Oak Knoll Branding Guidelines
Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child is a Catholic independent school, coeducational from pre-K to grade 6, and all girls in grades 7 to 12. Embracing Oak Knoll’s longstanding history and tradition of educational excellence, the school unveiled a new logo and tagline in July 2015. Faith. Wisdom. Service. These are the guiding principles that form the foundation of the Oak Knoll community. When using the Oak Knoll logo, we ask that you please adhere to the following guidelines to ensure the dignity and sanctity of the school identity is upheld.
The official school logo appears horizontally over a white or light backgrounds with navy blue and gold font. The logo may also appear over navy blue or dark backgrounds. In this case, the OAK KNOLL must be switched to white text for readability.
Though Oak Knoll was founded in 1924, Grace Hall, a manor house originally known as “Stoneover,” constructed in 1887, is the campus’ most iconic building. It houses administrative offices, classrooms and Grace Hall Chapel – the spiritual core of the campus that hosts a myriad of Upper School, Lower School and staff liturgies
Oak Knoll School colors are navy and gold, specifically Pantone 289 and Pantone 117. The school logo may appear in white and gold in certain circumstances. The logo is available in an all-black, but must be pre-approved.
Playfair and Lato are the primary typefaces for the Oak Knoll School logo. There are no exceptions. Garamond is the approved font for all Oak Knoll School communications.
Athletics Branding Guidelines
In the spring of 2017, Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child unveiled a rebrand of its award-winning Royals athletics program to complement the 2015 refresh of the school’s official logo and colors. The Royals rebrand includes a modern take on the OKS monogram and embraces the longstanding, yet seldom-used, lioness mascot.
We are OKS, and the diagonal monogram is the chief visual component of the overall Oak Knoll athletics brand. Its bold, clean, crisp lines represent the proud 93-year tradition that is Oak Knoll athletics. This logo was designed to to be a component on uniforms, hats, accessories and clothing. It must be used in four-color (white, gold, navy and gray).
The linear monogram is a secondary option to the primary logo. This should be used sparingly and only on athletic uniforms. It also must be used in four color.
An Oak Knoll Royal is regal, confident and fearless. Our new spirit logos feature our contemporary lioness mascot, which symbolizes the attributes of an Oak Knoll athlete. These hand-drawn designs may be used on uniforms, spirit wear, accessories, etc. in four color.
Oak Knoll School colors are navy and gold. The Royals gold is a slight variation from the official school gold and a gray option is added. The Royals colors may only be used on approved athletics uniforms and apparel. They may not be used for general school clothing and accessories. Athletics apparel may only use the athletics gold.
The primary athletics uniform font is UA Premier. All additional fonts need to be approved prior to usage.
