UMBC Shield

The UMBC shield can be used as a graphic element, but should not be used in a way that adds elements to the shield, distorts it in any way, and/or changes the colors. Below is an example of the shield as a graphic element.

For this design – it should be noted that while the shield is used as a graphic element (with the right side being cropped), the primary logo is also used unaltered. Designers should strive to include at least one UMBC logo in their work on materials and promotional items for the university.
