A college’s brand identity is the most important element of its visual image. Because of its potential for credibility and influence, and the impression it has on the public, a brand identity can be considered the foundation of all marketing and communications efforts.

The brand identity demonstrates COM’s commitment to quality, its staff, its public and its goals. It must make a memorable impression, one that clearly communicates the College’s basic mission and philosophy and reflects its significance. A single, consistent message, therefore, is key.

These guidelines were developed over many months with the involvement of every segment of the College. The result of this collaboration is a Brand Identity System that represents the rich heritage of College of the Mainland, and expresses it with distinction. Such a visible and unique “signature” conveys to the world that COM is a college with a mission and purpose, committed to excellence and diversity, and focused on the higher educational needs of its students.

These guidelines will help every individual member of the COM family, as well as vendors, to apply this new Brand Identify System consistently and accurately.

The Marketing and Communications Department is charged with the responsibility to oversee and coordinate the application of the Brand Identity System, thereby assuring the Board that these standards are applied correctly and appropriately in publications, advertisements and products used throughout the College and its learning centers.
