What We Do
The MassBay Marketing and Institutional Communications Department works to enhance the College brand and increase enrollment in our degree and certificate programs. We design and produce marketing materials, maintain the website, publicize news and events through traditional and social media, run digital and outdoor advertising campaigns, schedule and support events, and much more. Below are resources to enable MassBay staff can create their own materials while adhering to the brand.
BRAND GUIDELINES60th Anniversary Logos and Templates
To download a logo, right-click or Control-click the image of the logo, and choose Save Image As… from the pop-up menu.
Pennant logo is an image, with the triangle on the right backed by a transparent background. I placed it on the blue back so you could see the triangle on the white page. When you download it, it will have transparent backing. It is not an SVG, and it will pop right in to any vendor website that you create. Please send this logo to any vendor who is affiliated with MassBay Community College and uses the MassBay logo on their portal website. If there is an awkward blue and green logo in a rectangle, from a print document, slapped on a related website, users may fear that the website is a spoof website and not trust it, then they will not enter their personal information. Please message Wendy Walsh firstname.lastname@example.org, the MassBay web developer and web designer, if you have any difficulties.

How to Request Support

Please read the brief FMX & project-specific instructions below and use the button below to submit a project ticket.
If you have any questions about the new system or process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
