The Luskin School logos
Shown above are the official UCLA Luskin logos – a long and a short version. No other versions of the School logo should be created or used without authorization from the Communications Office.
Each department has its own long and short logo. No other versions of the Departmental logos should be created or used without authorization from the Communications Office.
In order to effectively communicate the UCLA Luskin brand, it is vital that all faculty, staff, students, departments and units use only approved versions of School and Departmental logos. Do not attempt to alter or recreate logo files.
If you need to resize a logo within your document, be sure to keep the image proportionally – it should not be stretched or squeezed in either dimension.
The following links are .JPG and .PNG files, and are appropriate for most desktop publishing, email and website use. If you need a different version of a file, if the image comes out grainy or if a file is not working for your purposes, please contact the Communications Office.
Official Stationery is available through a contract with Castle Press Printing.
