Our goal as we represent Minnesota State Mankato in print and online is Communicating with Pride. These brand standards will help you do exactly that. They’re designed to help the University community understand and embrace the brand as they communicate about Minnesota State Mankato.
To help bring clarity to the requirements for compliance with brand standards, we have developed "The Bare Minimum" guidelines.
Brand standards on publications and photographs for University printed materials—including required statements.
Brand standards for electronic communications—including websites, apps, social media, video and electronic ads.
This website is the official documentation of the University's graphic standards. It is not a tedious manual, but a short, streamlined set of standards that focuses on the key elements of how to project the Minnesota State Mankato brand.
University Creative Production is the preferred source for University printed materials. If you choose to work with an outside printer on a project, you must complete and submit the off-campus printing and merchandise approval form to receive approval.
The University's Creative Production office is the preferred source for branded merchandise, apparel and employee work shirts. If you choose to work with a licensed outside vendor to produce any of these products, you must complete and submit an off-campus merchandise request to receive approval.
