HOW TO USE THE
SIGMA IOTA ALPHA
MAIN LOGO CONSTRUCTION
This Sigma Iota Alpha first logo is the cornerstone of the sorority's brand. It is one of the most valuable and visible assets. Due to this, there must be proper usage of the logo. The logo consists of the full name, "Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha Incorporada" along with the SIA icon.
The SIA Icon consists of the pegasus wings, unicorn's head, rose, as well as four curved lines which represent the 4 founding schools of the sorority.
The color combination can only be used as displayed; gold wings, red rose, white unicorn, 2 royal blue lines, 2 black lines. When the logo is being presented on a dark background, the black words and lines become white and the unicorn becomes a solid white.
Variations of the logo are provided for versatility and can be used as seen fit. A stacked version, circular version, and horizontal version.
Spacing around the logo should be the length of the bottom black curved line that is right underneath he unicorn.
LETTERED LOGO CONSTRUCTION
The lettered version of the SIA logo can be used wherever Greek letters are preferred to be visible. Some campuses prefer to stay away from Greek lettered organizations, and that is when the main logo as opposed to the Greek lettered version can be used.
BLACK & WHITE LOGOS
The black and white versions of the logos are to be used when only one color is applicable for the medium (ie. engraving an award, getting a stamp made, metal or frosted signage for the headquarters, etc.)
DO NOT alter the logo in any way.
Squish the logo.
Stretch the logo.
Change the order of the logo.
Change logo's orientation.
Switch colors around.
Separate the typography.
Change the font.
Use different colors.
This goes for every version of the logo.
Proper font usage allows for legibility for all organization documents including flyers and presentations.
The logo uses the Axia font family. Axia must be used for all titles, headlines and subheadings.
Futura should be used for body/paragraph text.
Whenever the Greek letters need to be displayed, use the Greek Caps font.
The colors that represent the sorority's brand are valuable assets. Ensure the proper colors are used at all times to create a unified brand.
The colors consist of three primary colors (red, gold, and royal blue), and two secondary colors (black and white).
Primary colors should be used on all public documents and images such as letterheads, flyers, and presentations.
