Bienen School Lockup

In order to project a consistent message to our audiences, Northwestern University introduced new brand guidelines in 2015. One aspect of the brand is the Bienen School’s “lockup,” or logo, which you should begin using in any new materials being produced. We have two configurations – vertical and horizontal – depending on the specifics needs of your project. Use any of the following approved lockups, which are available for download in black or white with a transparent background: 

If you need the lockup in a different format, or if you have questions about how and where to use the lockup, please contact Katelyn.
