Official University Logos

The University of Idaho logomark — which includes the “University of Idaho” wordmark and the “I” — is a powerful symbol of our great university. As the most recognized brand element, the U of I logo should always be used consistently:

  • The university’s logos and graphics are registered trademarks and should not be altered. We do not permit the development or use of alternate logos.
  • The vertical stacking of the “I” over the wordmark is the preferred orientation, but there are also horizontal options.
  • The University of Idaho wordmark should never appear alone (always with the “I”), but the “I” may sometimes be used alone as a graphic element.

Logo Colors

Gold and silver have been with the University of Idaho since its founding. The primary logomark colors are Pride Gold and black. When metallic spot color printing is available, Metallic Gold may be used. Options are available to render the logomark with black or white text.

Logo Architecture

The “I” letterform is carefully designed for consistency and broad recognition. It is built to exact specifications and should not be modified or changed in anyway. The image to the left shows line weights and dimensions.

Logo Structure

Our logo is the symbol of the university and must be used consistently. There are two acceptable versions of the logomark: The primary vertical stacking and an alternate horizontal version.

Clear Space

Always separate the U of I logo from other accompanying text and graphic elements by a minimum specified distance of clear space. The distance of clear space is defined by the height of the lowercase “v” letter in the wordmark.
