Signature and Logo Policies

The School of Liberal Arts follows the standards established by Indiana University’s visual identity policies. These standards established the common signatures for all Indiana University entities and prohibit the use of unit logos. All units of the School of Liberal Arts will follow both School and University standards and will not develop or use identifiers (logos) that are not in compliance or that create a representation that appears to create a status independent of the School of Liberal Arts, IUPUI or Indiana University.

For assistance in obtaining your unit signature or advice on its use, please contact our office. An official signature file is required for the production of letterhead or business cards. There is a cost of $115 for the creation of new signatures, payable through your university account.
