The dedicated logo treatment developed for Villanova’s Centers of Excellence and Institutes provides a unique identifier for each Center/Institute as well as a clear and consistent visual connection to Villanova University and the center’s affiliated college.
As Villanova University and the appropriate college name appears within the Centers/Institutes logos, they are able to appear without being accompanied by the University or a College logo—across mediums. In all cases on print pieces and websites, the Center/Institute logo should not be pulled apart with elements appearing separately.
The following list includes additional guidelines:
On a print piece:
As stated above, the Center/Institute logo may be used without being accompanied by the University or College logo. It may not be altered in any way from the provided file setup. Jpg and eps files are acceptable file types for print mediums. Please see list below for unacceptable treatment of logo file when incorporating into a communication piece.
Return address panels on magazines, postcards or other self-mailers should always use the Villanova University logo, and, if desired, the Center/Institute and College name written underneath, followed by the University’s address.
In PowerPoint slides:
Each Center of Excellence and Institute will be provided with designed title and header/footer PowerPoint slides for their use.
On the web:
There is no requirement to use the Center/Institute logo on its web page. If desired, the Center/Institute logo may be used as a design element within the parameters of the approved University web template; C/I logo may not be used in the upper left corner, in place of the Villanova University logo, or in place of the College header.
On social media:
Centers/Institutes are encouraged to use the Villanova “V” as a social media avatar. However, if the Center/Institute logo includes an individual mark, that mark may
be pulled out of the logo for the sole purpose of serving as a social media avatar.
For assistance in creating a social media avatar, please contact University Communication’s Creative Services department at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 610-519-4275.
On business cards and stationery:
All employees of Villanova University are asked to use the approved stationery with the Villanova University logo, available through Villanova’s iPrint/Nova Docs online ordering system. The name of a Center/Institute may be included in the appropriate “Center or Department” field of the Nova Docs template.
A Center/Institute logo may appear on the backs of Villanova business cards, with or without a web address, and in place of the University’s tagline. The logo will appear in our signature blue on a white background. Please
On specialty products:
If you require a logo for an ad specialty item (t-shirts, pens, etc.) that does not fit the specified live area, please contact Creative Services to obtain a usable file for your need.
