The Block N logo is our official academic brand. It is a collegiate serif “N,” always contained in a perfect square. There are two versions, a positive version for white backgrounds and a reversed version for non-white backgrounds. Below are the versions available in png and vector file formats. PNG formats are ideal for use in such programs such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and other common software programs. PNG formats are also commonly used for web projects requiring the logo to be placed on another color field. Vector formats (EPS) are Adobe Illustrator format and are infinitely scalable, giving you maximum flexibility. Large-scale posters, banners, swag items such as t-shirts, mugs and other giveaways need vector logos. In grayscale applications, blue turns to black.
Logo choices for white or light backgrounds
In most design applications, the logo is added on a white or lighter background.
Reverse logos for dark backgrounds
For non-white backgrounds, always include the thin white stroke around the box. The Block N may may stand alone in situations where the viewer understands it represents the University of Nevada, Reno.
