Marketing Tools

The work we do at Oregon State University is vital. Our approach — confident but humble — and the impact of our leadership, teaching, innovation and service are far-reaching and profound. Our brand captures this and provides a platform for expressing it through a distinctive narrative, a consistent voice and a unified visual vocabulary.

The new Oregon State University brand identity and logo were introduced on April 24, 2017.

University Outreach and Engagement and OSU Extension Service will leverage the work that has been done for the OSU master brand. We are working with Ologie, the agency that helped define the new OSU master brand, and expect the OSU Extension sub-brand to roll out in August/September 2017.
