The Staffordshire University Logo

Our corporate logo is just one of our brand elements, but visually it is the most important. Care must always be taken to ensure it is correctly used.

The Staffordshire University name and logo are both registered trademarks. The correct use of both name and logo is essential. If you are at all unsure, please do not hesitate to ask.

Using the corporate logo on a coloured background

The corporate logo can appear on a coloured background. When the logo appears on a white background always use the colour logo. When the logo appears on a red or black background always use the white logo. Avoid printing the logo on colours other than white, black or red wherever possible.

Using the corporate logo on a photographic background

When printing the corporate logo on photographic backgrounds always ensure the logo has maximum legibility. Ensure the logo appears on a calm area of a photograph. On light photographic backgrounds use the colour logo and on dark photographic backgrounds use the white logo.
