AAMC unveils new logo

No comments

The Alumnae Association of Mills College (AAMC) introduced its brand new logo at Commencement in June. This emblem was created pro bono by Alex Wright, a designer with an abiding connection to Mills College. His father, Jim Wright, was the head of the Theater Department for many years, and his mother, Kennedy Golden, worked for Mills for more than 40 years, last serving in the Office of Student Life as associate dean. He even met and married his wife, AAMC governor Cherlene Sprague Wright ’92, on the Mills campus! When asked about the symbolism of the eucalyptus leaf, Alex Wright noted that it “engages all the senses: the smell as you enter the gate, the sight of the trees as you wander through campus, and the sound of the wind in the leaves.” In the AAMC logo, this iconic symbol of Mills combines with the classic “M” of the College’s logo. Together with the contemporary font used for the AAMC name, these elements evoke both the independence of the AAMC and its renewed collaboration with the College. At Commencement, we also unveiled new T-shirts and window cling decals sporting the logo.
