Indiana CTSI Communications and Marketing Resources

Indiana CTSI logo

Indiana CTSI logoAt the Indiana CTSI, we use our tricolor honeycomb logo as the signature element of our visual identity. The tricolor design represents the collaborative work of Indiana University, Purdue University and University of Notre Dame researchers and staff as part of our institute.

Indiana CTSI units and programs must use this logo in all of their communications and marketing efforts, which should be shared with the central communications team for final approval.

Download the logo

The preferred method of using the Indiana CTSI logo is the tricolor, vertical version pictured above. A more horizontal tricolor version is also available.

The logo should appear on a white background with the correct white space (see above) surrounding it.

Use the Font

The Indiana CTSI uses Calibri as our primary font to remain unified and cohesive. Calibri is a standard Microsoft font and should be readily available on your devices.

Use the color palette

The Indiana CTSI’s core colors are IU crimson, Purdue gold and Notre Dame blue to reflect our affiliation with each university. CMYK, RGB, and hex color values are meant for different mediums, so please choose the appropriate value for your piece.

Update your email signature

All Indiana CTSI employees should have cohesive email signatures. We ask that you follow the format of the example below:

Email signature sample

Your email signature should use the Calibri font, with your name in 12pt font and the rest of your signature in 10pt font. You should bold your name and title. You can download, copy and paste the example from the Word document at the link below and enter your information.

Visual Project Request

If you would like to request support for a visual project design (brochures, fliers, posters, etc.), please fill out the form below. A member from the communications team will be in contact with you within 24 hours upon receipt of the request form.

Graphic design project completion timelines vary depending on project, but we generally like to aim for a two week deliverable time. After the initial 24 hour response from our team and once the project is started, you should expect an update from the designer at least once per week via email. You can expect a draft within one week of providing all content (text, photos, etc) to the designer. Each project will be allotted one round of edits. You are given 48 hours to reply with your edits before the project due date is delayed. Specific timeline dates will be provided upon inquiry.

Is this a new project or a revision of a previous project?
