Howard College has defined official policy for the use of colors, seals, and logos in any online or print materials which are created to represent the college (either as a part or a whole).  Materials designed to represent the college must follow these guidelines and should be designed or approved by the Department of Information and Marketing. 

Please refer to this document for guidelines on using official colors, seals, and logos.  It is not our intent to stifle creativity with these guidelines, but it is our intent to brand Howard College and the Southwest Collegiate Institute for the Deaf (SWCID) by conveying consistent messages and visual images to our various audiences.  We wish to outline a consistent set of colors, logos and symbols to be used across all media, including print, web, video, and any promotional materials used by or representing Howard College.
