Rod of Asclepius
The Rod of Asclepius is an ancient symbol for medicine, and with the V added, it's a symbol of veterinary medicine. Asclepius was the Greek god of medicine, and the snake on his staff was said to have delivered him a healing herb.
This rod illustration was created by UC Davis alumnus and brand illustrator Steven Noble and it is exclusive to the school—external units must ask permission from the communications team to use it if not using it to represent the school. In addition, the following rules apply to its usage within the school:
- The rod illustration primarily was created to use as a watermark-style design element to add background visual interest. If you are using it in this way, try screening it back to 10-15% and then adjust the intensity as needed from there.
- You may use the illustration as a regular visual element (not screened back) such as on a flyer, but do not use it as a substitute for the Veterinary Medicine logo.
Please check with the communications team with questions or for usage suggestions.

Email banners & templates
Branded email banners professionalize mass internal communications such as event notices or other announcements that are sent by students, faculty and staff. Please contact the communications team if you would like an email banner that features a particular photo or subject.
These banners are available for use by the school's faculty, staff, and students for official school business, activity, and event communications. The banners can also be used on printed pieces such as flyers or one-page program descriptions. A banner should be used for ALL announcements going out from an SVM unit or program to groups within the school.
For users of Outlook 365, copy and paste the template linked below into your "My Templates".
Internal email subject line IDs
To help internal audiences identify and sort mass emails quickly, the school has adopted subject line identifiers. These identifiers are placed at the beginning of an email’s subject line, followed by the topic. For example:
- [Event] Global Programs Day is April 18
- [IT Update] Scheduled VMACS Maintenance: December 1
These IDs will evolve over time. If you have suggestions for additions or improvements, please contact the communications team.
