7/1/11 Fullerton, CA – Hope International University Releases New Logo
Michael Mulryan, Vice President for Institutional Advancement comments, “We are all very excited with the design and how the symbolism in the icon brings together HIU’s identity. The new university icon incorporates our unique campus architecture, symbolizes the commitment to remain and develop our main campus in Fullerton and, most importantly, clearly identifies us as a Christian university.”
The icon, pictured at right on top of the logo, is a depiction of a building roofline on the Fullerton main campus. The buildings were designed in the iconic Googie style, an architectural style first made popular in the U.S. between the 1930s and the 1960s. Over the years, the uniqueness of these buildings has become near and dear to many who consider themselves a part of the HIU community – both to staff and faculty, current students and past students.
Centered within the logo is a cross, highlighting the University’s commitment to preparing Christ-centered learners. The cross was modeled after a design by acclaimed artist and architectural sculptor, Randall E. Secrest.
“The new logo combines imagery depicting HIU’s heritage with a contemporary design reflecting the University’s status and vision of being a top-tier Christian educational institution. We have some exciting plans to merchandise, market and brand the new logo on campus, with our constituents and within the local community,” says Mulryan. “The new logo is just one of many positive events occurring in what is a wonderfully exciting time in the University’s history. With the restructuring of the five new colleges in place, construction beginning on the new student housing project south of the campus, the increase in enrollment, growing our relationship with Dongseo University and with HIU partnering in the CollegeTown development project with the City of Fullerton and CSU Fullerton, we have been truly blessed and feel the future is brighter than ever.”
The new logo was designed by Quang Nguyen of Caddis Advertising, LLC, a full-service marketing and design firm.
