Web Graphic Identity

UND Web graphic identity style and standards were developed at the request of the President of The University of North Dakota and with endorsement of the President’s Cabinet. Changes and additions to these regulations will be made from time to time. The effective date of this version is the year 2008. Questions and comments should be directed to and hard copy versions of UND graphic identity regulations and procedures may be obtained from:

Use of at least the University name and location and often use of the logo or logotype, in prescribed ways, are expected in websites pertaining to the University. These guidelines pertain to those matters.

Graphic Identity and its Benefits

A consistent graphic identity through campus- wide use of the logotype and logo contributes to institutional recognition by providing an element of unified visual appearance even though communications come from hundreds of separate campus units.

This is important for several reasons:

• It projects an image of professionalism and cohesiveness.

• It helps eliminate confusion in the minds of target audiences.

• It helps develop name recognition.

• It unifies the institution and its component parts.

University departments and other entities are parts of the whole, and incorporation of institutional graphic identity benefits everyone.

The Official UND Web Graphic Identification

UND Official Logo

The web logo of The University of North Dakota is the interlocking UND letters with the flame in the “D”.

IN MOST CASES IT IS PREFERABLE, WHERE POSSIBLE, TO USE THE FOLLOWING MORE COMPLETE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH DAKOTA LOGOTYPE INSTEAD OF ONLY THE LOGO.

The logotype is a combination of the logo and the name of the institution in the officially approved type styles and arrangements.

Regulations on Commercial use of UND Logos

Commercial use of any of UND’s registered trademarks (logo, logotype, seal, athletic logos) requires advance approval and generally involves the payment of royalties to UND. All language and symbols that are associated with UND are protected by federal and state trademark registration. Unauthorized use of them for commercial purposes, public or private, is prohibited. A licensing program has been established to monitor use of these marks in accordance with University policy. All products bearing verbiage or symbols protected by UND are subject to review and approval by the institution. At that time, a determination is made regarding obligations of the producer of the publication or object for royalties. Only manufacturers licensed by UND to reproduce its marks may do so legally. These legal regulations apply to UND entities such as departments, administrative areas, and organizations as well as non-UND users.

Questions about uses for commercial purposes, copyright regulations, and royalties should be addressed to:

The logo or logotype should never be incorporated into a sentence, phrase, or headline as a substitute for the abbreviation “UND” or for the name of the institution.

Logotype, Logo Proportions

As with all logos, or “marks,” the UND logotype and logo are to be used in their original proportions. When resizing a downloaded logo or logotype care should be taken to maintain the original proportions. The width-to-height proportions of the UND logotype and logo are those in the logo section.

UND Type Face Style

The official type style of the logotype is, in its original name, “Friz Quadrata.” It is also identified by various other names in some computer software, including “France.”

Fonts are copyrighted products, and copies of them cannot legally be provided. Like other software, there is a cost for them. There are three basic ways to obtain the font. One is to buy the font from an official retailer. Individual fonts (that is, Friz regular, Friz Bold, Friz italic, each one being an individual font) generally run from $21 to $29, depending upon the source. Some sources, like Adobe, may bundle it as a package: two faces of Friz and two faces of Benguiat, at $80 or more. A family package of Friz, including the regular, regular italic, bold and bold italic, is offered by itcfonts.com. The prime suppliers in this arena are adobe.com, itcfonts.com, and fonts.com. Another retailer is philsfonts.com. Generally, you can rely on these being quality products.
