The visual identity system was developed through a sponsored project with the department of graphic design. That means SJSU Marketing and Communications paid a practicum class (Associate Professor Chang Kim and a group of BFA students) and those funds went directly back into the program, supporting the very students who did the work. The real-life experience these students got from the project is invaluable.
In addition, building a strong university identity will benefit the entire community by elevating SJSU's image -- and encouraging support and engagement from our many audiences.
You'll notice that SJSU's primary mark and tagline now appear on SJSU's homepage. We're developing the web elements that you'll need to update your template kit. Join the Marketing Updates group now to receive the latest information.
