SCEC Brand Identity / Logos

Need help? For all

questions, email 

scecinfo@usc.edu.

Welcome to the home of SCEC's brand identity. Logos, powerpoint templates, poster templates, letterhead, and a variety of other miscellaneous art products are available to help you promote your SCEC research as easily as possible. 

What You Can and Can't Do

  • You can use any of this content for promoting your SCEC-funded research or activities. All other needs should be discussed with SCEC Information (scecinfo@usc.edu).
  • You can resize any of the art products as desired; however, please note that only EPS or AI (Adobe Illustrator) files can be stretched without quality loss (aka "vector"). Any .PNG or .JPG files are "raster" and will lose quality if you try to stretch them. 
  • You cannot intentionally alter the aspect ratios, colors, or shapes of any art products and be mindful of what they look like before you apply them to any document or website. We are always happy to review and/or customize graphics with SCEC artwork as needed for you.

About the SCEC Logo

Over the years, the SCEC logo has slightly evolved. From a bird's eye view, the current logo illustrates a right-lateral strike-slip fault, akin to many faults within the San Andreas system (and elsewhere). No matter which side you are on, the vector arrows indicate that the side opposite of you is moving to the right.

We also adopted the USC Branding Identity's guidelines for color with the SCEC logo, with the principal logo color choice being cardinal red. This decision marks our appreciation to USC for the years of hosting SCEC's research collaboration, with many more years to come.
