Davidson Brand Guide

Davidson Email Banner

The Town of Davidson brand reflects a statement of shared beliefs and represents our commitment to controlling our own destiny as a distinct, sustainable, and sovereign small town. Our sense of community is rooted in citizens who respect each other; in racial and socioeconomic diversity; and in pedestrian and bicycle orientation; all in the presence of a small liberal arts college. Our history and character guide our future. For more about Davidson's core values, click here.

Town of Davidson Logo

Each of the Ds comprising the Town of Davidson logo symbolizes a component of the community: downtown, lake town, home town, and college town and how they influence and inform each other. The red and black colors are a nod to Davidson College, with whose history the town is so closely aligned.

The Davidson logo should primarily be used for marketing and promotional materials. When possible, use the logo in full-color. 

The use of any stylized, animated, hand drawn or other versions of an unofficial logo is not permitted. The logo should not appear distorted (stretched or squeezed) or without the full symbol on the left-hand side. Please consult with the Town of Davidson Communications Director (contact information below) if you have questions or need further assistance.

Typography

Fonts are used to visually reinforce the brand story in all official marketing and communications from the Town of Davidson. The primary font for the town is GARAMOND PREMIER PRO. 

The clear, legible and easily accessible font, CENTURY GOTHIC should be used in body copy when the primary font is not available (i.e. Word, Google Doc, etc).

The body fonts are clear, clean design that allow for legibility at almost any size and its wide range of styles give it the stamina to thrive in bodies of text as well as in display settings.
