Logo Usage

University Logo

Loyola’s official institutional logo is available in the following four formats:

Horizontal Graphic With Logotype

Vertical Graphic With Logotype

Stacked Logotype

Horizontal Logotype

The standalone type logos without the Marquette graphic (logos 3 and 4) are acceptable in instances where space is limited or other graphic elements and photos make the page appear “too busy.”

The only acceptable colors for the official institutional logos are black, white, or Loyola Maroon (PMS 202).


clear space example

mandatory clear space
The institutional logos should always appear surrounded by a  minimum clear space equal to the letter “O” in “LOYOLA.” 

Flag Logo Examples Redflag logo

A secondary logo to be used on print covers, email headers, marketing collateral headers and other instances to informally identify the institution with the brand. Should never be used alone, but always in partnership with the institutional logo, which must appear at least once on the same piece. (i.e., at the bottom of the ad or on the back cover of a booklet.)

When using the flag secondary logo with a subject box, limit title/topic to one line of type and one box/level.Flag Logo Examples Black

unacceptable uses

It is extremely important for brand success that the Loyola logos be used and displayed correctly. This includes always using the correct typefaces and the correct relative positioning and size of all elements.

The examples on this page illustrate unacceptable displays.

Unacceptable Uses

  6. Do not separate the Marquette silhouette from the Loyola logos and use it as a freestanding graphic or mark.
  7. Do not tilt or rotate the logos, flag, or signatures (An obvious exception to this guideline would be a vertical street pole banner with “LOYOLA” appearing as the primary element in a vertical position by necessity.)
