Logo Usage and Downloads

What is a logo?

A logo or wordmark is a recognizable and distinctive graphic design, stylized name, unique symbol, or other device for identifying an institution, organization, or business. When used consistently, it helps create a clear and memorable identity and becomes a symbol that provides audiences with immediate and powerful recognition and association with the institution.

Clayton State University has three official marks—the Clayton State University wordmark, university seal, and athletic logo. The wordmark may be widely-used by the Clayton State community, while the university seal and athletic logos are available for more selective use.

Who owns the University’s logos?

University identity marks are the property of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and are registered trademarks. The Board of Regents sets guidelines for how the marks can be used and requires that individual institutions assume responsibility for monitoring and protecting such usage.

These guidelines apply to anyone who might use a Clayton State University identity mark: faculty, staff, students, departments, internal and external organizations, printers, businesses, and vendors. Authorization for appropriate and accurate use of Clayton State’s identity marks is essential to compliance with Board of Regents policy (7.11.8 Trademarks) as well as to positively promoting the University.

*IMPORTANT - Logos are not to be altered in any way. This includes changes in color, shape and dimension. The official University logos are legally protected trademarks appearing on official communications (online and print), partnerships and sponsorships. Failure to abide by these strict guidelines may result in the need to reproduce materials at the cost of the unit or department who created such materials. The Office of Marketing and Communications must approve any alternate uses of the logo.

College and Unit Signatures

In addition, a standardized signature system provides options for university colleges and other units to combine a unit name with the wordmark.

The Clayton State University signature system enables each college and unit to connect its name with the University wordmark to provide a consistent form of unit identification that is immediately recognizable as Clayton State University. Existing unit logos may not be used and new unit logos may not be developed.
