Official Colors and Logos

The official South Texas College logo, the only approved visual image that symbolizes the College as one consolidated institution, is the graphic shown here. Elements of the logo must not be re-arranged or used in any order except what is shown here. Acceptable color arrangements are provided below.

Elements of the logo cannot be dissected from the overall design, stretched or scaled out of proportion. Any attempt to re-create the art, type, or spacing and styling of the logo by desktop publishing or word processing will result in inconsistencies that will compromise the integrity of the logo.

Logo Guidelines

The Office of Public Relations and Marketing must approve any project that will incorporate the South Texas College logo in its production before production begins.

A Public Relations staff member must sign off on the project's requisition before it is submitted to the Purchasing Department. If the requisition does not have the proper signatures, Purchasing will reject the requisition and send it back to the originating department.

Signing of the requisition only constitutes the Office of Public Relations and Marketing's consent to the requisition process. The department must still give its final approval of the finished artwork if it is not submitted with the project's requisition.

The South Texas College logo is not for use by student organizations. Please select from the approved Jaguar Artwork options.

Logo Articles

Identifying articles with the South Texas College name or logo can be an effective marketing tool for our institution.

When approaching the opportunity to affix the college name or logo to products such as pens, mugs, shirts, supplies, t-shirts, etc., it is necessary to obtain approval through the Office of Public Relations and Marketing.
