Managing Department Branding and Logo Lockup Options

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

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

If desired, site owners can also replace the default Stanford lock-up logo with a custom logo.

    Selecting a signature lockup option

    Most of the lockup options follow a pattern similar to what is shown in the image below.
