SKC APPAREL GUIDELINES & NON-INSTITUTIONAL USE OF CHARGING BISON LOGO

The “Non-Institutional” use of the Bison logo is acceptable in: Bison Gear created for and sold at the SKC Bookstore, Bison Athletics as well as advertising to promote department or club event.

“Non-Institutional” means that the Charging Bison Logo is not seen to the right of the words “Salish Kootenai College”. The words “Salish Kootenai College”, “Bison”, or acronym “SKC” must accompany the Charging Bison logo in its near vicinity, but may be elsewhere in the design. If dictated by the nature of the design may be in a “non-official” font.

NON-INSTITUTIONAL ADVERTISING EXAMPLES

THE BISON ALWAYS CHARGES FORWARD ON APPAREL

To indicate that SKC is always moving forward, when presented on the sides of apparel the Bison must point to the front.

The exception to this rule is with the “Institutional” use of the Charging Bison Logo. In this case only the arrangement for small logo embroidery is acceptable.

OFFICIAL BISON GEAR COLORS

As we are aiming for a consistent representation of Salish Kootenai College this carrys over to the clothes that bear its name and marks. The official approved apparel colors for SKC are Black, Vegas Gold, White, and Grey (there are various shades of grey that can be used).

There are occasions that a garment with a different color may be acceptable, but these will be few and far between. If a specific circumstance arrises that may require a different colored garment please submit the garment color, design and purpose to the marketing committee for approval. These deviations will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

EVENT & FUNDRAISER GEAR

There are many times when a department, program, or student group organizes an event. These events often take place on campus, or are organized with SKC resources. Events such as awareness campaigns, fun runs, fundraisers, concerts do not fall under the official Bison Gear banner and as such do not need to be in official SKC colors. Although there are no requirements for apparel colors in these instances, we still need to adhere to the naming conventions and logo usage for official SKC marks . For instance, if using the Charging Bison Institutional logo alone or with a department name mark, the logo can only be in white, black or vegas gold. Using the words “Salish Kootenai College” “SKC” or “Bison” in other than Lithos and Source Sands Pro is acceptable in these cases. Likewise, there are no guidelines for specific ink colors. Non-institutional event/fundraiser gear should still be submitted to the Marketing Committee for review to ensure SKC’s standards are met.

SMALLEST ALLOWABLE SEAL AND LOGO FOR EVENT SPONSORSHIP

As an active participant in our community SKC is proud to sponsor events that vary from fun runs to awareness to festivals. In doing so it is appreciated that event organizers respect our commitment to their events by treating the SKC marks properly. Legibility of all elements is of the utmost importance. Please inform printers not to exceed the minimum allowable size for the SKC seal or the Charging Bison Institutional logo.

It is acceptable for a one color version of the SKC Seal and Charging Bison Institutional logo to be printed in the same color as the rest of the participating sponsor logos. Keep in mind the Bison mark can NEVER be in red. If the sponsor logo will be printed in red or on red please use the SKC Seal.

It is SKC’s intent that the SKC Seal be used in sponsorship of more official and academic events, programs and efforts like AIHEC and AICF events.

 

Smallest allowable sponsor image size: 1 Inch wide.
