In 2017, St Edmund’s College Canberra will be represented by a renewed crest and branding following a review undertaken earlier in 2016. These changes aim to strengthen the College’s public face and further reinforce our values and heritage within our branding.
The review of the crest stemmed from difficulties in reproducing and using the current crest in modern media, the existence of differing versions from different stages of history and other difficulties.
A historical review of the crest interestingly identified various changes in the crest since the College first opened in 1954. The review was able to identify approximately 8 different crests with differences in colours and detail.
When the crest refresh project began, extensive research and community engagement was undertaken to ensure that careful consideration was given to all decisions that were made relating to the crest. The renewed crest being introduced next year maintains similarities to the current crest.
Attention was paid to refining the lines and detail, removing unnecessary elements while retaining and enlarging the most identifiable elements such as the Pelican. The renewed crest also reproduces better in all modern applications such as the uniform, website, print publications and everywhere else it appears.
Together with the renewed crest, we are introducing new design elements that will be seen on publications, forms, business cards and other printed items.
We are excited about the launch of the renewed crest, it is a part of holistic changes that are being made across the College and a small part of the continuous improvements that are being made to educate boys for another 60 years and more.
