The informal seal has been specifically created for use with the Rutgers logotype when an additional graphic element is desired for visual interest. It is also an alternative way to provide the full name of the university. The logotype and seal cannot be resized, rotated, or altered in any way.
The informal seal may be used with the Rutgers logotype alone—this is the preferred use of the informal seal—or it may be used with the universitywide signature or with any of the three regional campus signatures. The informal seals are available at the Download Zone. They may not be altered in any way.
Note: Using the informal seal as a web graphic diminishes its resolution and makes the details of the seal appear fuzzy. Therefore it is not recommended that you use a signature with the informal seal as a web graphic. The best way to use the informal seal on the web is as a background element or watermark in a web banner.
The official university seal has very limited use, primarily on official university documents, such as contracts, deeds, and academic diplomas.
It can be used, with authorization, as a design element on certain ceremonial communications, such as formal invitations. All such uses require prior approval from the Office of the Vice President for University Relations.
The official university seal is a stand-alone mark of the university and may not be combined with the Rutgers logotype.
