Purpose of this Guide
Strengthening the UCSF brand is vital to our future. This guide was designed to help tell the UCSF story in a consistent and compelling way. When we pair a strong logo system with a rich palette of color, type and imagery, we form the basis of the UCSF identity system. They are tools for storytelling that build strong emotional connections to the UCSF brand and invite immediate associations to our schools, research centers, patient facilities and everything we collectively represent.
Every encounter with UCSF — whether in person, online or through our services — is an opportunity to share our story. Applying these guidelines is essential to building our brand — with a consistent voice and look that is unmistakably UCSF.
