OWN IT: Iona College Annual 2013

Theme Development

OWN IT came about as a play on the name of the college “Iona College”. The staff worked diligently to collect and create stories about how the students owned their college experience. The graphic elements that were used throughout the book to carry the theme through were four unique icons, rule lines, and typography. 

Visual System

The icons were designed to reflect aspects of the campus’ history; trinity knot for the Irish heritage of the school, the cross of the Christian Brothers because they built the school, IC to represent the athletics department, and 1940 to honor the year the school opened.
