Our Identity

Horizontal version of the Los Rios logo

Through this established identity system, the brand’s integrity is maintained, and its recognition is reinforced over time.

Cosumnes River College’s (CRC) focus is on student success and, as a result, enhancing the vitality of our region is represented in this system. With its strong sense of place and history, the mark features the river and foothills of the Sacramento region and a hawk symbolically taking flight.

The Cosumnes River College logo is used on all publications, internal documents, promotions, and collateral material representing the college. The horizontal logo is the preferred version.

Clear Space

It is crucial to protect the space around the logo in order to retain its integrity and impact. The minimum clear space must be used and maintained throughout all college materials. Use the "O" within the wordmark when measuring for the proper clear space. This measuring tool is always in relation to the size of the logo on the page.
