Update on the Release of the New Archdiocesan Logo
New York, NY -- The new logo of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America
was officially launched in January of 2003 and was debuted on the cover of
the 2003 Yearbook and in the January issue of the Orthodox Observer.
Since that time, the Archdiocese has been working steadily towards its
implementation, a collaborative process that involves the various levels
of its metropolises, archdiocesan offices, institutions, and parishes
Already, the Archdiocese is sending out camera-ready digital files of the
new Archdiocesan seal and new stationery templates to each of its
metropolises. A detailed Graphic Standards Manual (GSM) outlining the
proper usage and implementation of the Archdiocesan seal has accompanied
this mailing, offering a uniform and consistent presentation to each
metropolis throughout the Archdiocese.
Next, the Archdiocesan departments will be provided with digital files of
the new logo, new stationery, and usage guidelines in order to address
their specific needs.
By late April or early May, the Archdiocese will be sending an
introductory kit of camera-ready digital files of the new Archdiocesan
seal to parishes. This introductory kit will contain:
-A detailed Graphics Standards Manual (GSM) outlining the proper usage and
implementation of the Archdiocesan seal. There will be a separate GSM
produced for parishes, institutions, and organizations that will be
tailored to the unique needs of each.
-A CD-ROM containing camera-ready copies of the Archdiocesan seal and the
approved versions of the Archdiocesan seal, including black and white,
2-color, 4-color, etc.
-Licensed Macintosh and Windows fonts to compliment letterhead and other
materials bearing the new logo
-Templates of parish letterhead
-Templates of parish business cards
-A new Archdiocesan flag with the new logo of the Archdiocese.
Until this introductory kit is received, parishes are not to use the new
logo and are asked to continue to use the previous Archdiocesan logo. If
any printing of letterhead or other parish material is needed prior to
this kit's arrival, parishes are instructed to use the old logo. The full
implementation of the logo allows for a period of overlap and a phase-out
period to the end of 2003 for stationery and other printed materials
bearing the old logo. Archdiocesan institutions and organizations will
receive introductory materials by June.
