The updated logo, featuring the Edmonds CC trident, will replace the classic “E” logo, which has been used for almost 30 years.

“Our new logo and look captures the values and mission of the college in a distinctive and memorable way,” said Dr. Jean Hernandez, Edmonds CC President. “I am excited for our new brand to carry the mission and work of the college forward as we celebrate 50 years of student success.”

The logo design comes from Red Rokk, Inc. of Bellingham, which facilitated the college’s rebranding process using campus and community input through surveys and focus groups. It will be used on all college materials, including diplomas, stationery, flash drives, T-shirts, EdPasses, and more. It also will be featured on key campus signage and all digital and print media.

The Triton Mascot also has a new look in hues of blue. It features Triton, the mythological Greek sea god, inside of a powerful shield and proudly wearing the trident on his crown. He is modern, fierce and looks his competitors in the eyes.

The Edmonds CC Tritons Athletics logo will incorporate a variation of “The Trident” with a custom typeface, called “Tritones,” that was created exclusively for Edmonds CC Athletics. An athletic “E” logo also was created for the college’s baseball and softball teams.

The college is in the midst of a soft launch of the new brand this summer and will be rolling it out this fall and throughout the commemorative school year.

Everyone is invited to attend the Edmonds CC 50th Anniversary Kickoff event at 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16, on Triton Field. Enjoy live music from local bands and food truck fare with a no-host beer and wine garden.
