College Logo

The college logo is the foundation of MCC’s graphic identity. It is used on stationery, business cards, advertising, web pages, printed materials, and anywhere the MCC affiliation should be known. The shield and wordmark together comprise the official college logo.

Downloadable files and guidelines explaining how to use the logos are available on the Logos & Tagline page.

College Colors/Color Palette

These college colors were developed for print and display projects. If you intend to distribute a document electronically, post it on the web or create a website for the college, you’ll need to use special versions of these colors that meet web accessibility standards. Please refer to the web standards text color page for these colors and guidance on how to use them.

MCC's official college colors are black and gold. The college logo contains the four colors presented below. Please follow these color definitions when designing for print or display.

The logo in full color is preferred; other options are available. Colors and logos should always be used according to the guidelines. When using the college’s official colors, we strive to reproduce them as accurately and consistently as possible regardless of the medium, material, or method of reproduction.

College Typography

The MCC brand type font families are Clarendon LT Std, Century Schoolbook, Times New Roman, Trade Gothic LT Std, and Arial.

These typefaces have been chosen to harmonize with the brand look and feel developed for the college and should be used consistently in all communications. For more information and examples please refer to the Brand Guidelines document.
