Brand Guidelines

Brand guidelines provide tips, policies, and procedures for achieving a high quality and consistent look in Prairie State’s publications, advertising, and Web pages. Prairie State’s graphic standards include things like how to use the College logo, number of fonts per document, college colors, and common design features for webpages, flyers, posters, and ads.

These guidelines are also intended to assist PSC employees to effectively use social networking tools to advance the college’s mission and purpose, and to guide participation in these online conversations when employees are acting on behalf of the college. The same general principles that guide our messages and communications in traditional media should apply in the online social networking space. These guidelines were developed consistent with the college’s Board Policy C-21, Use of Information Resources including World Wide Web and Internet.
