Help us keep the CCC brand strong!

In 2014, CCC began an inclusive process to develop and design a new college brand. Consider the old brand retired. Now is the time to incorporate the scarlet and navy and the new logo into all printed and electronic pieces that in any way represent Clackamas Community College. Clear and consistent branding gives the college a professional and recognizable way to communicate our values and reputation with our community.

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please contact Kevin Anspach, Creative Lead/Brand Designer at

A note on usage and approvals

  1. To build brand recognition, the CCC logo is required on all materials (print, web, video) that publicize a CCC event, class, program or service. For athletics, the mascot logo is required in place of (or in addition to) the CCC logo. The preferred location of the logo is on the bottom of the page (left, center or right).
  2. Logo and mascot usage must be reviewed and approved prior to printing/ publishing, embroidery, silkscreening or ASG stamping to confirm the logos are being used correctly and effectively. It’s a quick process done via email and is typically reviewed on the same day it’s submitted,but may take up to two business days. Please build sufficient time into the project deadline to allow for any required edits.
  3. Send your pdf proof via email with the subject line BRAND REVIEW to or

Go, Cougars! Our Cougar assets are designed for use by your athletic teams, clubs and bookstore.

The mascot

The Mascot logo replaces the “interlocking three Cs” logo and is a mark for all sports teams. The clever use of descending sizes of the stylized “CCC” forms the foundation of the cougar’s head. This logo is as fierce, bold and aggressive as our athletes.

The wordmark

In the same way our mascot logo communicates who we are, our Cougars wordmark is also an essential element in forwarding the athletic brand identity. A customized font, it borrows the “teeth” element from the stylized “C” of our mascot logo and helps to imply aggression, movement and strength.

The mascot / wordmark combo (MASCOtext)

Together, our mascot and our wordmark combine to create a compelling and powerful brand identifier.

About the Garment Guides

Use the Garment Guide as a roadmap to which file to provide vendors for for determining the desired color combination of the mascot and mascot / word mark combo logos on T-shirts, hoodies, gear, uniforms and more. Note: These files are optimized for screen printing and embroidery vendors, and designed to have the fabric color act as an ink color, helping save the cost of additional inks. They are not meant for use in print or online materials.

Note: All materials featuring the mascot, wordmark or mascot /wordmark combo logos that have not been produced by the Creative Services team in the College Relations & Marketing Department must be reviewed for brand compliance prior to being printed, published or distributed. The approval process may take up to two business days, so please build sufficient time into the project deadline to allow for any required edits.

Educational Focus Areas

Find your focus! Educational Focus Areas (EFAs) are groups of related programs that CCC offers. With EFAs, new students who have not yet decided on a specific program of study have the opportunity for more supported exploration with the help of career guidance, foundational coursework and assigned professional advisors.

There are eight EFA areas, and each is assigned a unique icon and color. New EFA assets have been developed and are available for use. Whether it's a PowerPoint template or graphics to help brand your EFA materials, you'll find them here.

Not finding what you're looking for? Reach out to Creative Services for help or to request additional EFA assets to suit your needs.
