The Logo

The Northern Essex Community College logo is the most recognizable piece of our brand. All official materials that are circulated within the college community or externally to the public must bear this logo. Depending on the situation, different versions of the logo could be used. The logo consists of two main components: the shield and the wordmark. These two components should never be used separately.

NOTE: Some variations of the NECC logo—including information on sub-brands, Athletics, campaign graphics, and other variations—are available to Faculty & Staff on NECC One. A Faculty or Staff NECC account is required to access these logos.

Primary Logo

This is the college’s primary logo identifier. It must be used on all external or public facing materials.

NECC Color Palette

Beyond our logo, color is the most recognizable aspect of our brand identity. Using color appropriately is one of the easiest ways to make sure our materials reflect a cohesive NECC image or visual story.

Typography for Marketing Communications

Typography is an essential part of an organized, consistent brand identity. Utilizing our college typefaces will support our brand recognition. The primary typeface family to be used on all NECC marketing communications is Myriad Pro. This typeface was chosen for its readability, accessibility, and its wide range of available weights and widths. Myriad Pro can be used can be used on its own, or together, with our serif Typeface. These fonts are included in Adobe Creative Cloud, and can not be separately distributed.
