Branding & Recruitment



Outdated branding and vacant marketing postion

Ohlone College’s brand was old and tired and didn’t truly reflect the college’s changing environment or growth. In addition, Ohlone’s marketing director was relocated and they were in need of marketing services. Ohlone contracted with 25th Hour Communications to create a new brand including a logo, tagline and roll-out plan, and to lead their marketing department until a new director was hired.
