OTC Alma Campus Hosts Coastal Pines Technical College Logo Reveal Celebration

Smiles, laughter, and warm greetings were exchanged as faculty, staff, students, and community guests gathered in the courtyard of the Okefenokee Technical College (OTC) Alma Campus to witness the unveiling of the new logos for Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC). On July 1, 2014, Okefenokee Technical College and Altamaha Technical College will be officially one college and begin using the CPTC name and signature marks.

Cindy Tanner, OTC Director of Public Relations and Information, welcomed everyone to the event and introduced Jack Johnson, OTC Board Director. Johnson began his remarks by stating that the merger will benefit students and the community. He went on to say that he likes the logos and is excited about the changes and opportunities that are soon to follow.

“The decisions that have been made regarding the merger, including the logos, were made with the students in mind, ” said Johnson. He went on to say, “Coastal Pines will serve thirteen counties: Appling, Bacon, Brantley, Camden, Charlton, Clinch, Glynn, Jeff Davis, Long, McIntosh, Pierce, Ware, and Wayne. In closing, Johnson said, “I appreciate the leadership that Dr. Deibert and the OTC staff have provided throughout this merger. I am glad that Dr. Deibert will be leading the charge as the first president of CPTC.”

Dr. Glenn Deibert, OTC president, then addressed the group about the logos. He said, “Determining a brand identify for Coastal Pines Technical College was challenging. The two-month process to create two logos involved a design and marketing agency, h20 creativegroup; a committee of OTC and ATC staff; and input from faculty, other staff, students, and board members." Deibert thanked all those who contributed to the process.

When Dr. Deibert gave the signal, OTC staff members dropped one of the two banners hanging in the courtyard to reveal the CPTC academic logo. Dr. Deibert explained: “The CPTC academic logo is a two-color mark with a bold, Greek style building symbolizing the great halls of learning. Emanating from behind the building are ten rays of light symbolizing a coastal sunrise, the dawning of a new day, the light of knowledge, and the completion of a cycle. The rays also symbolize the many paths students take after graduation and the options available to them.”

In describing the colors, Dr. Deibert said, “The first color in the mark, blue, represents the coastline and the ocean. Blue is often associated with stability and symbolizes loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, and truth. The second color, green, depicts the vast landscape of the thirteen CPTC counties. Green symbolizes life, nature, well-being, growth, learning, and harmony, all appropriate because of the farms, forests, rivers, and swamp land that define our habitat in Southeast Georgia.” “The swirl in the top of the C represents movement, as in the waves of the ocean, and is indicative of the desire of CPTC to respond to the workforce needs of business and industry. And just as every wave is different, so is each business and each student.”

“Finally,” he said, the overall image represents the attributes that we envision for the merged college: quality, tradition, growth, success, and value.”

Next, the spirit logo was presented when the second banner was dropped. The spirit logo will be used on all t-shirts, hats, and other swag for the student population. Dr. Deibert explained, “The spirit logo is also a two color mark with the coastal blue and inland green, bearing the shape of a familiar predator, the stingray. The stingray is smart, agile, and blends well into its environment.” He continued, “We hope that somewhere down the road, the logo would be used when we can offer athletics like golf or tennis at our schools.” Guests enjoyed beach music and refreshments. Everyone present received sunglasses, t-shirts, visors, and Frisbees bearing the new spirit logo and were invited to visit a webpage to view a video about the CPTC logos:
