The new logo should incorporate both the full name of the center (i.e., "Center for the Management of Information Systems") divided across 2 or 3 lines and the center acronym (i.e., "CMIS"). In addition, the logo needs a graphic that represents who we are and ties the logo together. See attachments for examples of how we will use the acronym logo by itself and with the full center name (both horizontal and vertical).
Some key words that could be communicated with the graphic: global, connectivity, information technology, networking, business, fast pace, change, information systems, etc.
We like the idea that faculty, students, and industry are working together implied by the University of Arizona (http://mis.eller.arizona.edu/partnering) (see attached ArizonaIntegrationExample.jpg). Entries that represent the collaboration among students, faculty, and industry will (in general) receive higher ratings.
For color and other related information, see the Texas A&M University brand guide (http://brandguide.tamu.edu). At a minimum, "Aggie Maroon" must be included in the overall color scheme.
We require the following files:
- unlocked vector file
- layered .psd file (background of all layers should be transparent) (RGB)
- unlocked .ai file (CMYK)
Please do not use stock images or clipart in the logo.
