UKC is pleased to share a fresh look with our community! New branding, including a new logo set, will be rolled out gradually over the coming weeks. The first and most noticeable change has been UKC's website, with social media platforms soon to follow.
UKC's brand has continued to evolve since 1898 to encompass a dedicated and diverse community of participants and their dogs, who pursue everything from conformation to coon hunting. Prior to this project, the most recent UKC rebranding took place in the fall of 2015. The next step forward for the UKC brand in late 2019 is a distinct look with the flexibility to provide a comprehensive identity for the multiple disciplines UKC customers are passionate about.
In conjunction with the main UKC logo, both event-specific departments continue to embrace unique lifestyles and have earned their own unmistakable looks. Each segment now has its own identifying logo and social media pages. The department logos represent UKC's valued communities of people and dogs. These existing segments offer exclusive services and opportunities while still operating under and maintaining a connection with the main UKC brand.
Bold. Unwavering. Proud. These are traits of the UKC community. The new UKC look represents these values.
UKC Main Logo. The primary logo of UKC is a shield crest to denote historical significance and storied distinction. Firm lines and a prominent shape are indicative of unwavering stability, creating a welcoming banner for a widespread and loyal community of dogs and humans. Owners and handlers value the enjoyment of participating in a community that protects and showcases dogs that do more.
UKC All-Breed Sports. This department was formerly known as UKC Show Operations. The new name pays tribute to the many activities offered and the action-oriented foundation of these pursuits. All-Breed Sports as a logo is represented by a dog in action, paired with a rich color jumping forward to welcome people and their dogs into this passionate lifestyle.
