Design tips | Where identifiers meet content

  • If a design features the Block N only, spell out our name in the content.
  • If  a design features the College, Unit or Department identifier, our the name is already on the design. So, you don't have to repeat our name again in the text. Save the limited design space for your content.
  • If you use a branded Program identifier on a design, you don’t need to use a Unit, Department, College or University identifier too. Just mention us in the text somewhere. For example: Grow Your Own, Nevada! is a program of University of Nevada, Reno Extension.
  • You don’t have to put our name on one line on marketing materials. If it looks too crowded that way, go to two lines. For example: First line: Extension, Clark County. Second line: University of Nevada, Reno.
