IUP nameplate

Because the university communicates with a broad variety of audiences, some of whom do not recognize the letters “IUP” as representing a university, the IUP nameplate incorporating the full name of the university was developed in 2003.

The nameplate is used in support of the primary IUP identifiers (the IUP wave artmark or the IUP logo), and there is a graphic system for combining both into a single unit to clearly communicate that IUP is Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

In the IUP nameplate, the name Indiana University of Pennsylvania is set using the font Garamond Light Condensed. No other fonts are acceptable for use in the IUP nameplate.

IUP logo/nameplate layout

The traditional IUP logo may be used in conjunction with the IUP nameplate when used in proximity to, or layered over top of, a larger wave design element. (See the section discussing the wave design element, and see the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex layout sample below.)

The height of the dividing rule will be the height of the IUP logo, and the height of the capital letters in the nameplate will be the height of the inner portions of the IUP logo, as per the guides above.

“Reversing” the IUP Logo/Nameplate 

The combination may also be used on darker backgrounds, against which the IUP wave artmark would not be fully visible. On a darker background, the IUP logo, dividing line, and IUP nameplate will all be “reversed,” i.e., will appear in white. See example application at right.

Preferred positioning of the IUP logo/nameplate is at bottom center or top center of layout.
