We have collected a few items from UA Brand Standards for quick reference.

Wordmark usage

There are two different versions of your department’s wordmark. There is an official wordmark with The University of Alabama name in it that is best for events that are used on and off-campus. The script A wordmark is best for inner campus usage. Please remember that the Capstone A version must be accompanied by “The University of Alabama” nameplate if it is being used for anything taking place away from campus.

Secondary Colors

Our secondary palette was created to provide additional creative inspiration. The colors should be used sparingly and must not exceed 20% of the total color palette of any design. The colors should complement the design and are best utilized when needed for variety such as in infographics, charts and icons for long-form marketing collateral.

Tips for secondary colors:

  • Black should not be used as a primary color element.
  • Do not use secondary colors, other than black, for UA logos.
  • Secondary colors are not approved for use as a prominent, signifying color for a college, division, center, institute, department, etc.
  • Tints and shades of the colors are prohibited.
