What kind of support do you need?

Below are a few options for various kinds of support you may need.

Visual brand identity

We are happy to advise members of the Stanford community as well as external entities working on behalf of Stanford on the topic of visual brand identity.

Name use

Please contact our Brand Manager with requests to use Stanford’s name, photographs of the university, or any of its seals, logos, or symbols in advertisements or marketing materials, press releases, videos, commercials, movies or television programs.

Merchandise, products, and trademark use

Please contact Trademark Licensing for information about licensing Stanford’s trademarks, obtaining artwork with proper trademark designations, permissions to print Stanford trademarks on products or clothing, and other use of Stanford’s name and emblems by commercial entities.
