Further Maintaining our College Brand and Identity
All the following design elements have been approved by the Marketing Office and the Office of Instruction. Their purpose is to facilitate the design look and feel of your department's printed material. They also serve to unify the Cañada College brand across all departments, while still allowing users some freedom to "design within the lines".
Please ALWAYS refer to the Cañada College Style Guide when in doubt of how to place a logo, what typography to use, or which colors are genuine.
Headers and Footers:
The following Headers and Footers can be used on any design template (Word, InDesign, Publisher, Illustrator, FrontPage, etc) to easily maintain our brand on printed materials. They are provided to you in ".png" format, which is ready to include in your design with a "Clear/transparent" background.

Design Template for Tri-Fold Brochure
A tri-fold brochure made with an 8.5"x11" sheet can still be very impactful, while remaining economical. We recomend always designing with a .125" bleed, and printing with vendors who print to the "bleed" or "edge" of the paper.
This InDesign Template can help get you started when designing a tri-fold brochure. The template is already divided into panels, and has your columns set up already.
