Southern Career College Signage Design

Southern Career College Signage Design

Whether a billboard, flyer, or signage throughout the city, print marketing materials can convey relevant information to potential customers in an eye-catching design. For the Southern Career College signage design, Doohickey’s goal was twofold. We wanted to convey the relevant information to potential students while simultaneously encouraging them to call or visit the website for more information. To accomplish these goals, we created clean yet informative signage for the Southern Career College. These signs communicate the college’s location while using urgency within the language. This encourages potential students to take action sooner rather than later. The design also features photography of students following different career paths, to appeal to a wider audience. At the top of the sign, below the college’s logo, we added the headline “Find your future today at SCC!” This language immediately communicates a benefit to potential students. As a result, those students see what they have to gain by contacting the college to sign up for the next term. The Southern Career College signage design is an example of effective marketing using a combination of design and copy.

Shading Options: Flat vs. Dynamic Design


Coloring vector shapes for logos uses either flat colors or gradients. Flat logos typically consist of one or two single shades of color that are applied across the whole shape. Gradient logos use two shades of colors that fade into each other to give a sense of dimension and really help make the logo pop. All gradient logos designed by Doohickey® include a flat color version.

Color Options: Coverage for All Applications


Choosing the right colors is an important part in creating your brand identity, but did you know there are different types of coloring systems in graphic design?

RGB: is typically how your monitor displays color using light.
CMYK: A printing process where the ink is applied on press in a 4 step layered process.
Pantone: A color matching system with set swatches that are premixed and used in printing (like paint at the store)
Hex: A color-coding system used on websites.

File Types: Raster vs. Vector


When it comes to logos, it’s important to have the right files for the right occasion. Pixel-based raster files like JPEGs and PNGs are what you normally see on the web, they come in smaller file sizes and are easy for web browsers to load. However, these files are limited in their size and trying to use them in anything larger than a business card for print can result in low quality pixelation. With EPS and PDF files, you will be able to scale your design to any large sized print and retain the sharpness and quality of the design. This allows your logo to be applied practically anywhere from merchandise to large scale advertising such as billboards.
