Vanderbilt University Medical Center

Vanderbilt University Medical Center follows Vanderbilt University graphics standards. Below is the official logo signature for the Medical Center. 

The “signature” is a single unit of identification, composed of the symbol V and wordmark. Various signature configurations are available to keep brand identity flexible.

Contact Marketing for official logos. Custom logos are not allowed under the Medical Center's graphic standards. Email design to request an official logo.

The oakleaf V symbol should never be used on its own without the wordmark.

Departments, Centers, Clinics

Departments, centers, clinics and programs do not have their own logos. They are encouraged to typeset their name in either Trebuchet or Whitney Semibold, title case wtih standard letterspacing. Trebuchet is available for free on most computer systems, Whitney must be purchased. When using the department name near the official logo signature, clear space guidelines should be followed and often it is not necessary to repeat the word Vanderbilt in the typeset department name. 

Note: Setting the department name near the wordmark does not make a logo and departments and clinics should not use it as such. These are meant for small areas where an official logo and the department name may have to appear together such as internal signage, chest area on uniforms, small products like mouse pads, etc. Otherwise it's assumed that on a report cover, flyer, etc, the department/clinic name would be more prominent on the piece, or as part of the text and would not get repeated with a smaller official VUMC logo that might appear on the bottom of a page, or back cover. 

In most cases it's not necessary to put the word Vanderbilt in the department or clinic name since Vanderbilt is already part of the official logo.

Here's an example using Trebuchet:

The Vanderbilt Health logo is used on materials that go out to the general public and that promote clinical services.
