Official University Logo
The UC Merced logo should be the first choice when choosing a logo and used on all materials.
The secondary UC Merced logo may be used when a single line is needed.
The primary format for co-branded logos includes the UC Merced logo and the name of the school or department. For sub-departments the school name must be present. An exception to not include the school name is valid under some circumstances for readability. There are two layouts offered, landscape and portrait. To obtain your logo files, please complete a graphic design request form.
