Digital Media Guidelines

Applications for Download

Icons and names developed for apps must align with current brand identity standards as detailed here:

  • Do not use any university logo, lockup, mark or the formal academic name, ‘University at Buffalo’, for the app's name or within its icon.
  • The letters UB are permissible to use along with the program/product to name the app - however they should not be reflected within or as part of the app's icon.
  • Generic iconography should visually represent the app’s functionality or purpose.
  • Use brand colors, UB Blue and Hayes Hall White, for the app icon.

DON'T use the interlocking UB as part of the application icon.

DON'T use the letters UB as part of the application icon or use non-brand colors.
