Xavier University Unveils New Logo

| August 16, 2010

The Xavier University Evanston campus has undergone a great deal of physical change lately, but starting August 16, Xavier will sport another change that will be everywhere you look.

The University is unveiling a new logo/brand created by Lipman Hearne of Chicago, the nation’s leading marketing and communications firm for the nonprofit sector. Xavier sought a logo which would leverage the distinctiveness of the well-known ‘X’ while incorporating Xavier’s historic Jesuit mission and academic pedigree.

The new logo, in jpg or eps form, as well as guidelines for use of the logo is available at: www.xavier.edu/brand.

This logo will represent Xavier University as a whole. (Please note Xavier University’s ATHLETIC logos have NOT changed.)

The colors are dark blue, metallic silver and white. The shield reflects tradition, academic excellence, prestige and power. The cross and fleur-de-lis, a symbol with rich, religious history, reflects Xavier’s spiritual heritage and mission of service to others.

Note to Media: Xavier University asks that you please send this to your graphics departments and replace any logos you may have on file with this new version. Please use this logo in reference to stories pertaining to Xavier University.

Again, please note Xavier University’s ATHLETIC LOGOS have NOT changed.
