KENNESAW STATE PRIMARY ATHLETICS LOGOS
Kennesaw State’s primary athletics logos are the preferred marks to represent Kennesaw State Athletics. The two primary logos may be used interchangeably, and they should be used in strict adherence to the identity guidelines in this manual.
It is greatly preferred that the full-color primary logos be used whenever possible. The full-color primary logos may be reproduced in solid colors or their process color equivalents. If the full-color versions are not possible, then it is preferred that the logos be reproduced in all black. The primary logos should never appear in any colors other than the university colors.
The banner in the primary logos offers the ability to add taglines for “Athletics,” “Owls,” or the names of specific sports (football, basketball, etc.). The taglines must appear in the Kennesaw State bold typeface.
KENNESAW STATE SECONDARY ATHLETICS LOGOS
The secondary athletics logos are complementary marks for representing Kennesaw State Athletics. The secondary logos are intended as decorative or retail product images for use in contexts in which the name of the university has already been established. They should never be used and the primary identifier of Kennesaw State Athletics. The secondary logos should be used in strict adherence to the visual identity guidelines in this manual.
The Kennesaw State logotype may be used to represent Kennesaw State Athletics when the primary marks are not practical (although use of the primary marks is preferred). This logotype should be used in strict adherence to the identity guidelines in this manual.
As with the primary and secondary logos, the banners offer the ability to add taglines for “Athletics,” “Owls,” or the names of specific sports (football, basketball, etc.). The taglines must appear in the Kennesaw State Bold typeface.
Kennesaw State’s visual identity includes two primary fonts that complement the logos. The first is Palatino, which is the typeface used for the university’s name in the seal and logo.
The other is Kennesaw State Bold, a custom font that matches the lettering in the athletics logos. Use of Kennesaw State bold may sometimes be used with the university logos. Each of these fonts should be used in order to create a consistent image for our university. These fonts must be used in the logo, and the department name under the logo. Other fonts may be used in the body copy. Any font that is clean and classic in design is compatible with the Kennesaw State image. Please address questions about appropriate fonts or font use to Office of Strategic Communications and Marketing at firstname.lastname@example.org or 470-578-6203.
