Brand Standards

The East Carolina University logo; unit logos; the university seal; the East Carolina Alumni Association mark; the Pirate Club mark; and the athletics spirit marks are the only marks approved for use by the university community. No other marks or logos may be used to represent the university and its programs without receiving prior written approval from the director of creative services or the assistant athletics director for licensing, respectively. Use of the university seal is limited.

Logo Review

Recognized University Departments and Registered Student Organizations who wish to use the ECU marks on apparel (such as t-shirts, hats, and golf shirts) and gift/promotional items (such as key chains, mugs, and jewelry) must use licensed vendors and submit designs for approval prior to production.
