Palomar College logo - Learning for Success

Logo and Design Applications

Logo | Seal | Typography | Letterhead | Envelope | Business Card | Brochures | Folders | PDF Version

Departments and offices may request Classic Crest Natural White letterhead, second sheets, and envelopes--or standard white stationery. The logo on stationery can be all black, black with a silver swoosh and red star, or black with a foil-stamped silver swoosh with foil-stamped red star.

 Please note that a subsidiary system can be used that establishes individual variations of a larger institutional look, e.g., adding the departmental name under the primary logo.
