Graphic Identity Standards
A distinctive identity communicates important information about an institution’s stability, credibility, and strength. All publications or communications distributed off campus or to a reading public larger than an individual class or student group must adhere to the graphic standards listed here.
Publications produced with private funds or to support student organizations are also subject to these guidelines if Endicott College’s name is used in any way to support or promote the organization or activity.

The master logo is the preferred logo version and should be a starting point in the creation of all marketing materials.Whenever possible, the master logo should appear in the College blue.
The logo must be present on all College communications. This includes, but is not limited to, brochures, stationery, business cards, signage, and the College website.
Never manipulate the logo in any way.
Do not create secondary (sub) logos to represent a school, college, center, institute, program, or event.
You must not…

While the master logo is the preferred logo version, a stacked version of the logo has been created for exceptional circumstances or space constraints.
The master logo is a combination of the College icon and wordmark. While the master logo is the preferred logo version of the College, the logo elements can be used independently.
Sub-brand logos distinguish the individual schools, colleges, offices, and other sub-entities while demonstrating a connection to the College. These sub-brands complement, but do not replace, the master logo.
