Northwestern Wordmark and Lockup

We have a wordmark that identifies the University, as well as new lockups that associate the wordmark with each school and department name. Access files for the main University wordmark and formal lockup below.


Our wordmark is the primary way to identify the University, connecting the entities within our institution.

Formal Lockup

In the formal lockup, the wordmark is paired with the official University seal.

By reserving the seal for formal, high-profile, and sophisticated communications, we can elevate it to a place of honor and importance. The formal lockup can be used in either a stacked or horizontal configuration. Use the version most appropriate for the format at hand. The seal must always be used in conjunction with the wordmark in one of these lockups.

The seal is best reserved for instances such as diplomas, commencement and convocation, formal events, and engravings and architectural etchings. 

The formal lockup is only available upon request. Please contact Leslie-Anne Mock with any inquiries.
