Open College of the Arts
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The Open College of the Arts sell flexible distance learning BA and MA degrees in creative arts and design subjects to both young and mature audiences around the world via both traditional and online methods. We've just celebrated our 30th anniversary and have also recently become part of the University for the Creative Arts (UCA). We have a district identity from the University, having a very different market to them, but our logo ideally needs to be able to sit alongside theirs more harmoniously than at present. We can do what we like with our own OCA logo, but can't modify UCA's. We accept we may need to move their logo to somewhere less prominent than the page headers, but we will still be required to feature UCA's logo quite prominently in all our marketing materials.

Our website is at http://www.oca.ac.uk - the issue we have with our logo sitting alongside our parent university's can be seen on there. The logos attached are a combination of our own logo (in red) next to UCA's (in black). I've also included our logo as it was prior to our merger with UCA; with our name in red next to the 'A' logo. We may need to move UCA's logo from the banner to achieve a well designed logo for the college.
