Vendors working with Amherst College are invited to contact Willa Jarnagin in the Office of Communications when working with the college’s visual identity or any design elements.

  • View a basic HTML version of our standard business template, which includes our color palette. 
  • Note that we usually don’t use the college seal in the banner; we prefer to use the college wordmark. Contact me for SVG or other vector files.
  • We don’t allow the navigation banner or footer of our main Amherst.edu site to be copied. Instead, we provide our simpler business template. Please contact me with any questions.

November 2017: Amherst will launch a new visual identity system this winter. We will have a new wordmark, seal, and fonts. Please check back, and contact me for the new guidelines and art files.
