Stanford Sites also has a Minimally Branded subtheme. This is appropriate for individuals, student and staff groups, or organizations with a looser affiliation to Stanford. 

About the Minimally Branded subtheme

The Minimally Branded subtheme is the default look and feel for group and individual people sites. Sites with this subtheme have the same sitebuilding features as sites with the Stanford Basic theme, but with a simple, minimal design and no Stanford Brand Bar, Stanford Wordmark, or Stanford Global Footer.
