One role of the office of Marketing and Public relations is to manage the Northeast Texas Community College brand. This involves making sure that any message being delivered regarding NTCC utilizes the appropriate logo, typefaces, colors, etc.
We understand that it is occasionally necessary to design marketing materials within your department. This section of our website is here to help you understand NTCC's marketing guidelines so that you can produce these items in a manner that will look professional and consistent to the brand.
Below, you will find a downloadable PDF of our official branding guidelines. This gives you specific information on how to use the logo and/or “focused” brand on marketing materials.
In addition to the branding guidelines, you will also find various versions of the logo below for download. Remember, it is your responsibility to make sure that materials you produce meet with college brand standards.
Don't forget that all printed material that will be distributed outside of the NTCC campus must be approved through the office of Marketing and Public Relations. Please e-mail your files to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any logo variation that deviates from the approved branding guidelines should be submitted to the vice president in charge of the department making the request for cabinet-level approval.

Employees who wish to utilize social media for marketing purposes must obtain written permission from their supervisor and the Director of Marketing and Public Relations before creating an online presence for a college-related program or organization. A clear purpose, audience, and strategy should be defined and the social media outlet should be chosen accordingly (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc). Once a social network presence has been created, the Director of Marketing and Public Relations and the program director or direct supervisor must be given full administrative privileges or passwords to the page and/or site. In the case of Facebook, the creator of the page will be removed as a full administrator and will be assigned editing privileges (ability to make changes, but not create/delete administrators). Other page editors/users may be added by the Director of Marketing and Public Relations or program director/supervisor if necessary.
If any content is deemed inappropriate, it may be removed at the discretion of the program director/supervisor or the Director of Marketing and Public Relations. Employees will be held personally responsible for items published on social media and all posts should reflect the professional standards of NTCC and be relevant to the intended audience.
Please submit the social media request form to your supervisor prior to creating a social media presence for your department. Your supervisor should forward the completed form along with an e-mail indicating their approval to email@example.com

Employee Name Tags
Officially branded nametags are available for purchase through the College Store. These nametags shall include the first and last name of the employee. In addition, employees who would like to include academic honorary titles or credentials on their nametag may do so with confirmation by Human Resources (ex. Dr. John Doe or Jane Doe, R.N.). Job titles will not be used on nametags unless specifically required for accreditation or other official reasons to be determined on a case-by-case basis.
NTCC adopted a new logo in spring 2014 (see branding guidelines). This logo should be used on all new branded materials purchased beginning immediately. Branded items with the old “Northeast T” logo may still be used until supplies run out, but plans should be made to reorder in a timely fashion. The branding guidelines should be followed for all usage of the college logo. Anyone wishing to use a variation of the logo not included in the branding guidelines should present requests to his or her cabinet-level supervisor for consideration by cabinet.
It is very important that this logo be used properly and consistently in order to maintain and strengthen the brand of the college. The following logos are approved for use by official representatives of NTCC on printed materials and other items. Outside vendors or parties wishing to use the official NTCC logo should contact the marketing office at 903-434-8114 or firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain permission.
