The UT Dallas logo with the state of Texas silhouette is a primary mark of the University and is a distinctly horizontal design. It reinforces the relationship between UTD and both the city of Dallas and the state of Texas.
The UT Dallas logo is a versatile branding element that adapts well to both print and promotional usage that require a horizontal image. The UT Dallas with the full name of the University is sufficient on its own, but the secondary version requires the wordmark to be displayed prominently somewhere on the same page.
Branding for schools, centers, departments, programs and other institutional entities is secondary to the primary brand of The University of Texas at Dallas. No logo or mark may be created for these secondary units. Instead, refer to the School Lockups page for correct sub-branding guidelines.
