Graphic Identity Standards

The college's Graphic Identity Standards serve to provide consistency in the graphic identity of Allan Hancock College. The standards outline proper use of college colors, fonts, and logos (both official college logo and Spike the mascot), and provides guidance on college apparel, photography, and ADA compliance.

AHC Logo Policies
