NC STATE UNIVERSITY BRANDING

The NC State rebrand was a comprehensive restructuring of the brand architecture which defines the relationship of the core NC State brand to the sub-brands and extended brands. The rebrand of the visual identity created a flexible organizational framework allowing for the new brand architecture and and cohesive multi-scaled touchpoints for NC State’s audiences. The rebrand of the visual identity included a new logo system, new color guidelines, new imagery guidelines, and typography guidelines. All of these systems were scaffolded for the various university colleges and partners depending on where they fit into the brand architecture.
