Brand & Identity

In today's dynamic environment, Northwestern competes with academic institutions around the world. Integral to our strategy is presenting a consistent message, tone, and graphic approach in all of our communications -- our visual identity is a valuable asset. Brand and web guidelines exist to promote a shared approach to communicating visually who we are, and establishing a strong, distinctive identity. Effective brand management protects the integrity of our academic, research, and public engagement missions.

Northwestern Medicine

Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is part of the larger academic medical center brand known as Northwestern Medicine. Northwestern Medicine is the collaboration between Northwestern Memorial HealthCare and the Feinberg school around a strategic vision to transform the future of healthcare. It encompasses the research, teaching, and patient care activities of the academic medical center. Northwestern Medicine is Feinberg's main academic medical center brand.

The Feinberg brand and web guidelines coexist with the Northwestern Medicine guidelines, and there will be instances when Feinberg branding will best and most effectively represent Northwestern (cases relating to university, medical school or academic efforts where no clinical component is involved).
