any way. In all communications, such as print, digital, and web applications, as well as all partnership and sponsorship programs, the ULM logo must always be highly visible and unmistakable.

NEVER MANIPULATE THE LOGO IN ANY WAY

This rule includes but is not restricted to type, rules, surrounding boxes, shadows, outlines, and embellishments. Do not create secondary (sub) logos to represent a school, college, center, or institute, as this is confusing to audiences and dilutes the goal of creating a common, mutually reinforcing image.

The primary logo is to be printed in approved colors and only in one solid color from primary colors.

GIVE THE LOGO ITS OWN SPACE

Balance is an essential feature of good design. Graphics, imagery, and text must all be balanced on the page so that each is able to speak clearly. Placing any element too close to the primary logo diminishes its importance.

A mandatory “clear space” (A) around the logo equal to the width of the type placement on the circular path must be incorporated into any design using the logo. 

ELEMENTS OR COMPONENTS WITHIN LOGO

It is very important that designers do not attempt to construct the logo themselves, as the lettering in the logo has been sculpted especially for ULM.

Please download authorized logo files with original art.

In addition, do not reproduce the logo by scanning a previously printed version. Such “second-generation” art will degrade the quality of the image and perhaps alter the scale of the various elements.

RESPECT THE MINIMUM SIZE

The ULM logo can appear in a variety of sizes to accommodate a range of applications, but it must never be sized so small that it becomes illegible.

Because of the complexity of the design elements in the ULM logo, it should never be reproduced so the optical height becomes less than 0.6 inches or 43 pixels.
