ASU sunburst logo
The sunburst logo was introduced in 1995, replacing all pre-existing ASU logos. The logo is made up of a sun icon that is incorporated into the three letter forms (A, S and U) and provides a strong and recognizable graphic image of ASU’s mission and purpose. ASU student organizations are not allowed to use the sunburst logo.
The university seal is used by ASU units only in very specific situations: formal and official documents such as diplomas, legal and official records, transcripts, programs for formal academic ceremonies and legal agreements binding the university. No modifications should be made to the seal (including color modifications and file types). No likeness of the seal should be created.
Sparky may be used on all applications by Sun Devil Athletics and registered student organizations. Sparky should not be used for communications of an academic nature, including research proposals, curricular materials or annual reports. He should never be modified, dressed or embellished. No likeness of his body or head may be created. ASU student organizations wishing to use Sparky on communications or material must first contact the EOSS marketing team.
The pitchfork is reserved for Sun Devil Athletics. Any exceptions to this rule must be granted in writing by the Sun Devil Brand Council. The Sun Devil Brand Council can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maroon and gold, black and white are ASU's primary colors.
Over many years, ASU has built brand equity in maroon and gold. These two colors define who we are as an educational institution.
