College Logo and Usage

All College publications must include the College of Marin logo. The College logo is available in several different variations and formats. Please contact Nicole Cruz to request a logo file. In addition, the Department of Education requires inclusion of other information related to accessibility and guidance for individuals seeking special assistance. If you have questions about logo usage and required boilerplate content, please contact the College Services Department.

Usage

The College of Marin logo may not be stretched to resize or recolored. Do not tack your department or project name onto the logo or incorporate the logo into a text sentence. Do not try to match your document font to the logo's typeface, as its purpose is to stand out as a recognizable identifier.

Graphic Treatments

Do not apply drop shadows or any other filters or effects to the logo. Do not layer other images or graphic elements on top or behind it.

Placement and Size

Take care in determining the appropriate size of the logo in relation to your project. Logos that are too small to be legible or are oversized look unprofessional. Do not scale or stretch the logo.

The College Seal

The seal is only to be used by the Office of the Superintendent/President for awards, dipolomas, certificates, and the like. The seal and logo should never be used together or altered. The vast majority of College of Marin collateral should use the logo, not the seal.

For additional guidelines regarding use of the College name, official names of programs, offices, and buildings, etc., refer to the College of Marin Styleguide.
