Once imported into your document, avoid stretching or squishing graphic elements (exception: mosaic elements). In some programs, this can be done by dragging on the corners of the graphic to resize it. In other programs, you may need to hold "shift" or "control" while dragging the corners to maintain original proportions.
The community mosaic and student mosaic can be stretched and rotated to best fit your design.
Avoid enlarging all elements, except by small increments. This could result in pixelization or blurry elements. If your design requires larger elements, contact the Office of Marketing.
The crest edge and center notch container elements are designed to add type on top if desired (e.g., dates, times, location). Avoid putting type or overlapping other graphic elements over the other design elements.
