This art will be an "academic college seal" on their diplomas so we want it to to look sharp, academic, and official.
We want a round "academic college seal" that will be used on our student's graduation diplomas. We want it to look sharp, academic, and official. Our student/clients/future customers should feel proud to have a diploma hanging in their office with this "college seal" on it.
We want it to look traditional and formal.
It should be based on our current logo but incorporated into a round, circular seal. We want to use the Latin version of our institute's name, which is: Novum Institutum Sancti Thomae. If used in small caps, it should be: NOVVM INSTITVTVM SANCTI THOMAE (the u's being replaced by v's).
Our Latin motto is: Non Alligabis Os Bovi.
Our mascot is the Muskox.
We don't just want our current logo placed in a circle. We want the "NSTI academic seal" to look different but also evoke the "NSTI shield logo."
