The Trinity logo is made up of two elements:

1. the icon, an illustrated rendering of Murchison Tower
2. the nameplate, reading “Trinity University.”

The tower is contained within a double-banded oval, open at the bottom to reflect the great height of the tower and its landmark status over the Trinity campus and the San Antonio community. The icon and nameplate reinforce the semi-classical and strong lines of the University campus architecture.

In the majority of uses, the Trinity logo should be used as a whole; the icon and nameplate should not be separated. The icon should never be used as an individual element, and cannot be used with any words, letters, or typeface other than the official nameplate. The icon cannot be used as a substitution for a letter or number (for example, replacing the “0” with the icon in the year “2019”). The icon cannot be removed from its ovals, or graphically edited in any other way, including adding or subtracting elements from the icon.

If the logo cannot be used as a whole, it is acceptable to use the nameplate only. In this instance, the nameplate may be used in the rectangular or horizontal format. The nameplate is a custom-constructed product and shall not be reconstructed or recreated from scratch.

The Trinity logo should not be used on the same document or in the same design as the Trinity spirit logo.

Taglines

Taglines are optional, and help complete the Trinity signature.

  • The tagline “San Antonio • 1869” may be added to the rectangle and horizontal logo formats.
  • The tagline “San Antonio • 1869 • www.trinity.edu” may be added to the rectangle and side-by-side logo formats.
  • The tagline “Discover. Grow. Become.” should be used by the Office of Marketing & Communications only, and can be used as a tagline below the logo or as a design element.

Colors

The Trinity University logo is always rendered in colors from .Trinity's official color palette

  • The 2-color logo is always rendered with a gray icon and maroon nameplate.
  • 1-color logos may be rendered in maroon, gray, black, or white.
  • Black logos should always be rendered in 1-color black, not rich black.
  • Grey or black logos must always be rendered on a light background.
  • White logos must always be rendered on a dark background, preferably maroon (in a color document) or gray.

Available Downloads

The logo is available for download in eps, jpg, and png formats. Make sure to download the file type best suited for your specific project.

  • EPS: An EPS is a vector file that opens in Photoshop or Illustrator; use this file to send to t-shirt vendors, swag/accessory companies, and large sign companies, or for any other large-format or vector uses.
  • JPG: Use JPGs for high resolution print documents.
  • PNG: Use PNGs for the website or for digital files. PNGs have a transparent background, so the background over which the .png file is placed will show through. A white font will show up on a dark background in this format.
