PLEASE NOTE: A new style guide and revised Penn shield were released on Dec. 17, 2019. Please familiarize yourself with the guidelines and abide by the usage rules and scenarios outlined therein.

While the revisions to the Penn shield are minor and are largely invisible to the casual viewer, the shield should be replaced in your logos as you redevelop branding materials.

The Simplified Shield


The Penn Simplified Shield was developed for use when rendering the Penn Shield in a size small enough to cause the details of the dolphin and open volumes to become indistinguishable. Examples of such instances include social media avatars, favicons, and custom emoji. Use of this shield is recommended when the height will be smaller than 60 pixels.

Please contact us at for permission to use this shield and its intended placement on the web.
