The Monogram


The university monogram is the “shorthand” identifier for USC. As an acronym, it is often used to identify the University of Southern California in a variety of applications, such as printed materials, signage and merchandise. The monogram can be used as a stand-alone graphic element or in conjunction with the primary and academic unit wordmarks. The monogram has been typeset from a modified version of the official university typeface Adobe Caslon Pro. Do not alter or attempt to recreate these elements in any way. Always use approved artwork.
