Chowan University Unveils New Visual Identity

Chowan University announced a new branding strategy this week, marking the most significant change to its visual identity in more than a decade.

Designed by Chris Stagl, Associate Professor of Graphic Design, the official launch of the new logo is scheduled for January 1, 2018.

The new logo honors Chowan's Christian heritage while incorporating everyone's favorite campus icon, McDowell Columns Hall.

With the new logo, the seal will be reserved for more exclusive instances like diplomas, official documents, and formal programs.
