VCC Logo Guidelines

STEP 1: Guidelines


The following describes the terms on which VCC marketing offers you access to our logos. By selecting the "I accept the guidelines" and clicking the "next" button, you accept the terms and conditions below.

 

The logo and corresponding artwork for Vancouver Community College have been carefully designed and produced. Therefore, it is important only the official Vancouver Community College identity mark be used in media applications.

Any attempts to re-create art by scanning, tracing, etc., will result in inconsistencies that compromise the look, thus weakening effectiveness. Rescanning art from a printed piece is not permitted. These standards have been developed with a single purpose — to ensure consistency and preserve the integrity of the college logo throughout a variety of uses.

If for any reason you need a variation of the logo that is not found on the logo download page, please send your request with the specific project details to the Marketing department through drohloff@vcc.ca or dlibonati@vcc.ca.
