Branding

The Innevation Center has a unique identifier that you must include on your promotional materials. It looks like this:

The Innevation Center University of Nevada, Reno

This identifier is a hybrid design consisting of the words “innevation center” in Switch’s modified Century Gothic typeface followed by the words “University of Nevada, Reno” in the University’s official typeface, Myriad Pro.

The Innevation Center mark should be used on every promotional piece, along with the Powered By Switch tag. See the brand guidelines (PDF download above) for details. If you need the logo and the Powered By Switch tag in separate files, contact Alex Vanderhoff.
