New logo to match aspirations
10th March 2009 4:02pm - Return to press releases
East Riding College has launched a new logo to reflect its long-term aspirations and development plans.
The new design (top right) was drawn up by Hornsea firm CRS Design following a six-month process, which included consultations with students and staff.
The "spark" motif is now being rolled out through the College's sites, replacing the "running man" logo which had existed since the creation of East Riding College in 2002 by the merger of Beverley College and East Yorkshire College in Bridlington.
The new logo continues the use of green and blue as its main colours, a reference to the coast and countryside of the East Riding.
Principal Derek Branton said: "This is a very ambitious college, as you can see from our campus development plans in Bridlington and Beverley.
"Our aim is to continue to provide high quality education and training for individuals and companies throughout the East Riding
"Our previous logo had dated quite a lot since 2002 and we needed something which reflects the energy and aspirations of East Riding College.
"The new design has gone down very well with students and staff, and matches our desire to continue to move forward over the coming years."
Chris Burkill, designer and proprietor at CRS Design, said: "This was an enjoyable and interesting project to work on and it was exciting to play a part in the aspirations of East Riding College.
"The logo design is deliberately simple but gives an impression of fun, direction and momentum, which are some of the main things students look for from a college."
The logo project was carried out to a strict, low budget and the old design is being phased out gradually to reduce wastage.
The new logo will be used exclusively from the start of the new academic year in September.
