Logos and Wordmarks

The SFA Spirit Logo is the primary graphic component of our identity system. Use the logo carefully as it reflects directly on the university.

Logo guidelines:

  • Use the purple logo on all color pieces.
  • Do not remove the white outline around the logo.
  • Provide a clear space around the logo. There should be no distracting elements.
  • The SFA Spirit Logo should be used on every piece of marketing collateral.
  • Do not alter, stretch or tilt the logo.

Which logo or wordmark graphic type should you use?
Please select the correct graphic type depending upon how the logo or wordmark will be used.

  • PDF with CMYK for four-color process print publications and vendors
  • PDF with Spot 267 for spot-color print publications
  • JPG for websites or emails
  • PNG for websites or emails requiring a transparent background
