Education logo best practices

Colorful Windows with Trees Indoors


As you begin designing your logo, look for colors that reflect the topics and levels you teach. Educational logos for grade schools tend to choose fun, bright colors that resonate with a younger audience (and their parents). Post-secondary and adult education facilities tend to keep things more scholastic and serious in muted tones of green, red, and blue.

Phone Layout with Logo on Screen


Depending on how you deliver instruction, your education logo could appear on everything from online lectures, to diplomas, to brochures, and more. To make sure your logo looks top notch in every application, opt for a clean, simple layout—which will remain recognizable and readable in many different sizes and applications. If you want even more flexibility with where and how you use your logo, you can always design a few variations.

Large Letter A on Rusted Background


Don’t let your logo get marks deducted for illegibility! Make sure your fonts are easy to read in different sizes and mediums, so students can always make sense of your name and slogan. Many education logos feature old-fashioned, uppercase Serif fonts—these fonts are not only easily readable at a variety of sizes, but are also associated with historic academic institutions.

Elaborate Ampersand Symbol on Crowded Desk


Symbols offer a quick way to communicate the values and topics you teach to students. While your symbol doesn’t need to be as elaborate as the crests many universities use, it should be relevant and unique to your educational institution. For any symbol you consider, make sure its style is consistent with your logo’s other elements. With a cohesive logo design, you’re sure to score top marks with students.
