The signatures on the left are the preferred primary element of the Southern Illinois University visual identity system and must appear on all official external communications. There are two versions of the SIU logomark. The logo may not be modified in any way. It is available to all users in multiple formats. Contact University Communications and Marketing at 453-2518.

SIU Carbondale signature should be placed on the front of all print materials. If placement on the front is not possible, the logo can be placed on the back cover; however, the front cover must be clearly and prominently marked with text that reads SIU Carbondale or Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

The decision about which layout to use should be based on the space available (horizontal or vertical), except in Web applications, where the web approved logo is preferred.

what you need to know


Use these versions of the signature for all external applications: official university documents, brochure covers, ads, and large campus signage (entrance).



To maintain consistency across the university in internal as well as external email communications, we are recommending a format for the signoff signature.  OIT has built a generator for email signatures for users to apply in Outlook.
