Environmental Branding

Branding your environment.

A branded environment expresses our personality by using our brand assets, color palette, typography, and graphic elements. The images below serve as inspiration*;  contractors/vendors should work directly with their Facilities project manager. 

*Athletics and Feinberg School of Medicine follow their own brand guidelines.
