The academic signature represents all Washington State University departments and offices. Individual unit or secondary logos should not be developed or used with University communications. The names of individual units should be presented using simple typography to avoid competing logos.
Never alter or redraw the signature elements. They should not be rearranged, rotated, animated, shadowed, or rendered in three-dimensional form without prior authorization. Do not place the signature elements inside any other shape or combine them with any other symbol or graphic. The logotype has been customized for the University, therefore campus units should always reproduce the signature or symbol from authorized digital files or authorized reproduction-quality originals.
