The Sustainable Columbia mark visually connects the many programs on campus that contribute to the success of the campus sustainability efforts by helping meet the goals set forth in the 2017 Sustainability Strategic Plan.
A brand-identity style-guide was also created to ensure all lock-ups and logos are used correctly, and provides a variety of examples for use on PowerPoint templates, stationary, business cards, signage, etc.
