CSE Logo



The CSE logo is an award-winning design that was created for us back in 1997 by Michael Connors at the now-defunct Spangler Associates, a design firm that also created a rather too-glitzy-for-who-it-was-for site design that was never deployed.

In 2004, a second version of the logo that includes the text "University of Washington" and "Computer Science & Engineering" wrapping the logo was created locally.

Examples of the 1997 and 2004 logos are at right.

In 2009, a designer donated the 88-pixel square "badge" version of the logo that includes the text and the then-new "W" UW logo in the lower right corner; that's the image at the upper right corner of this page.

In 2011, University of Washington Creative Communications created versions with new colors, this as part of an overall web redesign effort. These are the current best versions to use for new content.

Examples of the 2011 logos are at left.

On this page, the webmaster has provided links to various Illustrator and bitmap files. Feel free to use these files, create your own from the Illustrator source, or, as a last resort, contact webmaster to ask for a custom version. We'll keep adding to what's on this page.

Miscellaneous

Also, 303x303 monochrome UW Seal, JPEG format, and EPS UW Seal. Somewhat anacronistic, now that UW has a new family of logos.
