Anniversary and Event Logos

Occasionally, LSU will celebrate anniversaries, events or initiatives that require their own logo. In these cases, special logos are developed by the Division of Strategic Communications to facilitate consistent presentation and promotion across the university. So as to not confuse the public or undermine the goal of celebrating a university event, it is necessary that these logos leverage the LSU brand and work within the LSU brand guidelines.

Anniversary Logos

The following must be followed when developing a logo of this kind:

  • LSU Departments celebrating quarterly anniversaries (i.e., 25th, 50th, 75th, 100th, etc.) will be permitted to have a customized anniversary logo. They may also opt to use the pre-designed anniversary logos.
  • Programs conducted by a department celebrating a quarterly anniversary may use a pre-designed logo that can be customized with the program name.
  • Non-quarterly anniversaries (i.e., 30th, 27th, 45th, etc.) may be celebrated and noted in copy or with a tagline, but a logo may not be created for those events.
  • The Division of Strategic Communications is responsible for the development of all anniversary logos. Contact us through your account manager or at the beginning of your planning process to initiate a logo development project.
  • Anniversary logos are developed and distributed with their own set of brand guidelines that must be followed.
  • Logos for anniversaries are temporary and must have a designated start and end date for their usage.
  • Anniversary logos are not meant replace the LSU or departmental logos, but to be used in conjunction with those primary logos.

Campus-Wide Event and Initiative Logos

The following must be followed when developing a logo of this kind:

  • Only university-wide events or initiatives that have been approved by the Division of Strategic Communications may use one. Contact us through your account manager at the beginning of your event planning process to determine if a logo will be permitted for your event.
  • The Division of Strategic Communications is responsible for the development of all campus-wide event or special initiative logos. Contact us through your account manager or at the beginning of your planning process to initiate a logo development project.
  • Campus-wide event or special initiative logos are developed and distributed with their own set of brand guidelines that must be followed.
  • Logos for events are temporary and must have a designated start and end date for their usage.
  • Campus-wide event and special Initiative logos may incorporate the LSU logo. In these cases, it may be determined that the special logo may replace the LSU or departmental logos, instead of being used in conjunction with those primary logos.
