Features to include in an academy logo

When having an academy logo designed, start by thinking about what type of institution you’re representing. The graphic design elements you incorporate should be appropriate for the age range of the student population and the school’s academic focus.

For a preschool academy, vivid primary colors and simple geometric shapes call to mind essential pieces of the curriculum. For a prestigious secondary school, common icons include crests, books, and graduation caps.

If your school has an academic specialty, such as the arts or technology, communicate that through logo imagery. An arts school logo might feature paintbrushes or drama masks, while a tech school could feature a laptop or mouse cursor.

Most academies prefer to use their official school colors in their logos. However, be aware that accent colors can play an important role in how your institution is perceived.

For example, white accents are clean and modern, while gray is balanced and neutral. Black can add a serious, traditional, and formal look to a logo, which is fitting for college prep academies and military academies.

Your academy logo should instantly communicate key information about the education you offer as well as your institution’s key values.
