Branding Guidelines and Identity Resources

The resources listed below are meant to support faculty and staff members of the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Oct 2014: University Relations has released new Branding Guidelines to help unify the UCSF master brand.
The HDFCCC identity system is based on Identity Standards developed by UCSF University Relations and we encourage you to familiarize yourself with these guidelines.
The standards must be supplied to graphic designers who are contracted for print or web creative services, and they are available to any faculty/staff who want background on institutional identity.
