In the fall of 2016 the University of Georgia began implementation of a refreshed logo system for all units, departments, colleges and schools. The two-year re-branding process resulting in retiring the arch as the formal logo of the university, as well as a consolidation of the many individual logos that had been developed at the unit level. The new brand mark, including associated fonts, colors, and multiple logo configurations, has presented Franklin College of Arts and Sciences units with a variety of tools and guidelines, from stationary to business cards and presentation slides, to readily identify unit level activity with the University of Georgia.

- Only official logo files should be used, including but not limited to: printed publications (brochures, flyers, forms), websites, PowerPoint presentations, video productions, exhibit materials, posters, banners, etc.
