All UB lockups require a certain amount of space around them to maximize their presence and prevent other graphic elements from interfering with legibility.
A space equal to the height of the interlocking UB should be observed around the perimeter of the mark.
The interlocking UB cannot be used alone or in conjunction with another word or graphic to create a new mark. A secondary reference to the university should be clearly visible.
A space equal to the height of the interlocking UB mark should be observed around the entire lockup construction. The clear space guidance noted here is for general design applications. This specification should never be used as a way to create a new logo, mark or lockup. If the intent is to place a single word or short phrase near the master brand mark and to reuse this construction in multiple instances then you have effectively created a new logo or mark and this is not permitted. The extended clear space rules would apply when a single word or short phrase is being placed near the master brand mark.
A space equal to the height of the interlocking UB mark should be observed around the entire lockup construction.
If you choose to place an endorsed brand mark next to the master brand lockup using a divider line, a space equal to the width of the interlocking UB should be used between these marks. Otherwise, please observe the extended clear space rule.
When multiple logos or lockups appear on a single communication, space equal to three widths of the interlocking UB should be observed around the UB logo, making sure that no other logos, lockups, words or short phrases on the piece infringe on that space.
A space equal to the distance from the tip of the horn to the top of the head should be observed around the entire perimeter of the mark.
The spirit mark should not be used alone or in place of any of our academic marks. It is reserved for applications that support student life and the student experience. Always include a secondary reference to the university or its athletic word mark—the latter is restricted only to athletic usage.
No elements of this mark should be altered, including cut-out areas such as the eyes and brows.
A space equal to the height of the buffalo should be observed around the entire perimeter of the crest.
This clear space rule applies only to merchandise. The crest may be used as a supporting graphic element or watermark in print and digital applications. It should always be associated with the formal academic name, but never locked up.
