“Success Story #1: Improving Retention Through School Spirit”
Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD) faced the same challenges that all large urban school systems with poverty and language barriers do: poor connectivity and low graduation rates. The Superintendent and his school leaders wanted to develop a multi-level solution to improve student education, connection, and graduation rates. Aside from implementing new educational systems, the high schools were also looking for other complementary programs to help increase the student retention and give them a strong feeling of belonging.
In 2010, LBUSD worked alongside VIP Branding to explore educational solutions for their community. The VIP Branding team went to work and created exciting new branding, an amazing new online shop, and provided campus improvement materials that resonated with the students, staff, and community.

“Success Story #2: Rebranding an Entire District”
Bear Valley Unified School District (BVUSD) serves 7 schools and each school logo lacked one thing – unity. With outdated logos and an outdated brand identity, BVUSD wanted to update its websites and took the initiative to turn to VIP Branding to rebrand. The logos showed no consistency until we created a new and improved brand identity for the district. By focusing on each school, we were able to incorporate a design for the logos that displayed uniformity while keeping the individuality that each school possessed. The elementary schools received mascots that were more youthful and the middle school and high schools received mascots that contained a more mature nature to resemble the attitude of its students.

Rancho Christian Schools Temecula, California
“Success Story #3: Unifying the School Brand”
Rancho Christian like many schools across the nation were faced with a common issue – the lack of brand control. Schools may have variety of styles to show of one mascot, and the brand identity of the school can get lost with every new version. The importance of unifying a mascot or logo, brings together the school and students to take pride in what the logo represents for their school.
Rancho Christian recognized the importance of brand control in order to establish a unique identity for their school. Their new brand identity can now provide instant brand recognition within their school and community. Students can buy from their own branded school store, and can choose from a large selection of school branded fashion apparel to sport their school pride.

Bishop Montgomery HS
“Success Story #4: Unique Identity”
VIP Branding redesigned Bishop Montgomery High Schools logo, giving an updated style and unique brand identity. The Knight mascot was designed to represent nobility and even the way the sword is held is intentional. The sword is tip down and provides a secondary purpose as a cross to represent their spirituality. The sleek new design gives the school and the students something to be proud of.
The use of an elegant timeless font and a mascot that is stately, confident and honorable projects the new brand image of Bishop Montgomery High School.
