Edmonds CC celebrates 50 years with new logo, look07/19/16
Edmonds Community College is proud to announce the launch of its new logo and look as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
A fresh, updated logo, featuring the Edmonds CC trident, will replace the classic “E” logo, which has been used for almost 30 years.
"Our new logo and look captures the values and mission of the college in a distinctive and memorable way," said Dr. Jean Hernandez, Edmonds CC President. "I am excited for our new brand to carry the mission and work of the college forward as we celebrate 50 years of student success."
Designers of the logo from Red Rokk, Inc. of Bellingham, Wash. said “The Trident” logo consists of welcoming arms, a strong foundation, and a sharp pinnacle to guide all students, faculty, employees, and community members to success. Red Rokk, Inc. facilitated the college’s rebranding process using campus and community input through surveys and focus groups.
The logo earned an “Oooooohhhhh snap!” from Edmonds CC Assistant Director of the Center for Student Engagement and Leadership Dennis Denman when it was unveiled on June 30 on the college’s Facebook page.
It will be used on all college materials, including diplomas, stationery, flash drives, T-shirts, EdPasses, and more. It also will be featured on key campus signage and all digital and print media.
The Triton Mascot also has a new look in hues of blue. It features Triton, the mythological Greek sea god, inside of a powerful shield and proudly wearing the trident on his crown. He is modern, fierce and looks his competitors in the eyes.
The Edmonds CC Tritons Athletics logo will incorporate a variation of “The Trident” with a custom typeface, called “Tritones,” that was created exclusively for Edmonds CC Athletics. An athletic “E” logo also was created for the college’s baseball and softball teams.
The college is in the midst of a soft launch of the new brand this summer and will be rolling it out this fall and throughout the commemorative school year.
