Site Logo Requirements

The theme requires a SVG file for the site logo. This allows the theme to use the same graphic for both the desktop and mobile layouts. By default, the theme uses the Liberal Arts and Sciences logo.

To use a customized logo for your site, contact CLAS Communications. The SVG must have certain attributes in order for the theme to control the background and font color. Logos should also follow the university brand guidelines.

For more about the SVG format, see the theme documentation.
