Pre-approved mobile app templates for iOS and Android

App icon

Android – round

The app icon should display Stanfordโ€™s block “S” with tree emblem centered above the appโ€™s name. The content below the emblem should reflect the content and character of the app. The block “S” with tree emblem must remain visible and its permutations beyond those outlined here are not permitted. Additional options, including more branded color options, are actively being designed and will be included here as they become finalized.

The launch screen displays Stanfordโ€™s wordmark in white font on a Cardinal Red background, centered both vertically and horizontally.
