Identity System Graphic 
To strengthen IPFW's branding efforts, University Relations and Communications (URC) is launching a new identity methodology referred to as the IPFW Identity System. This new identity system offers a university-wide framework full of standards and best practices to help clearly convey key messages through copy, visual design, photography, and artwork. Applying the new identity system will take place throughout this academic year. To assist in your day-to-day marketing efforts, URC has launched a microsite----identity.ipfw.edu----that includes university guidelines, standards, and downloadable assets. Additional information will be included over time, so URC encourages you to bookmark identity.ipfw.edu, check back regularly, and speak with your marketing specialist for additional information.

To learn more, watch the introductory video.

Please contact Lea Ann Powers, creative director, at powersl@ipfw.edu or 481-6163 to ask specific questions.
