UNH has hired a company, OrcaTV, to facilitate operation of the digital signs on campus under the  name UNH TV. (Digital signage was previously referred to as Kiosks at UNH Manchester. )

The digital signage is free to use for any UNH affiliated group and is easy to submit. Just go to the UNH TV portal to submit content in the form of pictures or videos, and OrcaTV will format it for you.

UNH TV offers myriad of options for departments and organizations on campus to use for advertising. While Powerpoint is usually the go-to for creating posters, other tools such as Powtoons can make advertisements much more eye-catching.

Visual Identity

About the Logo

The UNH logo and wordmark can be configured in a variety of ways to meet your design specifics. Please consider the background color that will appear behind the logo, and remember to provide sufficient breathing room! If you have any questions, review the clear space requirements within the UNH visual identity guidelines. Should you have any questions about placement, configuration or context, contact cpa@unh.edu.

Licensing/Logo Usage

The logo is trademarked and usage on merchandise needs to be approved by the University. Contact graphic designer, Laura Piazza, if you would like to order merchandise or giveaways with the logo. She will set up the artwork according to the vendor specifications for any product you wish to order. You can view the list of UNH licensed vendors here.

UNH Manchester Logo files for Download

Download print files (.eps) for printed materials and electronic files (.png) for files to be used on the web or other electronic format.

NOTE: EPS files are rasterized graphics meaning the artwork can be reduced or enlarged without losing any quality, even if you're enlarging it infinitely. This is always the best file for print. You will likely not have the proper software to open the file, however it can successfully be placed into any file, including word documents. For a visual clarification, download the following screenshot.

The University Seal

The University seal commemorates three landmark years in our history. At the bottom of the seal, the year 1866 marks our founding as New Hampshire College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in Hanover. The year 1893 marks the college’s move to Benjamin Thompson’s farm in Durham. Finally, the year 1923 commemorates the transformation of the college into the University of New Hampshire.

Proper use of the seal
The seal is for use on diplomas and other designated official University documents. As with the logo and wordmark, the University seal may not be altered in any way. The University seal may only be used with prior approval from the associate vice president for University Communications and Marketing.


Marketing & Communications Support

The links below are where you will now submit your graphic design, web edit and news story requests. There are fewer fields to complete, and your larger project requests will now be handled by a project manager. The project manager will follow up with you in order to get all information needed ahead of time before the project is assigned to a member of the Creative Team. This will give you peace of mind that your project is being handled as efficiently as possible.

  • Smaller project requests (quick website copy changes, changes to a brochure, etc.) will be managed directly by a member of the Creative Team.
  • Larger project requests (need a landing page, creation of a new brochure, etc.) will be managed by Dana Pierce. We will work with you to make sure all information is gathered prior to assigning to a member of the Creative Team. This may include scheduling a meeting with you to discuss in more detail.

 

Event Support

All enrollment-focused event support requests will run through the Marketing & Communications department.  Please note that we do not manage internal or student-focused events. Those should be managed by Event Champions in each department.

  • When faculty, students or other departments on campus want to host an event that is not fully supported by our office, they become the Event Champion. The event champion owns the event while it is on campus. The event champion coordinates the on campus departments, is the point of contact, presents the event plan at the weekly meetings, contributes their events to a calendar and makes sure the impact of the event is not outside the scope of impact on the students or for the university. The event planner handles the fine details and logistics of the event. The event planning process ensures that policies are followed and that the departments on campus who will be impacted are alerted.
  • Julie Demers oversees the vetting process of events and aligns with the strategic mission of UNH Manchester. The event vetting process ensures that specific qualities are met, that correct departments on campus are alerted and that the overall calendar/schedule is maintained. Julie will be responsible for the logistics and coordination of outward facing internal events that impact enrolment/retention or offer experiential learning opportunities for students. Including: Program-focused forums and most public events marketed by the University.
