The Soaring Hawk Artmark

  • Soaring Hawk Artmark

    The soaring hawk artmark provides a graphic representation of the university’s mascot, the crimson hawk, for all uses in which the IUP Athletics Crimson Hawks graphics would not be appropriate.

    The hawk should always be situated and appear to be flying from left to right. It should never be flipped or tilted to appear to be flying up, down, or diagonally.

    The hawk may be cropped, but its head should always appear.


    201 white black

    The soaring hawk can appear in Pantone 201 IUP Crimson against white or light-colored backgrounds and should be reversed out in white on all dark applications.

    It may also be reproduced in black and white. It should not be reproduced in IUP Gray or in non-IUP colors without prior approval of the IUP art director in the Communications and Marketing office.
