The design of the logo of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference has been inspired by the image of the sun as it appears in winter. While the sun is definitely present on the emblem, it is pretty transparent and light, it does not dominate the design. Its light is gentle and muted. It is far from the intense heat radiated by the tropical sun.

The acronym “NSIC” features blue and green. The two colors merge, while the border between them is blurred. The text “Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference” below is given in green.

Font and color

The bold and dark logo of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference is composed of the NSIC abbreviation, and sometimes a tagline, written under the solid separation line.

The NSIC part of the lettering is set in an extra-bold sans-serif typeface, with the capital letters slightly slanted to the right. The closest font to the one used in the visual identity of the intercollegiate conference is Humanist 521 Std Ultra Bold, or Gill Sans UltraBold.

As for the color palette of the emblem, it uses green and yellow gradients, with green shades prevailing, and the letters becoming blue to their top. Green is the color of health and growth, which goes very well with the sporting orientation of the organization, while blue stands for professionalism and stability. Yellow here is for the graphical accent, as it is used only on the stylized sun, which replaces the dot above the bold green and blue letter “I”.
