Web Branding Bars
Web branding bars must appear on every page of official IU and IU campus subsites. This directive applies to subsites of the IU gateway and of each IU campus. A website is considered a subsite if it is a school, program, department, or unit affiliated with a specific campus or the university as a whole. Personal web pages are excluded.
All branding bars must extend across the top of the web page with no added white space or additional colors, and the name of the university or campus should function as a link to the home page of the university or campus. (For example, if you are using the Indiana University Bloomington branding bar, the block IU and the words "Indiana University Bloomington" should link to the IU Bloomington home page at www.iub.edu.) No other graphics, text, or features can be added to the branding bar without approval from IU Communications.
Graphics and source code for these branding bars can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. A white version of the Indiana University branding bars can be used, and is included with the downloads.
This footer is to be positioned at the bottom of a website and must appear on every page of an official IU site. The footer can be placed on any background color, and there is a version available in the download for sites with dark backgrounds. The block IU should always appear in either crimson or white. Please refer to the instructions contained in the download for more information. Download the graphics and source code below.
In browsers that support favicons, or "favorites icons," the favicon graphic can potentially be displayed in three separate areas: in a browser’s address bar, next to bookmarked items, and before the page’s title in a tabbed document interface. The IU favicon should automatically appear on all pages hosted on Veritas, IU’s central server. If your unit uses a server other than Veritas, download the favicon file (favicon.ico) below and place it in the root level of your server. In addition, the favicon is embedded in the downloadable branding bars and footers below.
In order to maintain a unified brand image for the university, all IU units are encouraged to use this favicon.
The web branding bars and footers are packaged together in a ZIP file. Use the links below to download these materials for your specific campus.
Note: IUPUI units should choose the banner that corresponds to their signature.
