CSUDH Brand Guidelines
The official seal of California State University, Dominguez Hills signifies the academic character of the university and is appropriately used in support of official CSUDH policies, decisions, ceremonies or other formal actions of the CSUDH as an academic institution.
In order to maintain its integrity and effectiveness, the seal should not be used for relatively informal or routine materials, or for materials not directly related to academic purposes.
The CSUDH seal is used primarily as a signal of authentication. Within a publication, it will typically appear on the inside front or inside back cover, or on the first or last page—whichever is appropriate. The CSUDH logo should be used predominantly for all general promotion uses, such as marketing publications, most products or merchandise, and annual reports. A graphic representation of the seal is appropriate on such printed materials as the following:
- ceremonial documents, such as awards,
certificates, diplomas and proclamations
- commemorative display items created
for limited distribution, of high quality,
and for a specific purpose
- formal stationery
- formal invitations and notecards
- legal documents
- financial documents, such as the official university budget, checks and other
financial papers, where it is essentially a mark of guarantee
- CSUDH policy manuals
- signage in limited usage
