Manage Branding and Logo Options

Main content start

Stanford Sites comes with a number of options to support appropriate branding and logo placement.

A site’s signature lockup is a combination of the Stanford wordmark with an individual school, official department, administrative unit, institute, center, or lab name. This signature lockup will appear in the top left corner of the site's main header and footer. The lockup for the main header and footer are configured separately to allow for more customization.

The default lockup contains the Stanford wordmark and your site name, all on one line:

If desired, site owners can replace the default Stanford lockup logo with a custom logo.
