Together we design guide
The TOGETHER WE graphic treatment is a complement to the WOU standard Graphic Identity Guide and should be used for 2017-18.
The TOGETHER WE design heavily utilizes colors from WOU’s current university graphic standards. However, WOU gray should be used more frequently for large color elements.
- Primary colors: WOU Red and White
- Secondary colors: Black, WOU Gray and WOU Silver
- See the full color details at: https://wou.edu/marcom/publications/logoidentity-guide/
Typography is important in conveying message and overall look. The university’s standard typefaces have been chosen for readability and ability to pair with the university’s logos.
- Primary: Avenir (Lt Std) [Arial is an alternate]
- Secondary: Minion [Garamond is an alternate]
- Avoid: most script typefaces
The TOGETHER WE SUCCEED tagline should appear on all materials. There are two primary options to add the tagline to your design: 1. As part of the primary university mark, 2. Using the corner sticker – see below.
University mark and tagline
The primary university mark has been adapted to include the TOGETHER WE SUCCEED tagline. The tagline should never be manually added. Always use a downloaded version.
- Download logos with tagline
- Colors: multiple options exist
- Note: The primary logo is only directly paired with TOGETHER WE SUCCEED
- For use of additional taglines, use the standard university or your department-specific logo and a corner sticker (below).
- The university’s graphic standards should always be applied.
