Visual Identity & Brand Guidelines

We’ve put together these resources for official university departments and recognized student organizations.

These guidelines cover everything from the proper use of the institutional logo to selecting an appropriate photo image from our new digital asset management library to social media tips to help you represent the FGCU identity correctly and integrate The FGCU Effect brand into your materials.
