Signature Archive

Need an existing unit, school or college signature? Visit the signature archive, managed by Repro Graphics.

School and College Signatures are Standard Unit Signatures with an optional graphic symbol attached. There are eight schools and colleges currently using graphic symbols. 

The graphics have a formal, unified aesthetic and are designed to appear as a set.

All unit signatures for schools and colleges are based on set templates. All icons,  fonts, colors, size and spatial relationships are uniform and cannot be altered.

Do's and don'ts


  • These signatures may include one or two organizational levels below the UC Davis wordmark. 
  • Contact Repro Graphics about having a signature created.


  • Ampersands (&) shall NOT be used in School and College Signatures.
  • Unit names shall NOT begin with the word “The." For example, "College of Letters and Science" should be used instead of "The College of Letters and Science."
  • Use the graphic symbol in a signature for a sub-unit unless the school or college name appears on the first line beneath the UC Davis Wordmark.


As with all Standard Unit Signatures, the following hierarchies are acceptable with and without reference to umbrella or sub-units:

Examples of School and College Unit Signature hierarchy

Note that only the options with the school's name, "Veterinary Medicine," in the second position include the school's graphic icon. The Center for Equine Health could have a stand-alone identity as shown, or would have to adopt a Center and Institute Signature. It would never use the Veterinary Medicine graphic symbol without "Veterinary Medicine" appearing beneath the UC Davis Wordmark.
