Our logos have been developed intentionally to provide consistency and to facilitate the development of high-quality branded materials. Logos are a major component of the brand, and when used properly, they build and elicit widespread recognition and convey the authentic identity of our college and its schools. The logo designs are not to be modified in any way.
For use of logos in merchandise, please contact the Office of Marketing and Communications at email@example.com to obtain versions approved specifically for those applications.
Arial and Times New Roman are our system fonts to be used for general purposes like correspondence and presentations. The LL Brown font is reserved for logos and collateral produced by the office of marketing and communications. If you wish to request use of LL Brown, please contact the Office of Marketing and Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Branded templates for PowerPoint presentations, letterhead and envelopes as well as email signatures can be found here.
Letterhead templates are available to college faculty and staff only and may be downloaded from the college intranet site.
Your email signature is your digital business card, and it represents the college and our brand. Our purpose is not to constrain creativity, but rather to establish a shared basis for professionalism, consistency, and compatibility across a wide range of email systems and applications. For these reasons, we provide these templates and guidelines.
Create two separate signatures: new and reply/forward
In addition to your regular new-messages signature, consider creating a separate one for replies/forwards, condensed to contain only your name and contact information. This avoids excessive accumulation of repetitive information in long threads, but ensures recipients can still derive basic contact information. This is supported by most email clients, but not all. The Outlook desktop client does, for instance, while the web client does not.
If you are a Dyson/Johnson/Hotel or other Cornell alum
Feel free to indicate your alum status with your name, following college/school standards for degree and class year (’00), with either a straight (') or curly (’) apostrophe. An apostrophe and single quote are not the same thing; a curly apostrophe looks like a closing single quote (’), not an opening one (‘) as is often incorrectly done.
No images/clip art, including custom stationery/backgrounds. They don't always render properly and sometimes come through as attachments.

Boilerplate for Press Releases
The School of Hotel Administration at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business is shaping the global knowledge base for hospitality management through leadership in education, research, and industry advancement. Accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the school provides management instruction in the full range of hospitality disciplines, educating the next generation of leaders in the world's largest industry.

It is standard practice to introduce the school by full name upon first mention and use informal variants for subsequent mentions within that same context.
The School of Hotel Administration is known informally as the Hotel School, Hotel, or (less preferred but still approved) SHA. The word "The" is stylized as part of "The Hotel School" in the logo, but it should not be capitalized in running text except where grammatically necessary. Example: "...graduated from the Hotel School."
