University Seal clear zone
Upon approval to display the University Seal, be sure to avoid crowding our Seal with other imagery – such as text, photography, illustrations, color breaks or rule lines. A “clear zone” is the minimum amount of space to remain free of other imagery. This minimum space requirement also applies to page trim and folds. The clear zone is proportional to the outer diameter of the Seal, and its border is concentric to the diameter as indicated in the diagram below.
Adhering to clear-zone guidelines will best ensure legal protection of our University Seal by minimizing confusion over its appearance.
