The Colby logotype is a unique typographic mark that displays the Colby name and represents the primary brand of Colby. The Colby logotype always appears in Colby Blue or in white on a solid background. For black-and-white applications, it appears in black.
The Colby seal is the College’s historical logo and is no longer used to represent the College. It may not be used in place of the logotype. The seal should only appear as part of the logo/seal unit. This unit, or lockup, is reserved exclusively to represent Colby’s most formal occasions: convocation, baccalaureate, and commencement. The seal may not be used as an additional design element screened back to add detail.
Athletics and Recreation
Colby Athletics and Recreation is one of Colby’s distinctive sub-brands. The Mule head logo, accompanied by the Colby Athletics text set in the distinctive Vitesse font, is unique within NESCAC and also nationally.
Each varsity and club team has a complete set of logos for all uses. Colby Recreation and Colby SAAC also have a complete set available from the Office of Communications upon request.
A sub-brand, or “child” brand of the “parent” brand, supports the message and mission of the parent brand and evolves with the parent brand over time.
When using a sub-brand in a communication piece, include the Colby logotype to connect the sub-brand with the parent (Colby) brand. In turn, the Colby brand is strengthened by the sub-brand, broadening its reach, respect, and standing.
Creating a Department Logo
The Colby logotype is the foundation for each department’s representation at Colby. The Colby logo, positioned on the left, with the department name on the right, make up the department logo.
For a vertical format, the department name appears below the Colby logotype. Department logos follow the same guidelines set forth for the Colby logo.
Contact the Office of Communications to have a department logo created for print or digital use.
