Developed in 2013, the Johns Hopkins University logo is rooted in tradition and serves as the primary signifier of the Johns Hopkins University brand identity. The logo’s iconography is based on the university’s official seal. This logo, or an official division or interdisciplinary logo, should be used on all communications materials.
It is essential that we do not dilute the prominence and recognition of the official Johns Hopkins University logos. None of the elements may be altered in any way, nor can individuals create their own logos or shields. Use only the digital artwork provided by University Communications on this website. Graphics cannot include or be framed in the shield shape from our logo architecture as not to introduce additional shields.
Our most recognizable logo is our standard Johns Hopkins University logo. When in doubt as to which logo to use on communications, our university logo can be used as it represents all corners of the University.
