Approval of UCSF Collateral

Consistent application of the UCSF visual identity system is essential in maintaining the integrity of the UCSF brand. A flexible visual identity system was to help entities show their personality while benefiting from the association with UCSF.

 

Please contact University Relations prior to starting any marketing or communications project. Ensure the designer or agency you are working with has been trained on the new brand system, and can work with you to properly apply the elements of the system. Once your designer has created your material(s), send a PDF to identity@ucsf.edu for review. Please allow a minimum of three business days for feedback. Larger projects will take more time to review. When developing your project timeline, plan for multiple rounds of review.

 

If you are working on a more extensive project and need further guidance or counsel, contact the Brand Communications Team at identity@ucsf.edu with the nature of your request and we will get back to you.
