In March 2016 the University changed its visual personality and a simplified logo replaced the previous blue penant version on all printed and digital materials.
The University relies on the logo as the single graphic element which when used correctly establishes a consistent visual identity for Heriot-Watt.
There are two important elements to the University logo – the shield-of-arms and the name, which must both be used together. It is also essential that a consistent use of colour and positioning is maintained throughout all areas of logo application.
The logo must always be reproduced from electronic files supplied by Media Services firstname.lastname@example.org and not from photocopied or preprinted material, or be redrawn in any way.
