Branding is about one voice/one face, so to create varying identities is counter to our objectives
and confusing for the public. Specific colleges, schools, departments, centers, offices
and other similar entities should not print their individual "logos" in lieu of, or
in addition to, the University logo, on any published material. Previously developed
logos may only be used by the colleges on banners at commencement.
Rather, each group is represented with placement of their name in a specified body
of type beneath the logo as shown at left. The department name should be typeset in
Formata Regular, flush left with standard kerning, at 35% of point size of the letter
"M", positioned below the word "MEMPHIS" at minimum clear space.
Departmental names should not appear smaller than 7 point (i.e., the wordmark in a
departmental logo should not measure less than 1.375" wide), nor extend beyond the
line length of the word "MEMPHIS". The name of the department should be set in the
same color as 'The University Of' in the wordmark.
If a departmental name is longer than a single line space allows, a line break should
occur in the name, with leading set to 105% of the type size. If a departmental name
is shorter than a full, single line, kerning may not be adjusted to fill that line
