Merchandise Branding

In order to maintain the integrity of the Keck Medicine of USC brand, please follow Keck Medicine of USC graphic identity standards as it pertains to your individual department, service line or other organization.

When creating artwork for promotional items, please keep the following in mind:

  • Use only preferred vendors for production of promotional merchandise. A list can be found by following this link: http://trademarks.usc.edu/campus-community/promotional-licensees/
  • Custom wordmarks may not be created for your department, program or service line. Logo lock ups illustrated in this style guide may be created by the Marketing and Communications department upon request.
  • Official fonts and colors outlined in these graphic standards must be used on promotional items.
  • Do not place Keck Medicine of USC logotypes on top of, or attach them to, illustrations or artwork.
  • Do not separate “Keck” from the official wordmark of the medical enterprise “Keck Medicine of USC.”
  • Do not typeset “Keck” or “Keck Medicine of USC” in any font other than Adobe Caslon Pro or National.
  • Athletic marks, including the SC interlock, are restricted for use by the Athletic department only.
  • Band marks, including the band Trojan head, are restricted for use by the Trojan Marching Band only.
  • “Fight On” may not be used on medical enterprise promotional items or printed materials
  • Official vendors are expected to follow the rules in these graphic standards or risk losing preferred vendor status.
  • All proofs must be sent to Trademarks & Licensing for approval by vendors BEFORE production begins.
  • Before requesting artwork creation for a promotional item, please make note of the rules in these graphic standards to ensure your project is in compliance.
  • Artwork that does not conform to Keck Medicine of USC’s graphic standards will not be approved and will require redesign.
