Brand Standards & Guidelines

A visual identity employs the use of logos, typefaces and colors to form a clearly recognizable image for Northland. These elements work in concert to uphold the core values of the college's brand. Brand standards ensure we are visually communicating to our core audiences in a uniform fashion.

Templates and Stationery

Find design templates, guidelines and tools to help you effectively put Northland’s visual identity into practice for your communication, event, and presentation needs.


Business stationery is the largest, most frequent use of the Northland identity. Each piece of business stationery — letterhead, envelopes, business cards, and name badges — provides the opportunity to solidify the Northland brand. The College has a number of campuses, programs, and departments, so it is vital to maintain consistency in business stationery.

Business Documents

PowerPoint presentations, agendas, cover sheets, styled Word documents, brochures and flyers.

Email Signatures

Email is our most common form of day-to-day communication and therefore, one of the most visible ways we communicate with our audiences and each other. Clear, consistent email identification strengthens the Northland brand.


Personal Release

All subjects whose image, video or voice will be used for marketing or promotional purposes — including print communications, video, web or social media — should complete and sign a personal release. Releases are the responsibility of the party creating the image. Releases should be retained for as long as the image is useable. Download Northland’s official personal release form below.
