Hill College

Branding Toolkit

Writing Style

In most cases, the Hill College Marketing Department utilizes The Associated Press Stylebook when writing for news media and marketing pieces. There are times, however, when this style is deviated from for institutional purposes.

            Examples of AP Style include:

  1. Titles are only capitalized when before a name.
  2. Courtesy titles are not used.
  3. The word college and state are not capitalized if used alone.
  4. Subjects are not capitalized if not derived from proper nouns i.e. English (England), Spanish (Spain).

The Hill College Logo Usage Guidelines

The Hill College logo is the core component to the Hill College brand. In order to protect and grow the Hill College brand, we have a distinguishable logo that can be used to mark genuine Hill College resources and approved third-party content.  Approval for use can re requested by filling out this form. (Make this a link. Information for the form is at bottom of page). This document explains and outlines its proper use.

The Hill College Logos

The Hill College Logo consists of three parts:

  • The Star, representing the optimism in which every day should be viewed
  • The two-color field on which the star lays, representing the past and future
  • The Hill College name

The Hill College logo can be vertical or horizontal and viewed preferably in full color, according to media.

Examples of full color logo in vertical and horizontal positions with download links below for each type.

Sometimes, often due to production costs, only one color of ink is available and so the Hill College logo must be reproduced using only one color. In this scenario, the logo must be clearly distinguishable from the background color. You must honor the Hill college logo palette when possible, using black or white if necessary.

  • The bottom right side of the field, star and “HILL” are to be white with an outline, while the top left side of the field and “COLLEGE” are to be solid.
  • The only allowed single colors are the red and blue listed below in “The Hill College Color Palette” or black and white.
