UNR Med Brand Toolkit:

The UNR Med Brand Toolkit is Now Live

Advancement and Engagement is pleased to announce a new resource for you to put the UNR Med brand to work in a consistent and effective way—the UNR Med Brand Toolkit!

From email signatures and electronic letterhead to logos and PowerPoint templates, the Brand Toolkit is your one-stop-shop for the resources and easy-to-use branding "how-to" guides you need to complete your next project.

With the launch of the new Brand Toolkit, it's now easier to find what you need to implement a project on your own, while ensuring it adheres to UNR Med brand guidelines.

If you're looking for A+E assistance with a custom branded project or upcoming event, the Brand Toolkit can help there as well! Simple forms are available to walk through submitting an electronic request.

The Brand Toolkit includes:

  • Email signature building tool
  • Memo, agenda and meeting minute templates
  • PowerPoint, poster and syllabus templates
  • School of Medicine logos
  • Departmental sub-logos
  • Vintage illustrations and accent icons
  • Primary and extended color palettes
  • Primary fonts and other options
  • Electronic letterhead and printed letterhead instructions
  • PLUS custom project and event request forms
  • And much more!
