Message From the President
I am pleased to introduce CSUN’s new identity guidelines, which will offer a messaging platform and consistent graphic standards for the university across a variety of communication materials and media.This work reflects nearly a year of collaboration and hard work from faculty, staff, student and alumni leaders, and input from hundreds of campus stakeholders.Using one united voice and a consistent graphic identity system strengthens the impact of our message and leaves a lasting visual impression.

Thank you for taking the time to review this essential guide.
The graphic standards rules and guidelines found here have been developed for several reasons:
- To help those developing creative content for the University to maintain graphic continuity
- To provide a consistent way to clearly and effectively communicate messages
- To help the University protect its image and identity
Why is this necessary?
Our logos, approved typefaces, visual treatments, and “voice” are CSUN’s calling cards — our signatures in the world. As such, it’s critical to use every one of these elements carefully.
It’s important that those of us who work with the CSUN identity have a shared understanding of the elements we use. Working together, we can effectively preserve our image and strong reputation. And continue to build momentum for CSUN well into the future.
