An important part of Georgia State's visual identity program is the university athletic logos including the mascot, Pounce. The athletic logos are designed to promote Athletics and school spirit.
A number of athletic logos are available for use in publications, signs, displays and other marketing materials that support school spirit. These images are distributed through the Division of University Relations and the Department of Athletics for nonprofit use and through the Collegiate Licensing Co. for distribution for profit.
Like the university logo, the athletic logos may not be manipulated or changed in any way and should always be reproduced from official artwork in official colors in the manner described in this guide. All athletic logos are copyrighted.
Pounce is a copyrighted image and should always appear in his official colors — PMS 286 blue and white, or PMS 286 blue, black and white. The red in Athletic logos is PMS 186. To ensure uniform color reproduction, Pounce colors may not be screened. For further guidance, contact the Division of University Relations. See more information on Color Usage here.
When is it appropriate for a group other than Athletics to use the panther logo?
Answering "yes" to the following questions COULD mean that you will be able to use the panther logo. Logo use must be approved by University Relations and Athletics before being produced. Please make sure to leave plenty of time for approval in the production process.
- Will the item be used to promote the university as a whole, not just an individual group, department or program?
- Does the logo stand alone (not grouped with other elements such as type, graphics or unit names)?
- Will the item be distributed for free?
- Have you received permission from University Relations and Athletics to use the logo?
