As a world-class institution, it is important to maintain first-rate, professional standards in our print and online publications. A university style guide is intended to provide a definitive resource for writers and others seeking to use our brand, offering a consistent approach to how we present ourselves to our internal and external audiences -- students, faculty, staff, alumni, volunteers, government, media, community partners, and others. It is a guidebook on how to properly and most effectively use the SGU brand.
Our brand identity is the management of our image which is comprised of our University name, logo, color, and type palettes and the guidelines for their use. Our identity standards have been developed to ensure we project a consistent look, tone, and point of view for St. George's University. The SGU standards define the parameters for the creation of promotional and communication materials for the University. Our objective is to establish and maintain a clear and consistent brand identity in all internal and external communications.
The University's position as a leader in international education will be supported and strengthened by our recognizable identity. The St. George's University brand will have more power and be more effective through the consistent application of these standards.
The university style guide is compiled and managed by the Office of University Communications and Publications.
Due to different printing processes and paper stocks, maintaining consistent color matches can be difficult. An ink-matching system known as Pantone® Matching System or PMS® is used to provide standards for color matching. The PMS or CMYK (four-color process) equivalents given should be provided in any printing situation as specifications for ink colors. Each color shown is formulated to provide good results on both coated (C) or uncoated (U) paper stocks.
