College Logo Redesign Project

Edmonds Community College is working with RedRokk to redesign the college’s logo and logotype, athletic logo, mascot image, and establish a new visual style that captures the values and mission of the college and is distinctive and memorable.

Why are we updating our logos? The current Edmonds CC logo was designed in 1988 and is long overdue to be updated. College Relations is leading this project to update the current Edmonds CC image into an identifiable logo and logotype and brand aesthetic to carry the mission and work of the college forward.

The college is ready to redesign the college logo, athletic logo, mascot image, and visual style to evoke a more current, forward-looking impression yet retaining ties to Edmonds CC’s almost 50-year history. The new college logo  will be flexible enough to incorporate a sub-branding strategy for college departments and programs and will be incorporated into a plethora of print and digital media including the website, brochures, flyers, postcards, letterhead, promotional materials, PowerPoint presentations, video, social media, stationery, banners, signage, and other materials as needed.
