Correct Logo Usage Examples

Below are several examples of correct logo usage.

If the words “University of Central Arkansas” are used as the only identifier, the wordmark should be used.

When placing the logo on a colored background or photo, the white box MUST be behind the logo to ensure optimum readability. The TM symbol should also be reversed.

When placing the logo mark with wordmark on a background photo, the wording may be reversed out according to readability.

In some cases, it may be design appropriate to typeset “University of Central Arkansas” or “UCA” in a specific style of font. However, when doing this, an official logo must also be used as a university identifier.

Incorrect Logo Usage Examples

In order to maintain the integrity of the UCA logo, it should not be redrawn, reproduced or modified in any way; this includes shading, beveling, rotating, turning or inverting the logo. The shape, size and color of the typeface should also never be altered. Please do not use the logo in a manner that damages its ability to clearly and consistently represent the university.

Get Rid of Those Old Logos

You should delete any existing logo files you may have; they are incorrect and not official marks. You may only use the official logos available by request.

Box Window Background

When the UCA box window logo is used on a colored background, a white box MUST be behind the logo. The only exception is engraving or on one color printing on promotional items.

Distribution of Marks

Official university marks are not to be shared, forwarded or distributed without permission.
