Usage guidelines

Alterations

Alterations to CU Presents or CU Boulder logos are never allowed. Please always use provided artwork.

Clear space

  • Our standard for minimum required clear space between the CU Boulder logo and other graphic assets present is measured by the height of the interlocking CU present in your piece.
  • Follow a clear space standard for the CU Presents logo present in your piece—matching or exceeding that of the CU Boulder logo—that is consistent for all pieces in a category (all postcards, all programs, etc).

Color modes

  • The all-black and all-white logos should be used only in situations where grayscale or one-color is the permitted color mode.
  • CU Presents doesn’t use grayscale versions of CU Boulder logos.

Placement

  • The CU Presents logo is always located in the “hero” position (when an icon is not used), with the CU Boulder logo in the “signoff” position. Depending on the specs of your piece, the placement of these positions may change.
  • Logo placement should be consistent across all pieces in a category (all postcards, all programs, etc).
  • See Layout Examples for more details.

Sizing

  • The minimum logo size for the CU Presents logo is 1.5” wide.
  • The minimum logo size for all CU Boulder logos is 1.5” wide, which ensures that the “University of Colorado Boulder” wordmark is always at least 1” wide per university standards.
  • The CU Presents logo will, at a minimum, be the same size (width) as the CU Boulder logo present in your piece.
  • Logo sizes should be consistent across all pieces in a category (all postcards, all programs, etc).
