Our seal is the visual symbol of the university. It includes the word “Irvine” at the bottom and is only appropriate for the most formal applications and expressions of identity as a stand-alone graphic element. As the UCI seal loses its clarity and depth when printed, it should not be used on the web, nor should it be cropped in any applications.
The seals cannot be modified in any way. For additional information or guidance, send us an email.
For permission to use the traditional seal or UC seal, please contact Strategic Communications & Public Affairs by email or call 949-824-6922.

Mascot & Monogram
Peter The Anteater helps to foster school spirit and offers a way to express UCI’s culture and individuality. Variations have been developed over UCI’s history. While not acceptable as part of a campus wordmark, Anteaters can add interest to the design of a UCI’s communications piece. Downloadable Anteater graphics are available from UCI Student Affairs. To learn how the Anteater came to be UCI’s mascot, visit Peter’s page.
Our monogram is a rallying flag for athletic team support and school spirit. Its use is limited to those communications relating to our Athletics teams and departments. To obtain permission and artwork, please call 949-824-0160 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Bright Mark is a support graphic
that helps us to express our brand.
As an abstract mark, it has no single meaning, but instead supports many ideas around education – illuminating knowledge, a bright idea, a brilliant performance or a shining example. It’s mathematical in nature and connotes science, energy and beauty.
The 12-pointed version is used for smaller or quieter applications.
The 16-pointed version is used for larger or more dynamic applications.
Our Bright Mark may be applied at any scale and cropped in any manner that best supports your overall design and layout.
Here are some examples of incorrect usage of the Bright Mark.
