Applying the College Logo – Customizing the centered format

It is permissible for schools and departments within the institution to customize the primary logo to represent their respective program. Details on how to modify the primary logo are shown here:

All customized versions of the primary logo must be provided by the Office of Public Relations.

Because all potential iterations can not be predicted, some customizing may require additional direction. In those instances please contact the Office of Public Relations for assistance.

Do not modify the placement and type of the icon and Georgia Gwinnett College type. These components should remain consistent through all iterations of the primary logo.

spacing requirements for GGC vertical logo

Use metrics inherent within the logo to space the customized components – as illustrated here. Use the cap height of the "G" in "Georgia" to determine the spacing between the word "COLLEGE" and the top of the dividing rule. Use the cap height of the E in the word "COLLEGE" to determine the spacing between the bottom of the dividing rule and the top of the cap height of the school or department name. The dividing rule should maintain the same thickness as the crossbars of the letter "E" in the word "COLLEGE" and remain the width of the type "Georgia Gwinnett." School and department titles should be set in the font Avenir Light Oblique with a letter-spacing value of 100 and a cap height equal to that of the word "COLLEGE."
