Identity Guide - Logos and Lockups

Logos

These are the official marks of the University of Nebraska NCTA campus. At NCTA, we maintain a consistent use of the NU System Logo in conjunction with the NCTA Lockup, found below.

Lockups and Size Relationships

These are the clear space rules and proportions. The wordmark/icon proportion must not exceed proportions below, but the wordmark CAN be smaller that the proportions shown here but must not be reduced below minimum size.

 

NCTA Logo with wordmark proportions
Don't exceed these proportions:*

CLEAR SPACE
One inside red N serif height
( Draw a square to find appropriate size)
NCTA Lockup minimum height
|- .5 in -| Minimum Height
CLEAR SPACE**
One s from wordmark (horizontal spacing)
One s turned sideways (vertical spacing)
NCTA wordmark minimum width
|- .625 in -| Minimum Width

Note
If you have a multiple-page publication (or front and back) place NCTA lockup on the front and the wordmark on the back.
* Must use these two marks on communication, unless there are space limitations.

** Always base clear space and minimum size from inside the serifs.
