General Guidelines

To ensure signage on campus maintains a professional appearance, please adhere to the guidelines below.

  • Signage should contain the contact information and department logo for the sponsoring department. This will help viewers understand who is acting as voice for the signage.
  • UVU Logo's should be current versions of approved logos. Old or outdated logos will not be approved and will cause the submission to be rejected.
  • Copyrighted content cannot be displayed on UVU's digital signage without the appropriate release from the content owner.
  • Signage must be submitted at specific resolutions to ensure the best appearance on digital signage. Please see the specific guidelines below for the specific requirements.

Banner Design

Banners should include as little text as possible.  Special care should be taken to ensure that dates, times, and locations of events are clearly written and sized appropriately.

Provided templates include guides to help when placing text.  Avoid placing text characters directly on the guides themselves when possible.  These indicate where the seams between the displays will be.

For event specific banners, the upper right hand corner should not include any text elements.  This area is reserved to include a “Today” or “Right Now” graphic on the day and time of the event.
