Pennsylvania Highlands Community College’s brand defines the College’s place and prominence in higher education throughout the Southern Alleghenies region and beyond. The College’s brand enhances the recognition of the College and its outstanding programs, from both a credit and non-credit side. Overall design and editorial harmony enables all communications materials to have a cumulative positive impact.
The objective is not to make every publication look the same, but rather to give each piece common elements that will clearly communicate that it is a part of the Pennsylvania Highlands “community”. Essential elements of our brand include, but are not limited to, the following: logos, editorial standards, web presence, colors, typography, and photography. For a more in-depth and complete look at the College’s brand, please refer to our College Brand Guidelines.
