Safe Zones and Minimum Size

Safe Zone
Each of the USI Academic marks has an established safe zone. This safe zone is intended to maintain the mark's integrity and to avoid visual confusion. No other type or graphic element (including folds, trims or edges) should fall within the safe zone shown.

The safe zone for each of the USI Academic marks is equal to one fourth the overall height of the mark. This spacing is uniform on all sides of the mark. See the example below for each mark's specific safe zone.



Minimum Size
Each of the USI Academic marks has a minimum allowable size. In order to ensure clear reproduction and legibility, the marks must not be used any smaller than the sizes shown below. It is preferred that when possible, the marks be used larger than their minimum size.
