New SAREP logos are in the communications toolkit
Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program has a new logo. To download the SAREP logo or any UC ANR logo, visit the UC ANR Communications Toolkit at https://ucanr.edu/sites/communicationstoolkit.
In the toolkit, you will find SAREP's new logo with and without text, in English and Spanish:
Brand consistency is important
UC ANR logos visually communicate our brands, and our brand promotion efforts seek to positively influence people's perceptions and awareness of UC ANR's value throughout the state. We do this by presenting consistent, credible and authentic messages and visuals about how we benefit California. Consistency is key to building awareness and understanding, because communicating a fragmented or overly complicated brand confuses audiences and makes it hard for them to understand both what we do and the value we bring. Simply stated, that means every type of communication we craft – presentations, web pages, publications, social media posts, etc. – is an opportunity to grow brand awareness and positive sentiment for UC ANR.
To that end, please be sure you are using the current version of the UC ANR logo and/or sub-brand logos on your materials – presentations, email signatures, flyers, posters, social media profiles, etc. We recognize that physical signage is costly to update, but if you are creating new signage or replacing old signage, please be sure to use the proper logos. For specific branding or logo questions, contact Linda Forbes.

Zoom backgrounds with ANR and UCCE logos available
When ANR employees attend meetings via Zoom, now they can use blue backgrounds that feature the UC ANR or UC Cooperative Extension logos. The images serve to remind your associates who you represent as well as mask distracting objects around you. The professional images were designed by Will Suckow, senior artist in Communication Services.
The files can be downloaded from the Communications Toolkit in the ANR portal. To download the UC ANR Zoom background, click on UC ANR under Logos and Templates Downloads.
To download the UCCE file, click on UCCE under Logo & Templates Downloads.
In Zoom's video settings, it is important to make sure the camera is set to 16:9 so the video format will fit the background.
Should you be using a new UC ANR logo? Probably not
Brand Toolkit contains close to 1,000 assets—everything from logos to business cards to PowerPoint templates. Updating those assets is a daunting task and a challenging brand management issue.
This multi-level brand approach is not unprecedented. A good example is how UC Berkeley handles their brand package. There's a high-level brand for the campus and other sub-brands, like the script Cal and iterations of the Golden Bear. Each has a place in the brand family. This is especially applicable for well-recognized, even well-loved brands with a lot of brand equity—like the script Cal, the vintage bear, or even 4-H, UCCE, Master Gardener and others in our own brand package.
Brand Toolkit. Future changes to the sub-brand packages will be minimal and won't be incorporated into the sub-brand packages for at least 8 to 12 months.
