UF’s New Brand Garners CASE Circle of Excellence Award
WASHINGTON, D.C.—An initiative at University of Findlay that helped establish a new, cohesive brand for the University has received international recognition.
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), headquartered in Washington, D.C., with members around the world, recently named University of Findlay a bronze award winner of its 2016 Circle of Excellence awards program.
Findlay was recognized for its efforts to develop and launch a new visual identity system for the University that reflects both the University’s heritage and the forward-looking culture that drives the University today.
“The University is honored to be recognized by CASE alongside so many prestigious domestic and international institutions,” said Rebecca Jenkins, director of marketing and communication for the University. “Our goal with the new graphic identity was to unite our University under one cohesive brand that honors our history, resonates with our students, faculty and staff who live our mission every day, and reinforces our vision for the future.”
A panel of experts selected the institution’s entry in the Visual Identity Systems category from among 25 entries. In 2016, more than 710 higher education institutions, independent schools and nonprofits worldwide submitted more than 3,350 entries for consideration in nearly 100 categories. Judges gave 331 awards: 103 bronze; 119 silver, 83 gold and 17 grand gold.
