This online Guide is a condensed version of the full Identity Style Guide (PDF) which includes information on logo usage on things like stationery (available through the Purchasing Department), advertising, banners, posters and signage.
Following is a guide on how to use our new name in written communication.
|What Was||Is Now|
|Polytechnic University||Polytechnic Institute of New York University
or Polytechnic Institute of NYU
|Usage: Formal documents issued from the Institute (we will call ourselves the Institute instead of the University)|
|Polytechnic||Polytechnic Institute of NYU, NYU-Poly, Polytechnic
or the Institute
|Usage: Second instance in article, paragraph, etc. for public view, or to non-NYU-Poly and NYU-Poly readers, e.g., correspondence to research partner at another institution. And all subsequent mentions in article, paragraph, etc. for public view; anywhere|
|"Poly" is no longer in use|
We created the logo after extensive research, involving input from faculty, alumni, prospective new undergraduate/graduate students, parents, corporate partners, staff and current students across campuses.
It represents the connection between New York University and Polytechnic and provides a strong, consistent look that supports our mission to excel as a leading, high-quality research institution engaged in education, discovery and innovation with social, intellectual and economic impact in the New York region, the nation and the world.
To establish the full identity of our institution, the logo should be used in its official, unaltered official form, i.e., do not stretch, change colors, enlarge to the point of pixilation, manually type the letterforms, or otherwise modify the logo. The minimum width of the logo is 1 inch.
On the right are examples of the logos we will be working with individual departments to create this summer. All departments must adhere to this visual identity. Under our new affiliation, individual department logos will be eliminated.
PMS 2597 and PMS 368 are the official colors used on our logo. It is important to maintain a consistent use of both colors to support the creation of a strong, recognizable identity. They can be produced using either spot colors or four color process. RGB values should only be used for electronic media, such as the web, PowerPoint presentations, and other applications that are viewed on a computer monitor.
|Pantone 2597 C||85 100 0 0||82 46 145|
|Pantone 368 C||57 0 100 0||123 193 67|
The following supplemental colors may be used in conjunction with the primary brand colors in general communications materials.
|Pantone Process Black C||0 0 0 100||35 31 32|
|Metallic Coated Pantone 877 C||0 0 0 40||167 169 172|
Additional colors may be used in general communications materials beyond the primary and secondary brand colors. Extra colors, however, should complement—and not compete with, or overpower—the primary brand colors. For questions or requests for exceptions to this rule, please contact the Marketing Department.
To the right are the typefaces used in the Polytechnic Institute of NYU stationery system.
Unless approved by the Marketing Department, this tagline should be used whenever the logo appears.
Use the text below where appropriate in your marketing materials and external correspondances.
Polytechnic Institute of New York University (formerly Polytechnic University), an affiliated institute of New York University, is a comprehensive school of engineering, applied sciences, technology and research, and is rooted in a 159-year tradition of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship: i2e.
