UGent huisstijl: voorbeeldenLogo and corporate design

The corporate design is our visual identity: logo, colours, font and imagery are used in all publications and presentations, such as websites, printed materials and signage, etc.
A recognisable, uniform appearance strengthens our message and unites us as a university. It makes everyone familiar with our organisation. It makes us stand out.

Image film

The film 'Ghent University yesterday, today and tomorrow' tells you all about Ghent University in a few minutes.

There are two versions: one short, one long. The short ‘image film' (02:00 min.) focuses mainly on the ambiance, emotion and experience: ideal for e.g. exhibitions. The longer 'corporate version' (05:39 min.) is ideal for presentation at e.g. congresses, symposia and on websites.

Each version is available in Dutch or English in 1920 pixels (high quality for projection on large or wide screens). These films are copyright protected 'Ghent University', you are not permitted to manipulate or reuse the footage without approval via .

PowerPoint presentation 'This is Ghent University'PowerPoint presentation

The corporate presentation ‘This is Ghent University' presents Ghent University in a concise manner and features up-to-date figures on education, research and internationalisation.

It is used by our employees to present Ghent University at congresses and conferences, meetings with potential partners, etc. Notes under each slide provide more detailed information.

Install the font 'UGent Panno Text' in the weights 'Normal' and 'SemiLight'. On computers of Ghent University employees, this is installed automatically. Can't (have) the font installed? Then present via the pdf (full screen mode via key combination Ctrl + L).

Durf DenkenImage campaigns 'Dare to Think'

'Dare to Think' (in Dutch: 'Durf Denken’) has been Ghent University’s motto for many years. Critical and independent brains study, do research and work at Ghent University.
#durfdenken is in our DNA and what we expect of everyone. It is thanks to ‘durfdenkers’ - those that dare to think - challenging dominant opinions and strong beliefs that the world progresses and that we learned that the earth was not flat and also not in the centre of the universe.
