Exciting news, we are near the end of the mascot re-branding process. After working successfully with the Grand Ronde Tribal Council to keep the “Braves” name, we have had an imagery re-design. With the help of Nike, we are near the finish line with the process. As part of the process, we will trademark our new designs. That will not limit anybody from having access to the digital templates, but will require businesses and people wanting to use the imagery to follow the designated designs that were developed by the Nike Graphic Identity Group. In order to have access to the digital imagery for use, we are putting a process in place for businesses and/or people to follow. Again, this is not to limit the use, but to protect all of the hard work that the Banks School District, Grand Ronde Tribal Council, and the Nike Graphic Identity Group has put in over the past year and a half. We cannot have people editing or changing the imagery in any way. This would be a violation of the agreement approved by the State Board of Education, the trademark, and will not be permitted.
Here is a summary of the process:
We will keep the community informed and meet with businesses who are requesting access to the new imagery. We will continue to work on finalizing the process, but want to make sure that the process is complete before releasing the digital imagery to our Banks School District supporters.
Thank you for your patience in this process,
