Communications

Welcome to the UF College of Medicine Brand Center!

Our brand is what faculty, staff, students, alumni, peer institutions and industry professionals all think, feel and respond to when they hear the University of Florida College of Medicine mentioned. This webpage provides various resources for faculty, staff and students to support the college’s brand identity.

Through the links below, you’ll find templates, tips and resources to help faculty, staff and students affiliated with the UF College of Medicine create professional and effective communications. Do you need to make a flyer, presentation or event invitation? Looking for a logo or stock photos? Want to update your website? You’ve come to the right place. Need help “getting the word out” about an initiative, event or program? We can help you determine the most effective way to do that.

Logos

Unless you have an approved secondary logo for your department, division or unit (you may inquire via a form on the UF brand website), please use the official UF College of Medicine logo. Do not alter this logo in any way, such as distorting the dimensions, cropping, changing the colors or adding/deleting text.

To download the logos, right click on the thumbnail and select “Save Image As.” This logo is an image file and may not reproduce clearly at larger scale in some print materials, however, the logo is already embedded in some of the various materials and templates provided on this page. If you would like an EPS version of the logo for print purposes, please contact the communications team.

Social media

Maintaining a social media channel requires planning, enough resources to devote to frequent updates (a few times a week, minimum), and formal approval from UF Health Communications to become an official account. Launching a channel may not be worthwhile if you are trying to reach a small segment.

A few College of Medicine social media accounts target broader public audiences. Be sure to follow these accounts and share content as you wish.
