UC Santa Barbara Visual Identity Resources
The university has created three different types of Microsoft Word letterhead templates, which are available for download from the University's Visual Identity Folder on Box. Google Docs users can access the same UC Santa Barbara template designs by choosing "New" > "Google Docs" > "From a template" in your Google Drive account. Customized versions of the UC Santa Barbara Microsoft Word templates with Department of Music contact information are available in the Department of Music's Visual Identity Folder on Box. Note: Per the university's guidance, please keep in mind that the University of California, Santa Barbara seal is typically reserved for official communications from the Chancellor’s office, legal documents, financial documents, awards, and other formal university communications.
Email Signature Generator
This tool prompts you to confirm and/or edit the contact information you would like to feature in your emails and simultaneously displays a branded and stylized signature that you can copy and paste into the appropriate settings of your email application. Set up instructions are provided for Gmail, Outlook, and Apple Mail. Access the Email Signature Generator with your UCSB Net ID and password.
Microsoft PowerPoint templates are available in a standard (4:3) print-friendly format, as well as a widescreen (16:9) format for screen-only presentations. The type is pre-set to Century Gothic, campus colors are built into the theme, and there are various slide layout options to choose from. Access those templates in the University's Visual Identity Folder on Box. Google Slides users can access the same template designs by choosing "New" > "Google Slides" > "From a template" in your Google Drive account.
Business Card Templates
Business cards are available via Gateway (please contact the Financial Analyst to place your order). When choosing your design in Gateway, please select either the Modern 1, 2, or 3 design template. Please note: the Department of Music does not provide business cards for faculty, staff, or students. If interested, you must purchase the cards using your own funds. Business card templates are also available via MOO, a leading provider of quality business stationery. Instructions on how to order business cards via MOO can be found in the University's Visual Identity Folder on Box.
