The State Center Community College District logo is a direct link between the District and the people we serve. Consistent use of the logo increases public awareness and recognition of the District.
The State Center Community College District logo comes in a few different versions. Here you'll find a list of the different variations and suggestions about how to use each version.
This version of the logo uses a san-serif typeface for the wordmark and is best suited for print advertisements and other printed publications that have a modern design aesthetic.
This version of the logo uses a serif typeface for the wordmark and is best suited for more formal and traditional print publications. It should be centered in the layout.
The logo must be used according to the SCCCD manual of graphic standards and be placed prominently on all District materials. The logo may not be used on personal documents, projects, letters, resumes, etc.
The SCCCD logo does not need to appear on materials for individual campuses. However, the signature line “State Center Community College District” should be included in all advertising and/or other print collateral; exceptions to this policy must be approved by the SCCCD Public & Legislative Relations office.
The signature line is often used in conjuction with the official educational site listing. Learn more in the Best Practices section of this site.
This diagram indicates the staging specifications for the logo. The logo must be surrounded on all sides by the specified clear space to separate it distinctly from any other graphic elements. This clear space and separation from other elements provides graphic impact and preserves the integrity of the logo.
In all logo versions the clear space is equal to the height of the second line of initials ("CCD") in the logo mark. The clear space varies with the size of the logo.
The minimum size for the SCCCD logo or SCCCD logo + wordmark is 3/8" tall (95mm) for print, or 50 pixels tall for web. At heights less than this, the clarity and integrity of the logo is compromised.
Light Color Background
If the background color is light enough to provide sufficient contrast to the logo colors, use the positive logo.
Dark Color Background
When printed on a solid black or dark color background, the logo appears in reverse, where all the elements are white. This version of the logo should be used very rarely.
Light Image Background
Make sure to position the logo in a simple part of the photo. There should be enough contrast so that the logo is easily recognizable—the value of the background should be at least 75% lighter than the value of the cyan in the logo.
Dark Image Background
Use a reversed version of the logo when printing on top of a dark photographic background. There should be enough contrast so that the logo is easily recognizable and it must be over an uncluttered area.
When using the logo, please make sure to use official artwork provided by the public relations office. No part of the logo may be scanned, redrawn, or the type reset. Please do not alter the logo in any way.
To avoid a stretched appearance, please maintain the aspect ratio when re-sizing the logo. Use the shift key when drag sizing (applies to both Windows and Macintosh platforms), or use equal percentages when using a scaling tool.
