A new corporate identity
The University of Amsterdam (UvA) has updated its corporate identity with the
aim of creating a clear and uniform design scheme for use in UvA communications
The updated corporate identity came into effect on 1 January 2011.
The two most significant changes in the new corporate identity are:
- the use of a single UvA logo (no other logos will be used in addition to or instead of the UvA logo);
- UvA documents are printed on white paper: ‘Signature white’.
The new corporate identity gives all recognised organisational units a suitable place where they can display their name as the sender. There are also a number of other corporate identity elements that organisational units can use to incorporate their identity into the design. This website outlines the new corporate identity and provides aids such as printing files and templates, as well as a number of sample documents created using the new corporate identity.
English language communication
The official language of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is Dutch. However,
the UvA provides students, staff and the general public with basic information
in English – primarily online – regarding institutional policy, teaching and
research, legal rights and obligations and employment matters.
To support its English language communication, the UvA employs a translation coordinator and two editors for the English language UvA website at the central Communications Office. This team has also developed a range of useful tools including:
