Options for use of logos and seal are provided on the following.
Logos must not be "stretched," distorted or printed in a pixilated form.

The Alvin Community College (ACC) logo is academic, balanced and typographic. It uses a stylized A for a distinguished look. A rising arc suggest a lifting or upward motion. The letters are in a pleasant arrangement. The “CC” is slightly smaller for a visual balance which favors the A.
The ACC logo’s shape should never be altered for any use.
Because spatial relationships are compromised at smaller sizes (in printing for example), a second version is available, see fig. 1 & 2.
The appropriate logo should always be reproduced from digital
artwork supplied by ACC’s Graphic & Printing Services Department.
The stylized A should never be used alone, i.e. the A is NOT the logo.
The complete logo uses all three letters as shown.
Because Alvin Community College would like to be recognized by the
name “ACC” it may help the community to begin the association by
supporting the logo. Our long term vision is such that as the logo
becomes recognized, it can begin to stand alone.
The logo conveys the College's public image, and should be used on all
official publications, letterhead, envelopes, business cards, certificates,
brochures and other printed pieces. The logo should also be on
the College web site, College power point presentations, surveys, video,
and T-shirts. The design should consist of the entire logo every time the
design is printed and not separated into component parts, altered in
proportion or printed in color combinations other than those outlined
in this guide. Only electronic or camera-ready versions produced in the
Printing & Graphic Services Department are appropriate for use.
Redrawing, tracing, scanning or using photocopies results in a distortion
and a loss of quality. Do not use design features such as screening,
reproportioning, rotating, or including the logo as part of a pattern
or larger image. Such uses diminish the visual strength and undermine
the goal of creating our strong image.
The logo should never be altered to fit into a space or manipulated in a
way which counters legibility. Any special applications should be
approved by ACC.
