The Office of Marketing, Public and Community Relations manages advertising, branding, media relations, publications, promotional photography, communications, graphic design and events for the college. We work with students, faculty and staff to increase awareness of the college through marketing and communication strategies that tell Hocking College’s story.
Guidelines for Print, Media and Online Use
- We strongly prefer the use of the full-color logo on a white background.
- Do not change or alter the height to width ratio of the logo. Do not use the logo upside down, backward or mirrored.
- Do not apply rotation, distortion, transformation, stylization, warping, a drop shadow or any color alterations to the logo. The approved color alternations are available on page 5 of the Brand Usage Guide. Clear space must be kept around the logo at all times. It is the minimum distance the graphic can be from the edges of an electronic document, besides other logos or graphics, or printed edges. Please see page 5 for more details.
- For print, the logo should not appear smaller than 1 inch tall. A one-inch tall version is large enough for a standard 8.5” by 11” page.
- For media use, the Hocking College signature should be used for all stories or coverage pertaining to the campus, academics, non-athletic events, community announcements, etc. Hocking College Athletics have their own branding.
- For online use, the logo should not appear smaller than 100 pixels tall.
- A boundary rectangle of clear space must be observed at all times. At no time is any other artwork or logo to invade a clear or white boundary of space around the rectangular logo.
