Logos and Usage Guides

Primary Logo

The new University wordmark is the essential asset to be used in order to bring “Adelphi” front and center on all materials produced throughout our institution. The wordmark should never be altered outside of the following guidelines.

The Adelphi University wordmark should be primarily reproduced in gold. When gold is not an option or the background does not create enough contrast, it can also be reproduced in brown or knocked out in white. If full color is not available, the wordmark is available in black or white.

Lettermark

The University mark was created for use when placing the entire wordmark is not possible, such as the small space allotted for social media profile photos. The mark can be surrounded by a gold, brown or black box or set over a pattern or photo that is specific to the department using it. It is important to maintain consistency with our mark when used for public consumption. Please do not misuse or alter our logo in any way. No other logos, marks or graphic elements should appear within the exclusion zone. This area is determined by the height and width of the “A” in the wordmark on the top, bottom and sides.

The mark can also be used for internal signage in an athletics setting, such as in the center of the field or court.

Additionally, the University mark can be used as a design element as long as the primary wordmark is displayed on the same piece.
