College Lockups

We are one college, but a community of many.

The LCC institutional logo is one of the college's most important visual elements and should be treated as a graphic icon. Treat college marks as artwork, not as typography, meaning they should never be manipulated in any way. This rule includes but is not restricted to type, contrast, surrounding boxes, shadows, outlines and embellishments. Do not create secondary (sub) logos to represent a department, center, institute or event, as this is confusing to audiences and dilutes our goal of creating a common, reinforcing image.

  • A college lockup is a unique identifier between divisions, departments and programs throughout the college that still maintains the integrity of the institutional logo.
  • The LCC institutational logo should be used instead individual collegemarks whenever possible.
  • Specific applications to justify the use of a college lockup are custom apparel and department/divisional letterheads.
  • Please consult the Communications and Marketing Department to ensure proper use of a college lockup.

Incorrect Logo Uses

Changing LCC brandmarks in any way dilutes the indentity of the college.


To ensure LCC's visual identity remains unified across all applications, do not compromise the logo in any way. Although these restrictions are demonstrated below using the LCC institutional logo, these principles apply to all logos and wordmarks used throughout the college.

  • When placing the institutional logo or other brandmarks in documents, be sure it is not placed on a busy background or one with minimal contrast. This ensures the logo's visibility and recognizability.
  • Make sure to use the appropriate amount of spacing around the logos, as demonstrated on the college marks page.
  • If you are using any old logos in your department or office, please contact marketing@lcc.edu to work on a plan to implement the current visual identity.

Shown above are examples of how not to display the LCC brandmarks

  • DO NOT attempt to re-create the logo or its typography.
  • DO NOT alter the color of the logo or its typography.
  • DO NOT set the logo on an angle or arc.
  • DO NOT scale or omit elements of the logo in any way.
