Logo Request

Be sure you are using the correct logo for your activity or publication! The University logo is to be used for all communications that represent the University, especially to its external audiences, in the form of print or electronic communications, publications, apparel or merchandise. This is considered to be the University’s “official” logo. The Polar Bear (athletics) logo is to be used primarily by athletics, but also may be used for alumni and student groups or activities for publications or events that primarily impact an internal ONU audience. Apparel with the Polar Bear logo is permitted, but design must be approved by the Office of Communications and Marketing prior to printing. The seal of the University is only to be used for special, official University occasions and on documents related to commencement, inauguration, diplomas, etc.

Any Ohio Northern University group or organization sponsoring an activity or event must receive design approval from Communications and Marketing before producing or printing materials, merchandise or apparel with the University logo or word mark.

Logos may not be altered in any way without the express permission of the Office of UCM.

Please explain how you intend to use the ONU logo. Please refer to the terms of use for rules regarding official ONU marks.
Federal, state, and common laws govern the University’s rights to its Marks. These laws place an obligation on the University to control its Marks to avoid misrepresentation of the University’s relationship to a product or service. Licensing others to use the Marks and monitoring their use provides the needed control. The name “Northern” and “Ohio Northern University,” in addition to the new mark, logotypes, and the University seal, are trademarked and owned by the University. Any commercial or third-party uses of the University’s name, logotypes, mark or seal, or any uses that run counter to the policies in this guide, will be considered trademark infringement and may be punishable by law.
