Information on NYU logo variations

Color Variations

The logo is available in several different color variations. They are:

  • Single Color - Purple: This variation should be used whenever possible on all full-color documents and publications.
  • Single Color - Black: If you do not want to print in full color, the logo can also appear in black.
  • Knockout Color: A variation on the logo that uses white text on a color background.

File Types

  • EPS: Whenever possible, this is the file-type you should use. However, this logo can not be used in MS Word or Powerpoint. EPS is Vector based art and is ideal for most graphic design and desktop publishing purposes. This file can be imported into Illustrator, Quark, InDesign, Photoshop, and other desktop publishing software.
  • JPG: This is the version you should download for use in Word, Powerpoint and for other simple design projects.
  • PNG: You can also use this file-type in Word, Powerpoint and other simple design projects. It does not have the same color depth as the JPG, but it does have a transparent background which is useful for placing the logos on top of a color background.
