Stationery

Business cards, letterhead, and envelopes are all widely used communication tools that can help strengthen the visual identity of the university when used properly. All of these components provide the opportunity to convey a positive message each time they are used. Consistent use of these identity standards demonstrates that each college, school, department, or other unit respects and values its affiliation with the university.

NOTE: Information should include” height=”870″University of Arkansas at Little Rock” with the address, a phone contact, and the UA Little Rock URL. Departments may include their college on the line next to the University name, separated by an interpoint. Do not use more than three lines.

University badges

The university’s preference is that faculty and staff use a name badge for his or her name along with his or her affiliation within the greater campus community (either by department or college or both, if room allows). See the example below.
Example of UA Little Rock name badge design.
Note: There is a two-line limit for affiliation information, with a 40 character limit per line to maintain readability. Use full names for college, office and department names: no abbreviations or acronyms.

The badge is meant to be a snapshot, not a curriculum vitae, business card, letterhead or email signature. Squeezing too much information into a relatively small space creates an outcome that is aesthetically unappealing.

There may be occasions when the use of a title makes sense. We wouldn’t have Andrew Rogerson, Office of the Chancellor, for example. We’d just have Andrew Rogerson, Chancellor.

These requests can be handled on a case-by-case basis as long as it conforms to the template given, but as a general rule a person would have to sacrifice listing his or her affiliation (college/department) and use title instead due to space constraints.
