Design Toolkit

At Penn State, our visual identity strengthens and solidifies our brand. It is the responsibility of everyone who creates and disseminates College of Medicine content to adhere to our identity standards and requirements.

Below you will find templates that use brand fonts, colors, graphic patterns and character styles that enable faculty, staff and students to create on-brand content. If you don’t see a template that fits your needs or you would like to discuss your project further, please email



Text boxes may be shifted, shrunken, enlarged or deleted depending on the amount of content that is inserted. Font size may also be reduced or enlarged. When drafting content for the text boxes, keep the content as short and concise as possible and use the prescribed text boxes as a guide for the length of the content.

Do not change the fonts within the templates.

Follow The Associated Press Stylebook. Please consult our Editorial Style Guide for specific examples.

Design Elements

Only the Penn State College of Medicine logo should appear on these materials. Including additional logos diminishes our brand.

Do not alter the prescribed colors. The colors selected for these templates are Penn State College of Medicine colors, based on the Penn State Brand Palette.

Elements and logos that are locked in the background should not be altered.
