Official Logos and Usage

The Jackson Hall logo is the official mark for Kentucky State University. The logo is considered a signature for our campus and should be included in all university communications.

Colleges, departments, and administrative offices may add their unit name to the horizontal logo as a unit signature.

To strengthen the university’s visual identity, a central aspect of our brand, the creation of additional logos is restricted. Some secondary logos exist, and in rare instances, secondary logos are allowable. All publications with a secondary logo must still include the Jackson Hall logo. Secondary logos should be subordinate to the Jackson Hall logo.

If there is a compelling need to produce a unique logo, you must contact Office of Enrollment Management and Brand Identity to discuss your needs. Logos other than the official University mark will be considered under the following circumstances:

  • When a grant or external partnership requires a unique logo
  • For administrative units that have compelling needs for a unique identity
  • For special university-sponsored events
  • For special university-wide initiatives

All logos and guidelines for their use must either be created by or approved by the Office of Enrollment Management and Brand Identity before implementation. All existing logos, as of March 2015, are subject to review and approval.
