The Foothill College brand is rooted in four core values: equity, student success, trust, and sustainability. Our branding is essential to the Foothill College experience and ensures a consistent look and feel across all touch points. The style guide below is provided to keep the brand focused and unique. The Foothill brand is broken into two groups: academic and student outreach. Please note that though there are two distinct styles for each group, there is still only one overall brand.
About Our Logo
We have introduced a bold and modern logo for the college. Our approach takes elements from our old logo and reimagines them for a new generation. Instead of the mature oak tree we opted for an acorn shape, a symbol that suggests new beginnings, rebirth, and unlimited potential. An education plants a seed of change in every student, and we want Foothill College to nurture that growth.
Breaking down the logo, the acorn cap serves as a reference to our innovative Pacific-Asian architecture. Bold uppercase typography conveys a strong, confident academic feel. It features the new college font called Brandon Text chosen for its superior legibility in both print and digital formats as well as its distinguished character. And, we also reinstated the school colors, Cardinal Red and black.
We have one approved logo with three orientations (Main, Stacked, and Long) for use on all collateral and promotional materials. Each logo is available in color and black & white versions. Please refer to the style guide for appropriate use – recoloring, adding effects or editing the logo is not permitted.
