The logos for the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine are symbols of the institution as well as a bridge to the rest of the University.
These designs follow guidelines established by the University of Nevada, Reno's Office of Integrated Marketing. They are consistent in the use of the block N, color and typography.

The horizontal logo is the preferred, primary logo for the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine. This logo should be used whenever space permits. It includes the full name of the school and the logotype typeset to the right of the block N graphic. Though the full-color (CMYK) version is always preferred, the grayscale, black, reversed, PMS or alternate color options are acceptable in situations where there are printing constraints or legibility issues. A full logo package is available with all approved color options.
The fonts used in the logo are Myriad Pro (for "University of Nevada, Reno") and Minion Pro (for "School of Medicine").
Please do not make, alter or use any other symbols as a replacement for University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine logos. The primary and secondary logos are designed to be consistent in the logotype's relative size, positioning and color treatment and are governed by rules created to maintain the brand's consistent identity. You must reproduce the logo from the electronic originals. When resizing the logo, take care to stretch or shrink from the corners so as to keep the design in exact proportion.
The stacked, or vertical version of the logo should only be used when available space limits use of the preferred version. Though the full-color (CMYK) version is always preferred, the grayscale, black, reversed, PMS or alternate color options are acceptable in situations in which there are printing constraints and legibility issues.
Clear space is the area surrounding the logo that is free of all other elements. The logo should always maintain the minimum space of 'X' around it, where 'X' = the height of the M in "Medicine."
The lines illustrate the minimum spacing around the logo when used in any piece of communication.
The logo, no matter the orientation, must always be displayed at a size large enough to read the type.
For instance, though this will vary based on the medium in which it is being used, the horizontal logo should be no smaller than 0.5 inches or 90 pixels in height.
