This University College Style Guide is meant to officialize and instruct in the use of all the University College identifying marketing graphics.
“Online, Affordable, and in Your Community.”
(basically, our 30-second “elevator speech”)
University College Outreach Centers are dynamic hubs of higher education in Maine communities where students are supported to network, collaborate and learn together. People of all ages come together, both face-to-face and through innovative web applications, to participate in programs from the University of Maine System and from other institutions. This rich community resource supports both students and employers, serving as a vital engine of regional economic growth.

The Official UC Logo
The official University College logo uses the State of Maine globe with an off-set thin ruled orbit. The globe uses a Pantone 287 blue gradient. The graphic ‘bug’ is never used by itself and is always accompanied by the 2 line wordmark.
There are many different variations of the basic logo. The end use (print, web, product, etc.) determines which variation. Output of these logos are mostly in the .psd, .tif, .eps format for print use and .jpg, .png, format for web use.
There are two major styles of the official University College logo, Adobe Garamond Pro typeface (serif) the other Frutiger typeface (sans serif) each using the gradient bug and the flat bug.
GARAMOND (serif) LOGOS
The text is set with Adobe Garamond Pro bold type. The UMS byline is set in Adobe Garamond Pro semibold italic.
Variations of the Garamond Logo:
FRUTIGER (sans serif) LOGOS
