UNBC Logos and Graphic Standards

Graphic Standards play an important role in creating and maintaining a strong brand and a recognizable identity for UNBC. They are meant to maintain a standard of quality across all UNBC materials.

The UNBC Graphics Standards Manual is official UNBC policy and therefore must be adhered to whenever and wherever a UNBC logo is used. 


Official UNBC Logo​

This is the preferred version for all applications and must be used for those that reach audiences external to UNBC, especially beyond northern BC.


Northern Timberwolves Logo​

This logo is the property of the UNBC Athletics Department and is only to be used to identify UNBC varsity teams.


UNBC Alumni Associati​on Logo

Contact the UNBC Alumni Association alumni@unbc.ca for access and permission to use the UNBC Alumni Association logos.


UNBC Colours​

UNBC Green and UNBC Gold are the official UNBC colours. White, black, or 100% Green may be used for the UNBC Logo and Wordmark, but any other colour including Gold or any tint of Green is not permitted, unless approved by the Office of Communications.

Use of tints (percentages) of official UNBC colours in design elements (other than the UNBC logos) is permitted.

UNBC Fonts​​

Helvetica Neue is the official font for use in UNBC materials, and comes in several variations. If you do not have Helvetica Neue or the funds to purchase it, use Arial as an alternative.


Coat of Arms Usage Policy

All official UNBC heraldic symbols (Coat of Arms, Shield/Crest, Flag, Badge) may be used only on legal and/or ceremonial documents, such as student transcripts and parchments.

They are never to be used for promotional or advertising purposes, or as a substitute for the official UNBC logo. Due to the strict usage policy on the official UNBC heraldic symbols, you must first consult with the Office of Communications if you wish to access the downloadable files.
