To ensure we communicate one clear and unifying visual identity to our diverse audiences, Marketing and Communications suggests the use of our visual assets (logo, fonts and color palette) for official college communications.
This system includes the resources below, which reinforce a strong and definitive
impression of CCRI's quality, professionalism and commitment to academic excellence.
Please refer to our CCRI style guide for use of logo, fonts and color palette.
- Official CCRI logo
- Official CCRI seal
- Official CCRI signatures
- CCRI Presentation template
- CCRI Letterhead and envelopes
Consistency in the way these elements are presented will strengthen all facets of this institution by projecting one visual look to the public.
Publications by CCRI represent its most significant outreach and therefore are an important component of the visual communications system. Publications include any or all brochures, catalogs, flyers, posters, postcards, websites or other materials representing the college or program within the college.
All college publications must use the official type fonts (Gill Sans MT and Times Roman). They are kept purposely broad to encourage individual creative solutions. At the same time, they provide in-house designers with a common template intended to ensure consistency and standardization of materials representing the college.
Each publication produced for CCRI should display the official CCRI logo and/or CCRI Signature.
To be successful in communicating our identity, it is essential that each project adheres to the standards outlined. By doing so, you will help us project a clear, unifying image for CCRI.
If you have questions about the proper use of the CCRI logo or signatures, please contact the Department of Marketing and Communications.
