Each .zip file contains four print-ready versions of the logo (.eps, .tif, .jpg, .png). The .eps file should be used if your application is compatible. It is the highest quality and can be resized without loss in resolution.
The USI Patch and USI Emblem files are available for use in certain applications. Please review the guidelines its download page.
Resizing the Logo
Please note: When changing the size of the logo for your document, it is important that you maintain the correct proportions. i.e. in Microsoft Word always resize using the corners of the picture box only. This will automatically retain the correct proportions. Do not stretch or condense the image in any manner to "fit."
Avoid borrowing a logo from a web site for printing purposes. Doing so will result in an image that is grainy and may have some shift in color. It is important that the USI logo be represented with quality and consistency.
Multi-color version - The USI official logo is a three-color design composed of the red and blue colors of the University and black. The colors may not be reversed from the standard design. The official colors for USI are Pantone 540 (blue) and Pantone 7427 (red). No other shades of red and blue may be used. The University name color is officially black. If it is necessary to have only two colors (red/blue), the name color may change to USI blue only. No other color combination is permitted.
One-color version - When using a one-color version, the logo may be any single color, including black, which complements the piece on which it is being used.
