Preferred Version

The primary and preferred visual mark for the university is the “Rockin’ R” logo that shows the full university name spelled out int two lines. Both lines align visually along the left side. The top line, “The University of Texas,” is smaller than the second line, “Rio Grande Valley.” Use it on all official publications and as the first identifier of the university. The preferred version is in two colors, with the top line in UTRGV Orange and the second line in UTRGV Gray. All versions of the university logo must include the trademark symbol.

Initials

The secondary preferred version of the “Rockin’ R” presents just the initials in a single block, with a color break between UT and RGV. Use this in situations where the university’s identity is well-established, for example, as the closing mark on a publication whose cover bears the full mark. It might also be chosen for campus banners, internal communications, or any use where the full name has already been established.

Rockin R Initials-4C

Special Case Version: Horizontal - short

This logo version of the “Rockin’ R” may be used in very horizontal applications, such as a banner or an imprint on a pen. Note that “The University of Texas” has been condensed to the initials, so care should be taken to use this version only in settings where “UT” will be read as “The University of Texas.”

Rockin R Horz-4C

Special Case Version: Horizontal - long

This logo version of the "Rockin' R" may be used in horizontal applications where the UT might not be read as The University of Texas or for more formal applications.

Special Case Version: Stacked

This alternative, more vertical “Rockin’ R” logo may be used where available space is not wide enough for the preferred version to be legible, or the imprint space is more square than rectangular (e.g., the door panel on a subcompact car).
