    PPEC Logo  
     
    The PPEC logo is the backbone of your brand. Using it correctly on all PPEC publications projects professionalism and establishes an identity your audience can associate with. Incorrect use of the PPEC logo can result in your audience losing trust in and connection to your brand.
     
    Best Logo Practices

The Pikes Peak Early College Style Guide

  • Spell Out School Names, Use Consistent Acronyms 
    Always spell out Pikes Peak Early College on the first reference. For example, “Pikes Peak Early College educates hundreds of children.” On subsequent references the acronym may be used. “Last week PPEC, hosted a guest speaker.”

    Our Style in The Written Word

    When adopting style guides, organizations commit to ensuring consistency and discipline in writing, while limiting confusion. They offer a way to communicate with a set of standards, which are made available across an organization. Pikes Peak Early College mostly follows the Associated Press Stylebook, along with some localized references. 

    Our Brand Fonts

    The District 49 brand consists of two font families, Adobe Garamond Pro and Arial. The Pikes Peak Early College brand is welcome to use these font families in any materials created, including all print, digital and video media. The district fonts may be used together or individually depending on the needs of the individual document, stylistic choice of the author and where the document will ultimately be viewed. In most cases, Adobe Garamond Pro is used for titles and section headers. The District 49 logo uses Adobe Garamond Pro font. Garamond may be used as an alternative when the Adobe Garamond Pro font is not available. Arial is used in the main body of text. Arial is the only font used on D49.org and is the preferred font for digital applications. In general, Arial is better used in digital material and Adobe Garamond Pro is better suited for print applications, but both fonts may be used within a document to create style or enhance presentation.
