Brand and Style Guidelines

Brand Guidelines

Berklee’s clear, unified brand identity is communicated mainly through the logo, photography, fonts, imagery, and language we use to portray the college, both internally and externally. The brand guidelines convey the visual and verbal articulation of the Berklee brand, and offer specific directions for the application of all related elements, from logos to fonts to photography.

Style Guidelines

The style guidelines were written to help you with many of your day-to-day questions regarding grammar, spelling, style, and usage here at the college.

 We've tried to make this guide as user-friendly as possible, but occasionally the information you're looking for won't be found exactly where you first expect. For example, if you're wondering how to format movie titles, you'll find what you need to know under films. When in doubt, refer to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary or the Chicago Manual of Style. 

If you have any questions regarding this guide—or grammar, style, and usage in general—don't hesitate to contact the editors on the Communications staff.
