American International College’s Athletics department maintains a unique set of brand elements and marks to be used in communications materials, on uniforms, in signage, and as needed to identify Athletics-focused content. Without prior approval from the Office of Marketing and Communications, no prior or alternative Athletics brand marks should be used.
The ‘AIC’ athletics styled lettermark serves as the primary identifying brand for American International College Athletics materials. This should be used in any situation identifying AIC athletics before other tertiary elements. Color variations are available where appropriate pending on background and use.
The illustrated ‘Rex’ brand mark and variation should be used as a tertiary supportive brand element in AIC Athletics collateral. All earlier iterations of illustrated Yellow Jacket marks should be discontinued from use and are not permitted.
In situations where the College is otherwise identifiable or when deemed unnecessary, the Yellow Jackets wordmark may be used as an identifying brand mark for AIC’s Athletics department.
Consistent with best practices in NCAA programs, AIC maintains general Athletics social media accounts as well as individual program-specific accounts. Unless otherwise specified, the College’s general social media best practices should be implemented. Content for program-specific accounts should be in alignment with Athletics Communications and imagery, including profile graphics, should be consistent with those guidelines outlined by the Office of Marketing and Communications.
AIC Athletics makes use of the Box Out Sports platform to create high-quality, customizable graphics consistent with the College’s brand. Game graphics for social media, email, web, or other use should be created using pre-approved Box Out Sports templates unless otherwise specified.
Traditional print or large format printed materials should be requested through the Office of Marketing and Communications. Design and print setup assistance are available as needed.
To ensure AIC’s student-athletes are easily recognizable, apparel and uniforms should be produced using the following guidelines unless otherwise specified or approved by the Office of Marketing and Communications or senior Athletics administration:
