For assistance with official contracts, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Co-branding Usage Examples
Use the primary UO logo or departmental logo in an approved color variation. If the logo will be placed on a colored background outside of the UO brand, use a black or white version.
For designed collateral, the University of Oregon primary logo or departmental logo should appear in the principal location at a large scale. Use assets and elements from the UO brand.
External logos and names should appear at a reduced scale in a black or white treatment.
Equal Partner or Sponsor
The University of Oregon primary logo and departmental logo should be sized equally to affiliate logos. Follow clear space guidelines.
Use Horizontal 356–445 colored version of the logo or another option appropriate to the design.
Major Listing with Other Brands
Contextualize the partnership with external parties. Use terms such as “Sponsored by” or “Presented by” above the University of Oregon primary logo or departmental logo.
Please consult with Marketing and Brand Strategy prior to soliciting a sponsor or executing a contract agreement for sponsorship in highly visible locations or on any merchandise. Sponsor logos cannot appear in UO primary colors unless the business uses that as their primary color. If the sponsorship logo is going on apparel with a university logo or mark, you will need written approval. For approval, please email email@example.com. As a reminder, the university will not promote businesses listed on our trademark and licensing policies.
