CSUN Graphic Standards Manual

Correct Usage of the Word Mark

The official Word Mark should appear in a prominent position on all communication documents. The Word Mark should appear in all return address blocks. The Word Mark should not be used as body copy in ads, flyers, or other publications. It should be placed prominently and separate from other copy and/or elements in all layouts.

Area of Isolation for the Word Mark

Diagram of the isolation of the CSUN Wordmark

The area surrounding theWord Mark should be equal in height to the capital “N” in Northridge (see example on top).

The Word Mark should not be placed close to distracting design elements and should not become part of a larger “logo.” An exception to the area of isolation is the use of secondary type—college and department names and addresses on stationery. Secondary type should be positioned one “N” below the Word Mark

Minimum Reproduction Size of the Word Mark
