The University Seal

Pepperdine University Seal

The Pepperdine University seal is a limited-use mark intended only for formal, University-wide projects. It should not be used for promotions or advertising. Because of its restricted use, please contact Keith Lungwitz, creative director, at 1440 if you have any questions.

Examples include:

  • diplomas
  • proclamations
  • awards
  • certificates
  • medallions
  • official documents (such as catalogs)
  • hallmark banners
  • communications from the president's office

Use with other marks

The Pepperdine seal should not be used along side the Pepperdine wordmark or any other logo.

The seal can be used in the same space as the wordmark as long as there is adequate distance between the wordmark and seal (ex: certificates or awards).

The seal can also be used as a screened background image behind the wordmark (ex: hallmark banners, slideshow decks, and public safety vehicles).

None of the University's branding assets, especially the wordmarks and seal, should ever be used in situations that create competition among multiple logos.


The Pepperdine seal is designed as a monochromatic emblem. It may appear in black or Pantone 281 blue. It should never be rendered in Pepperdine orange or any other color. Reversing the seal, as to appear white on a dark background is acceptable.
