Academic Lockups

When the logo needs to represent departments and units, the academic lockup should be visually consistent with the rule and academic entity.

Logo Clear Space

Maintaining ample clear space around the logo ensures that it remains legible and doesn't get lost within the composition. Photos, text, and graphic elements should never be placed within the pictured clear space.

The clear space of the logo is always the height and width of the "L" in the logo.

fonts/Typefaces

Our words carry weight, and so does our typography. The size, font, and style of the typeface we choose is one of the most recognizable aspects of the Lasell College brand. It can reinforce our bold and inspirational voice, or back up a smart and insightful idea.

Picking the appropriate typeface is just the beginning. Setting the proper hierarchy and combining font weights both play a significant role in making sure our type speaks loud and clear.
