On this website you will find templates and tools to help you create your materials in the design of the Rhineland-Palatinate University of Technology Kaiserslautern-Landau.
The brand manual contains the basic content (e.g. the RPTU mission statement and the name) and the design concept (e.g. fonts, colors and color combinations and design elements) on which the following templates are based. The brand manual currently contains the first five chapters and will be supplemented in the coming weeks with additional chapters and descriptions of the individual templates.
In the Basic Regulations (as well as in the Brand Manual) you will find the name of the university as well as its short names and the abbreviation as follows:
- Name: "Rheinland-Pfälzische Technische Universität Kaiserslautern-Landau"
- English name: "University of Kaiserslautern-Landau"
- Short name: "RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau"
- Abbreviation: "Rhineland-Palatinate Technical University"
- Abbbreviation: "RPTU"
When using the short name (RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau) or the abbreviation (RPTU), please ensure that it is clear from the general context that RPTU is a university. Otherwise, please use the full name or otherwise ensure that RPTU is clearly recognizable as a university.
The possibilities of naming in the English-speaking environment:
The basic regulations (as well as the brand manual) also specify the name to be used internationally for all official English-language documents: "University of Kaiserslautern-Landau". If this name is chosen without the possible alternative abbreviation "RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau", the abbreviation should be recognizable in the immediate context, e.g. by using the logo or the abbreviation in the text, e.g. "University of Kaiserslautern-Landau (RPTU)".
According to the Executive Board's decision (dated 25.01.2023), only the short name can be used for suitable purposes, e.g. scientific publications or public relations materials, in an international context: "RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau". This name should only be used if it is clear from the immediate context of the content or the general context that RPTU is a scientific institution or a university (see above).
The RPTU Logo
With the logo and the colors, RPTU has a recognizable, modern and unique look that reflects the diversity and dynamism of our university with its variability. The logo generator helps you to take full advantage of this variability and use it correctly.
