The University of Warwick brand guidelines

Our brand guidelines are here to ensure that all our communications reflect and reinforce our identity.   

Please note that the brand strategy (narrative, positioning, tagline etc.) are currently under development, and a new version of the brand guidelines document will be uploaded to include this information once it has been confirmed.


The University of Warwick logo printed on a wall



On this page, you'll find information about our master logo, including how to use it in different colourways, how it should be positioned and how to display it alongside a partner logo. 

We also have our Crest, which is only to be used in specific circumstances to preserve our heritage and its importance to our brand.





Our brand colours have been refined to create a more unified palette and better digital accessibility. 

Here you will find our full colour palette, detailing our primary brand colour with secondary and tertiary colours offering bright and dark accents. 





Using consistent fonts helps ensure that all our communications are clear and accessible, and clearly recognisable as coming from The University of Warwick.
