Using IUP Athletics Logos on Color Backgrounds

Frequently it may be desirable to place the athletics identity logos or youthmarks on a field of color. As shown in the examples below, all of the artwork has been created with a built-in outline shape that allows it to work clearly on any background. For this reason it is not necessary to alter the logos before placing them on any color, photograph, or complex background.

The IUP logos should never be reversed. All IUP logos may be used in all white on either IUP Crimson or black backgrounds (or on other dark-color backgrounds with prior approval). The all-white version of the IUP logos should never be used on light-color backgrounds (such as IUP Gray) or on any complex backgrounds.

It is never permissible for any photograph, pattern, or complex background to show through logos (as in the example at the far right of the bottom row).

* All-white logos may only be used on either IUP Crimson or black backgrounds (or on other dark-color backgrounds with prior approval).
