SUMMIT, NJ - Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child, for the first time in nearly three decades, has debuted a rebranded visual identity of its athletics program. The integrated sports rebranding is part of an effort to bring athletics more in line with the school’s “Faith, Wisdom, Service” crest that was launched in the summer of 2015, and includes a new main logo, a diagonal 'OKS' monogram, as well as a spirit logo of a lioness – the school’s mascot.
Oak Knoll Head of School Timothy J. Saburn unveiled the new branding in advance of the school's April Homecoming.
“We wanted a design that captured the attributes of an Oak Knoll Royal: she is strong, she is virtuous and she is regal,” Saburn said of the new branding, the first since the school adopted the Royals’ name in 1988.
Saburn also praised Margo Ganton ’17, of Verona, who created the new logos and worked with Oak Knoll administrators and staff, spending months of planning and designing.
“Margo’s impeccable design accurately reflects the spirit of athletics at Oak Knoll. It is truly impressive,” Saburn said. “I want to personally thank Margo for her graphic design and branding expertise. Her tireless efforts included hours of research, strategy and design.
“We are so lucky to have such talented, dedicated and inspirational members of our community. We are truly grateful for her help,” Saburn added.
