Why Negative Space Matters in a School Logo

On our school branding blog, we talk a lot about lettering, mascots, fonts, ambiance—the meat and potatoes that would make up things like championship banners and customized outdoor padding.

Why Stair Graphics Matter in the Implementation of Your School Brand

Stairs: everyone loves to hate them. We all know, though, despite our constant griping about climbing them, that they serve an important purpose logistically. Did you know that they serve an important purpose in your school branding, too? We’re not talking about the stairs themselves—it’d be a little hard to build a staircase in the shape of your school’s mascot!—but about what you put on the stairs.
