SAIT brand character
Our new brand identity captures the character attributes we want to reinforce in the SAIT experience:
- full of energy
- active and vibrant
- warm and welcoming
- dynamic, responsive and adaptable
- strong, confident and proud
The SAIT identity story
Our new logo is a powerful emblem of SAIT's unique community and learning experiences. Each element of the identity is embedded with meaning:
Our "Catalyst" symbol
The emblem in the SAIT logo is called the Catalyst - an activator of change. SAIT's symbol is forged by five s-shaped connectors representing the people and relationships that define us:
- faculty and staff
- employers and partners
- the diverse communities we serve
As the connectors weave together, they create a series of interlocking infinity symbols that reflect the breadth of our offerings and the world of opportunities SAIT enables.
The star that emerges at the heart of our Catalyst expresses our passion for excellence, as professionals and as a community.
SAIT's international outlook and global collaborations are echoed in the spherical shape of our symbol.
SAIT red and blue are defining elements of SAIT's heritage. We've complemented our heritage colours with more energizing hues to reflect our diversity, adaptability and innovation.
Modern, bold typography energizes our visual expression. Details count. The SAIT wordmark includes proprietary detailing on the upward stroke on the letter "A" to project our future-forward attitudes.
We are a one-of-a-kind home for shapers, makers and groundbreaking originals. Ever-evolving, dynamic and flexible — all the elements of SAIT's visual identity system help express our character and bring our brand story to life in exciting, vibrant ways.
Requesting the SAIT logo
The SAIT logo will be officially trademarked to protect its image and usage. Due to trademark specifications and the need to uphold our logo's image, third parties must request the logo through the Marketing department.
To acquire a Trademark License Agreement (TLA) request form, contact the department at 403.774.4645. Once completed, the form can be returned to the department by fax at 403.284.8884 or by email as a scanned PDF. The logo cannot be released until the completed TLA form has been received.
