The Pennsylvania Highlands Mountain Symbol may be used alone. However, the logotype cannot be used without the accompanying Mountain Symbol. The Mountain Symbol follows the same color schemes as the one color version of the logo.
Color. On screen, the logo should be reproduced in the College’s hex color, and subsequently using the RGB color. In print, the logo should be reproduced in the College’s spot color (Pantone), and subsequently using the process color (CMYK), or in black/white.
Sizing. There is no maximum size limit, but use discretion when sizing the logo. The logo should not appear small enough to where the words ‘Community College’ become illegible. Additionally, if using a JPG or PDF file, the logo should not become so large that it appears pixelated.
