Preferred Full Color Logo
The full-color, CMYK, or RGB logos are preferred. Use CMYK for any print use such as collateral or business papers. Use RGB for digital use such as Powerpoint presentations, web or broadcast/video. See color specifications.
White Knockout Logo
The white knockout logo is a versatile logo that can be used in both print and digital applications. It is best used on color of adequate contrast or photographic backgrounds where the preferred full-color logo will not work.
One-color logos are available in UVA blue and black. They can be used in places where the full-color logo might not work, such as on an orange background or with more limited printing or application techniques, such as embroidery, screen printing, grayscale or one- color printing.
Whenever possible, the UVA blue one-color logo should be used. Use the black one-color logo only when the navy would be illegible.
Incorrect Logo Usage
Our logo is one of our most important assets and should be protected. As such, it should not be altered under any circumstances. The logo should be treated as artwork: Always use the original logo files and do not attempt to recreate it yourself using text. Here are some examples of things to avoid when using our logo:
Use correct approved logo artwork
Use common sense
Use logo images obtained from non-approved sources such as the Internet
Make your own logo files
Manipulate our logo files
Do not add a drop shadow or other effect to our logo.
Do not use any colors other than UVA Orange and UVA Blue.
Do not manipulate our approved color formats.

Squeeze our logo into tight spaces
In Print, the logo must be no less than 1.875" wide. For digital use, no less than 180px wide.

UVA Health Entities
A logo lockup is when the organizational logo is combined together with an offering to create a new signature. Logo lockups are limited and may only be created with the approval of the Office of Strategic Marketing and Communication.
Approved offerings, such as entities, medical centers and specialty hospitals, may be “locked up” with the organizational brand. All other offerings are not approved for a logo lockup, unless a special exception has been made.
Using the height of “U” in the UVA Health logo equal to x, the size of the lockup text is equal to half that height or 0.5x. The distance between the UVA Health logo and the lockup text should be a distance of 0.5x.
The vertical space between lines of type is called leading. Please note that when locking up two or more lines of text with our logo, the font size must equal the leading size (e.g., 40 pt=40 pt). Default leading is often set to 120% of font size, so always double-check.
Approved Logo Lockups
Logo lockups have been approved for these offerings and may be used to represent them. All others must use the UVA Health logo, unless exceptions have been approved. See the previous page for exceptions approved for signage only.
UVA Health Children's
UVA Health Children's Logo
UVA Health Children’s encompasses our pediatric offerings and programs. The signature, special marks, color palette and typography use a modified version of our visual identity for a look and feel that is appropriate for children and families, while still aligned with UVA Health as a whole.
These are the UVA Health Children’s preferred logos. The logos should be used in the preferred color format whenever possible to represent UVA Health Children’s.
Preferred Color Logo
The full-color CMYK or RGB logos are preferred. Use CMYK for any print use such as collateral or business papers. Use RGB for digital use such as PowerPoint presentations, web or broadcast/video. See color specifications.
White Knockout Logo
The white knockout logo is a versatile logo that can be used in both print and digital applications. It is best used on a primary or secondary UVA Health Children’s color or photographic backgrounds where the preferred full-color logo will not work.
White Logo On Blue
UVA Health team members may use the split-V logo for promotional items like t-shirts, fleeces and other wearable items. The UVA Health logo must also be present on the item whenever the Split V is used.
- Ex: UVA Health logo on front of shirt, split V on back.
The two-color format is preferred when using the split V logo. The V should appear in UVA Orange and the name in UVA Blue. One-color split Vs are available in certain scenarios and will be determined by UVA Licensing.
For optimal effect and reproduction quality, we recommend placing no more than 12 characters within the split V. If the name exceeds this limit, a two-line split V with 12 or fewer characters on each line will be used.
