Visual identity is an important part of communicating who we are. The following information is intended to serve as a districtwide guide for employees.
Primary Color Blue
We use a specific blue to represent the three colleges and district office comprising Seattle Colleges. It is our signature color.
Seattle Colleges Blue
Secondary Color for Each College
Along with our signature, unifying blue, specific secondary colors help designate each college and highlight their individuality.
North Seattle College Green
Seattle Central College Gold
South Seattle College Orange
Refer also to our color guidelines for web pages.
District and College Logos
We use four logos at Seattle Colleges: one logo for the district as a whole and one for each college (North, Central, and South). These logos follow a similar design formula, with an icon to the left and the name to the right. (Note: the images below are intended to serve as examples for illustration only. These versions of our logos are low-resolution and web-based.)
The Seattle Colleges logo offers the option to include the three college names immediately below.
Order of Colleges
When we list our three colleges, the preferred order is North, Central, South. This is intentionally a geographically ordered list, although the sequence is also alphabetical with the full names of the colleges, North Seattle College, Seattle Central College, and South Seattle College. This geographic order also applies when we list the three colleges as part of the Seattle Colleges logo (see above).
Discontinued Tagline: “One of the Seattle Colleges”
As of 2020, we have discontinued the use of the tagline “One of the Seattle Colleges”. Colleges no longer need to use this line with their individual college logos.
For more informal occasions, each college has adopted a mascot.
