Spelman College Visual Identity Guidelines

A major branding element in the marketing of Spelman College is its visual identity program, which consists of guidelines and a work group in the Office of PR/Communications to advise on their use. The Spelman College visual identity program has been designed to support the College’s goals for producing clearly identifiable, high-quality marketing communications for the public. The visual identity guidelines provide general directions for using the College’s official trademarks and symbols.

To ensure that the Spelman College brand is marketed in a consistent and intent manner, certain elements of its trademarks and visual identity must be used in a way that retains their graphic integrity. The visual identity guidelines are designed for implementation in all internal and external publications, and both print and electronic communications.
