Download templates and communication tools

Lund University’s graphic profile is to be used on material, printed and digital, produced on behalf of the University. A consistently used profile helps us to communicate who we are and what our brand stands for. Various templates and tools are gathered on this page to facilitate your work. You will also find the logotype and other graphic elements available for downloading.

All the templates and communication tools have been designed according to the instructions and rules in the University’s graphics manual. Using these tools saves time and contributes to reinforcing Lund University’s brand by giving an impression of unity.

The templates in 4:3 format are for older projectors or computer screens, with a more square format. These can still be used on more modern wide screens, but there will be a black edge/blank space on both sides of your presentation, as it does not fill the entire screen. The templates in the 16:9 format correspond to the current standard for wide screens and projectors (as well as TVs). Before a presentation, you should find out what type of screen or projector you will be using.
If you are going to hold an oral presentation about Lund University, you can base it on the PowerPoint presentation with general information about the University:

Letter templates in Word 

Letter templates in Word are available in Swedish and English. They use the fonts Times New Roman and Arial instead of our profile fonts, to avoid technical problems. When you send an open Word document, the fonts do not follow – if the correct font is not installed on the recipient’s computer, it is automatically replaced by something else. This is why you should use the alternative fonts Times New Roman and Arial, which are standard on all operating systems, when you are working with open documents in Word and PowerPoint. Use our profile fonts Frutiger and Adobe Garamond Pro when working with printed originals and PDFs for example.

For print-outs on pre-printed writing paper there are Word templates with both Times New Roman/Arial and with the profile fonts Frutiger/Adobe Garamond Pro which can be used where possible. You can find them at the bottom of the list below. Remember to fill in all the name and address details before you start using the letter templates.

Templates for Indesign

All the layout templates for the Indesign program (grid templates) are available for download in the Image Bank. Click the direct link below and log in with your Lucat ID to get through to the relevant template. Instructions and examples of how to structure your layout are included in the download of the templates.

What is a grid template?

When referring to layout templates, we often use the term grid template. Our layout templates for the InDesign program are structured according to various types of grids, i.e. various types of ruler guides/grids. Depending on the type of production that you are making, the ruler grids can be constructed somewhat differently. For instance, there is one for a portrait A4 brochure, another for roll­ups, etc.

Support for quick and simple production

The grid template system helps make the graphic production more quick and simple, and facilitates your work in combining logotypes, headings, texts, images and graphic elements in a coherent and well-balanced layout. In all templates the logotype is placed correctly and the seal has the right proportions. The grid is to be seen as a support tool when structuring your content, but will not be visible in the final printed version of your product. Instructions and examples on how to construct your layout will be provided when downloading the templates.

A formats

The grid templates are all based on A formats, which are part of the University’s graphic profile. Working with a layout not based on an A format makes it more difficult to ensure that the graphic form becomes coherent and correct. There are also financial and environmental reasons for, as far as possible, avoiding e.g. square formats. Remember to use the proportions of the A format if you are creating material in a format for which there is no grid template. Please contact the Branding Office at Corporate Communication if you have any questions.
