Natural Sciences and Technical have adopted a policy for the use of logos at the faculties. Read about rules and guidance about:
EXAMPLE: Logotype for Technical Sciences. Aarhus University at the top in capital letters, name of the unit at the bottom in small capitals:
Example logotype for a department:
Example: secondary logo for the thematic interdisciplinary centre WATEC:
As a general rule, both the logo and the seal appear on all products, but the seal can be omitted for functional or aesthetic reasons.
Aarhus University’s seal:
Can I choose a different version of the AU logo where my unit is at the top?
No. Nat and Tech have decided that we only use the version of the logo named 'Variant 2a', where Aarhus University is at the top.
Who is allowed to have a secondary logo?
As a rule, at Nat and Tech only thematic centres, basic research centres (Centres of Excellence), VILLUM centres, Lundbeck centres and centres under the Novo Nordisk Foundationn Challenge Programme can be assigned a secondary logo.
We have made a draft for a secondary logo, can we get it approved?
A secondary logo must be designed professionally and be related to AU's design line graphically. However, it might well be based on your own ideas and wishes for what the logo should contain. Send your draft to Nat-Tech Communications, and we will communicate with the graphic department.
How to use the secondary logo
The secondary logo never occurs alone, but always in the context of the AU logo. The AU logo and secondary logo must not be placed so close together that they appear as a single logo, and the secondary logo must not be graphically dominant. Read more about the use of secondary logos.
Where to place the secondary logo
In graphic materiel, the general rule is that the AU logo must be positioned in the top left corner or the bottom left corner. The secondary is usually placed in the lower right corner. On websites, the secondary logo is placed on the right side under the focus field.
