Short Logo
Contemporary and versatile, the NYU short logo is central to our university-wide visual identity and is used in the majority of central administration communications.  

Long Logo
The long logo is used for outside audiences where the full name adds additional information. It is also used when the communications would benefit from a more formal approach.

Stacked Logo
The stacked logo works well in small spaces and in large applications, like the flags you see on our buildings.

Letterhead Examples

Offset Printed Letterhead Available Online

Color on office printers is inconsistent and will never match the NYU Violet (PMS 2597) branding color. For best results, buy color letterhead through the online i-Buy Marketplace and then imprint the color letterhead by feeding it through the black-and-white laser printer.
