Penn State Themes

Themes using the official Penn State Mark are only available for official University business, such as departmental pages, research groups, and other work representative of the Penn State community.

There are currently two themes available that adhere to the Penn State Identity Standards:
Divi for PSU
Genesis for PSU
Twenty Twelve for PSU

New Penn State Mark

The Department of University Marketing is responsible for overseeing the University’s graphic identity system, maintaining visual standards, and approving use of any representative mark or symbol. If you want to implement the mark using another theme, you must do so according to the Penn State Visual Identity Standards. Each theme has its own options for uploading a logo image. However, due to the very specific guidelines for implementing the new shield, you must also be prepared to follow guidelines regarding sizing, margin and alignment specifications, fonts, as well as in the mobile responsive stylesheets.
