The Importance of Visual Identity
In today’s information age, people are bombarded with hundreds of visual images and messages each day. Successful organizations know that it is important to build and maintain strong visual identity that will cut through the visual “clutter” and be recognized instantly and positively by key audiences. A strong and consistent visual identity can go a long way in helping an organization further its message and its mission.
In March 2002, the Messiah College Council approved a new logo that will serve as the institution’s primary visual identity mark on stationery, merchandise, brochures, advertisements, and other printed and electronic communications. It is important that the College’s visual communications present a consistent and uniform image. Using visual guidelines promotes the identity of Messiah College and increases our visibility in the community.
These visual identity guidelines have been provided to help the campus
community use Messiahs visual identity marks consistently and to help
represent Messiah College in the most effective manner possible.
