The BGSU logo is the official identifier and may be used only for purposes that will promote the goals of the University. It must appear on all University communications. The logo is a registered trademark of Bowling Green State University.

The logo must appear in a prominent location on all printed materials. The BGSU logo can be downloaded from the BGSU Graphic Standards Web site.

Other logos that represent an individual academic/administrative area should never appear on stationery. This includes office letterheads, news releases, envelopes and business cards. However, individual area marks can be used on materials other than stationery as long as the BGSU logo appears prominently

One-Color Applications
When using a single color, the BGSU logo should be printed in orange, brown (Official Identity Colors) or black.

Two or More Color Applications
If using the BGSU logo in two colors, only orange and black may be used as shown. The BGSU logo may be reversed to white if appearing on a dark background.
