Electronic Publications, the web development division of Creative Services, has launched a web page that serves as a resource for the new George Mason logo. The site, logo.gmu.edu, has information on the university’s new look, including downloadable high- and low-resolution images of the new logo and visual identity guides for publications and web sites. Users can also download templates for Microsoft Word documents, web sites, and PowerPoint presentations. A business card order form and a list of frequently asked questions are also available.

A workshop titled “Guidelines for Using the New Mason Logo” will be presented as part of BYTE Week on Aug. 24 and 25. The sessions were designed to introduce the new logo to web developers who are designing university sites. A second workshop titled “Dreamweaver Templates, Mason Templates, and You” will be presented on Aug. 26. This workshop will be an instructional session where participants on individual computers will have the opportunity to work with templates provided for download from the “Web Identity Guide.” An instructor will guide users through the development of a web site using the Dreamweaver application and the template folders available online.

Human Resources (HR) will sponsor a Let’s Talk workshop on the new logo Sept. 16 from 9 to 11:30 a.m. This workshop will give an overview of how to use the new logo on printed materials and review the services offered by Creative Services, the publications-producing division of University Relations.
