GWC Logo & Seal Downloads

Golden West College Horizontal Logo Golden West College Horizontal Logo Golden West College Horizontal Logo

The GWC logo was adopted September 21, 2005. The design was based on Golden West College’s niche—its location in Huntington Beach, California (Surf City, USA). The goal, achieved by the surfboard shape, was to visually identify GWC as the ‘College in Surf City’.

The GWC logo refers to the joining of two primary elements in the graphic identity system—the surfboard logo and the logotype. The logotype consists of the word identifiers GOLDEN WEST COLLEGE, HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA set in the official Optima typeface and style. HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA must always be a smaller font size by at least 2 pts.

The GWC Logo is unique and is one of the most important visual elements of the identity. In order for the logo to be used effectively in a considerable variety of applications, the system provides 5 different logos for Golden West College as well as variety of alternate logos exampled on the following pages.

Do not try to alter any aspect of the logo and do not try to recreate it. Use only the logos which have been supplied and approved.

If you have questions about the Golden West College brand or how to apply it, contact the College Promotions Department at 714-895-5142 or email promotions@gwc.cccd.edu.

achievement, the year GWC was founded—1966, and GWC’s first slogan—Let Change
be the Tradition
. Its round shape symbolizes perfection.
