Symbols and illustrations
Symbols are sometimes necessary to explain matters but must be used very sparingly within the University house style and never as the dominant element. They should not act as the ‘visual framework’ of a communication. If symbols must be used, they should be simple and restrained.
Technical drawings must always be simple and to the point. The number of colours should be no more than strictly necessary from a functional point of view. Different line widths must be avoided as much as possible in such drawings.
Illustrations acting as replacements of photographs must be as representative of this image as possible. Simplifications may be introduced but this illustration must not become unauthentic. This means an illustration style containing, for example, outlines and ‘real’ shapes. Use of elements from comics or fantasy figures is prohibited in University communications.
