Logo for videos

University of Nottingham - logo

Our logo is more than a graphic device. It’s our history and values instilled in a symbol that’s recognised globally. We need to make sure we use it properly.

The logo should be displayed at the beginning or at the end of every video, depending on the platform the video is used for. Social videos used on Twitter and Facebook for example, tend to be short and need to open with a bang. Therefore it is not always necessary to use a logo on the video clip. 


More information

Different background types

The University logo will work on the majority of backgrounds. However please use the blue colour gradient, black or white background if needed. A white out version of the logo is available, but this should only be used if all the other options have been exhausted.

Use the logo at 50 x 142px in size


Unstandardised videos

The logo can be used in a centralised position in different shaped videos. Videos are often tailored to fit various platforms, and therefore a certain amount of adaptation is needed for each one.

Logo animation sequence

The logo animation sequence can be used on two different types of background. Due to it's length it is recommended that the animation is used at the end of videos, or at the beginning of longer videos such as lecturers and corporate messages.

Third party logo

If a third party logo needs to be included in a video, it should be placed beneath the University logo in order to maintain hierarchy. 

If more than three logos need to be displayed, please fade out the orginal logos and replace with a new set of logos. Please always keep the logo displayed as below:
