Reproducing the university logo

The Messiah University logo is comprised of a customized icon and wordmark. As such, the University requires that the image files provided by the Office of Marketing and Communications be used to create all forms of communication where the logo is used. Any attempt to recreate the icon, type, spacing or styling of the logo by desktop publishing or word processing is not permitted because it will result in inconsistencies that will compromise the integrity of the logo.

Messiah University branding

At Messiah, your life, your faith, your world and your possibilities open up. You see anew. That transformational brand promise remains true for students at Messiah University. But we have a fresh new look to our logo, our see anew tag line, our stained glass metaphor, our ligatures—and all of the other distinctives you see in Messiah’s communications.
