The mark of the Methodist Theological University is the base element of the UI (or University Identity) which is the representative symbol of all forms of visual communication which reveals the university brand both inside and out. Developed to unify the brand image of this school, the symbol mark should create a sense of unity amongst the members of the university as well as be used according to school regulations since it serves to deliver and cause recognition of a consistent brand of MTU domestically and abroad. Regardless of the situation the symbol must always be reproduced in the same form and shape, and to prevent distortions the symbol should be expanded and/or reduced directly from the various computer data available in the CD-ROM.
