The Miami Herbert Business School logo is available below to download for use on official materials for the School.

A cohesive and consistently applied graphic identity is an important tool that helps reinforce the School’s message and presence and thereby serves to advance the School and University. To maximize the benefits of a visual identity system, the logo must be used in a consistent fashion.

The University Visual Identity Manual provides specific guidelines and standards for the system in all forms of University communication. Adherence to these guidelines is vital for the University to be represented in a uniform and consistent fashion.  The University's Visual Identity Guide can be found here. Miami Herbert has its own Visual Identity Guide, which can be downloaded here.

Logos are available for download in color, grayscale and black and white in two formats – EPS and JPG. Some logo file formats may require specific graphic software (such as Adobe PhotoShop or Illustrator) to open or view files. Most vendors or graphics professionals should be familiar with these standard formats, as well as which file best suits a specific usage.

  • JPEG is a standard cross-platform (Mac or PC) format that can be used for a variety of applications. Please note that the JPEG files cannot be significantly enlarged beyond the original signature size contained within the original files.    
  • EPS files are a standard format for graphics professionals and those more familiar with publishing. This format allows for quality usage at any size enlargement.
