Introduction
Like people, no two universities are exactly alike. Each has a tradition and characteristics
that make it unique. Each has a different story to tell and different ways in which to tell
it. Xavier’s story reaches back almost 500 years, to the founding of the Jesuit order of the
Catholic Church and to a mission of service to others that’s as relevant today as it’s ever
been.The richness of this story can be told through the support of the resources in this
guide.

What We Stand For
We believe it’s our responsibility to make a difference in the world
Most schools define success rather narrowly, by facts, figures and finances.We measure
excellence through a wider lens. As a Jesuit, Catholic university, we’re called to a higher
standard—to make a lasting, positive impact on the lives of those around us.The Xavier
story is about being part of something larger than one’s self. It’s about an institutional
commitment and culture to serve others and contribute to the greater good. Excellence
through impact.That’s the Power of X.

C O R E B R A N D VA L U E
2.1
What Sets Us Apart
We carry on one of the world’s great educational traditions
Innovative from its inception almost 500 years ago, and still revolutionary today, the Jesuit
tradition calls for the education of the whole person, the importance of critical thinking,
a commitment to social justice, and adherence to the highest standards of scholarship and
ethics. As one of 28 Jesuit colleges and universities nationwide, Xavier offers an intensive academic experience rooted in a broad core curriculum and bolstered by a range of
specialized programs.The power of this approach has been affirmed again and again by
U.S. News & World Report, which has ranked Xavier among the top 10 universities in the
Midwest for 15 consecutive years.
Our learning environment is truly student-centric
In an age of increasingly impersonal education, Xavier stands firm in its commitment
to inspire, challenge and guide each and every student.We believe “demanding” and
“supportive” are two sides of the same coin.We deliver on that promise with a degree of
individual attention that large public universities cannot match, academic programs that
consistently earn high national rankings, a graduation rate that’s No.1 in the Midwest, and
some of the nation’s best rates for job and graduate school placements.
OUR MESSAGE

KEY MESSAGES
2.2
Our values, beliefs and passions run deep
We are defined by and firmly rooted in our Catholic beliefs, yet we are a spiritually diverse
campus.There are at least 15 different faith backgrounds among the student body, which
serves as evidence of the welcoming environment and common ground we work every
day to foster. In an age defined by lack of civility and “whatever” attitudes, Xavier is a place
where students can discover that mutual respect is possible, that dialogue makes a difference, and that the desire to make the world a more just place knows no bounds.
The Xavier advantage is inextricably tied to our hometown
We strengthen and are strengthened by Cincinnati, enjoying a vibrant and rewarding
relationship with the economic, civic and social infrastructures of the nation’s 24th-largest
metropolis. Our students benefit from a rich array of experiences and resources
throughout the region, including a job market featuring hundreds of Fortune 500 companies and an alumni network populated by more than 30,000 graduates.

THE IDENTITY S Y S TE M
X AV IER UNIV ER S ITY GRAPHIC IDENTITY G UIDE
The Xavier University logomark was designed to
reflect the equity and distinctiveness of Xavier’s athletic X while incorporating the University’s historic
Jesuit mission and academic pedigree..
•The shield reflects tradition, academic excellence,
prestige and power.
• The cross and fleur-de-lis, a symbol with rich,
religious history dating back to the Middle Ages,
reflect our spiritual heritage and mission of service
to others.
Primary logomark
The logomark has been designed to function as part
of a flexible and cohesive visual system. The only
acceptable Xavier University logomarks* (shield
symbols) are pictured on this page.They may not be
reconstructed or altered in any way. They must be
reproduced from high-resolution digital files.
Guidelines for its use are provided in this guide. For
questions regarding its use, contact the Office of
Marketing and Printing Services: [email protected],
513 745-3431.
3-dimensional logomark
When using the logomark symbol by itself, the
Xavier University name must appear elsewhere on
the page.
3-D logomark
A special 3-D version of the logomark was created
for use in digital media and on promotional materials
where there is a need to place it over photography
or over a background with texture. A subtle drop
shadow should be added to the 3-D logomark as
shown here. The direction of the drop shadow can
be changed.The drop shadow should be rendered in
black and it should overprint the background.
* There is also a Xavier University Athletic logomark that is
acceptable to use within the constraints of it’s guidlines. Please
contact

LOGOMARK
3.1
The logomark (the shield symbol) combined with
the wordmark (the uniquely typeset college name)
are referred to as a signature.Various signature configurations allow the designer maximum flexibility.
Different signature configurations use different size
relationships between the logomark and the wordmark. Signatures may never be recreated or redrawn.
Always use the approved electronic files, available
through the Office of Marketing and Printing
­Services: [email protected], 513 745-3431.The logo

As much as possible, the Xavier University signatures
should be used with schools, centers, institutes and
colleges.The preferred identification of departments
is by incorporating their names in address blocks (see
page 6.1) and headlines.
Horizontal Signature 1
Signatures for individual schools, centers, institute s
and colleges within Xavier University are built on
the primary signature using a template.The Williams College of Business signatures are shown here
as an example.When producing signatures for other
entities using the template, make sure to retain established size relationships and component spacing.The
font used for the school, center, institute and college
is Bembo, set in all caps and screened 50 percent.
The school, center, institute and college signatures
exist in both horizontal and vertical configurations.

The visual extension of the Xavier graphic identity
was created to imbue Xavier communications with
a strong, proprietary visual presence, and to support
the primary graphic identity elements—the Xavier
logomark and wordmark—in presenting a unified and
consistent look to internal and external audiences.
The graphic expression of the visual extension was
derived from the concept of two beams of light crossing to roughly form an X shape. It signifies “coming
together” or a crossing point.The expanding nature
of the shapes implies collaboration leading to growth.
The strong presence of a “light” aspect in the visual
extension refers to spirituality and the Jesuit tradition
(stained glass).
The shapes of crossing light beams divide the visual
plane into four large areas and five smaller ones, to
create the visual extension base (Figure A). These
component shapes are filled with single-color tonal
blends derived from the Xavier color palette.To
facilitate creativity and flexibility, a number of
customizing options are allowed (Figures B–F).
When customizing the visual extension base, adhere
to the following rules:
1. Use only colors from the Xavier color palette. 2.Use only one color to create a tonal blend, but vary its density and “speed” of transition as necessary.
3. When applying a transparency effect to shapes, be mindful of undesirable color combinations the underlying image may create.
4.Avoid “tunnel” or “peak” effects—make the
direction of the blends in component shapes random. Do not direct all blends toward or away
from the crossing point.
5. Do not redraw or distort the visual extension
base image.
6.Do not rotate the visual extension image to
approximate a cross shape (+). Even the rotated
image should strongly imply its “X” origins.

The Xavier University seal has historical signifcance
and is rooted in the Jesuit tradition.The seal symbolically represents the University’s origin, values and
spiritual foundation.The seal is used for official correspondence and documents and is primarily used
by the office of the president. Permission to use
the University seal must be obtained from the
office of marketing and printing services.
At the center of the seal is a shield divided in half
vertically. On the left, from the Xavier family coat of
arms, is a pattern of vertical stripes.
On the right side, a black-robed arm holding a
crucifix extends, symbolizing St. Francis Xavier, a
founding member of the Jesuit order. Below, three
seashells symbolize St. Francis Xavier’s three journeys
to the Far East.
Surrounding the shield are inscriptions describing
the University’s heritage: above is the Jesuit seal, IHS,
the first three letters of the Greek word for Jesus;
below, the Jesuit motto, AMDG (Ad Majorem Dei
Gloriam: in English, “To the Greater Glory of God”).
On the ribbon beneath the shield is the motto,Vidit
Mirabilia Magna (“He has seen great wonders”). In
its full context, the motto affirms that the person
who has “inquired into righteousness has awakened
to her admirable grandeur.”The outer rim of the seal
bears the Latin inscription:

The primary Xavier University color palette is made
up of colors integral to the core of the ­identity.
The standard Xavier University signatures include
­Pantone® 648 blue, and Pantone® 877 metallic
silver or Pantone® 429 gray. The metallic silver is
preferred and should be used instead of the gray in
all print communications. Pantone® 639 bright blue
is a complementary color that does not appear in
the signature, but was selected as complementary primary color to be used in advertising and in any other
marketing communications where color is used to
strengthen the Xavier brand.

Secondary Color Palette
An expanded palette of additional complementary
colors exists to enliven Xavier communications
and to facilitate creativity. It adds versatility to the

the palette are intended as a starting point and ensure
cohesiveness across applications. Additional colors
may be introduced as needed but should complement the Xavier University palette.

Two types of e-mail design examples are shown here.
The formal e-mail design uses the 1-color identity
extension pattern in the masthead.The masthead also
carries the Xavier signature and an “eyebrow” head.
A lightly-colored background should be used under
the html text below the masthead.The graphic and
typographic elements should not crowd each other.
The overall design should look elegant and prestig­
ious.The html text elements should be primarily set
in serif font.
The promotional e-mail design uses a 2- or 3-color
identity extension pattern in the masthead. A 3-D
Xavier logomark with drop shadow may be used
in the masthead.The html text elements below the
masthead should be primarily set in sans-serif font.

A standardized banner system allows consistent
branding across university PowerPoint presentations.
The opening page master slide uses Xavier blue
identity extension pattern as the background image.
This same pattern could be utilized for sectionbreaker slides without photographic images.
The basic page master slide page uses the 2-color
identity extension pattern with the primary color
of Xavier blue, and an accent color taken from the
Xavier complementary color palette. Each presentation could be customized by using a different accent
color. As shown here, the primary content area of
the master slide may carry a subtle 1-color version
of the pattern, or it could be white.
The basic page master slide could also be used to
­create breaker pages with photographic images.
In this case, the photographic image should fill the
entire primary content area.

Frame 1
On the Xavier blue background, two beams of light begin
to grow from the bottom of the frame.
A simple concept of animated video presentation
reinforces the Xavier core values of Integrity,
Connection and Spiritual Growth. It also reinforces
the Xavier primary identity elements by utilizing
the Xavier signature, Xavier primary colors and
Xavier tagline.
At the end of the animation sequence, the Xavier
signature and the tagline appear. Connecting is used
in this example, but can be changed to better express
the video content. Other word choices include
­spiritual, inspiring, enduring or growing.

The Xavier signature must appear somewhere in
the top banner on all Xavier web pages. The most
practical for tight horizontal spaces is the horizontal
signature. The clear space requirements set on page
3.4 do not apply.

The 3-D version of the Xavier logomark can be used
in the footer.
Note that a special version of the Xavier logomark was ­created to use in a very small size in web
­applications. Do not use this version of the logomark
in print applications.
On the home page, Xavier blue is the dominant
color and Pantone 639 is the secondary color.
Various methods of incorporating the visual extension pattern on the web site are shown here.They
include running it in the top banner, the footer, in
the overall background, or referencing it in the shape
of the buttons. In addition, the color blends throughout the site in various other graphic elements.

When placing the Xavier signature on the front
cover of the publications, the preferred placement is
in the upper left or lower right. An optional placement is in the vertical center of the page near the
left or right edge.The final placement ultimately
depends on the cropping and rotation of the visual
extension pattern. But make sure the Xavier signature is placed on the quadrant of the pattern that
carries the most weight.When placing the Xavier
signature in context of other elements (including the
quadrants of the background pattern) and the edges
of the publication, adhere to clear space requirements
as defined on page 3.4. As a general rule: the Xavier
signature should be placed in close proximity to at
least one of the edges of the publication. It should
not appear to be floating.

When placing the Xavier signature on the publication’s front cover where the photo image is present,
the placement of the signature should follow the
unique dynamic between the photo image and the
visual extension pattern.This means the signature
could be placed in any corner of the cover.
A special placement is also allowed for the 3-D
­display signature with a drop shadow. Such a signature may be placed in the crossing point of the visual
extension pattern. Make sure the entire signature is
highly legible, especially if it is spanning both graphic
and photographic components.

When integrating photography with the ­visual
extension pattern, at least one of the pattern’s
large components should be a solid color (not a
­color blend).
When using a transparency effect in the visual pattern components, make sure the underlying portion
of the photo image does not create colors that are
not used in the Xavier color palette. In addition,
make sure that all components of the visual extension pattern are clearly discernible.
