BYU–Hawaii University Communications is implementing a form of advertising on campus by using two-sided sidewalk signs in high traffic areas to publicize events. Organizations wishing to use this form of advertising should send their designs to University Communications (UC) for approval. UC will arrange the display of the poster and the use of the frame.

  • Leave a .5 inch border around the poster and keep the design content inside of it to ensure that the entire design can be seen inside of the frame.
  • Use of the BYUH logo with the organization or department name (marks provided by UC), or at least the official organization name is mentioned in place of the logo (refer to the Writing Guide for these names).
