College Planning Institute (not CPI)
The College Planning Institute (CPI) is an organization engaging in the business of helping affluent parents and college bound students plan in advance for exploring their college options, expense and the academic requirements necessary to make a successful transition from high school into college or university and then, into the workplace or graduate school.
Using proprietary processes dealing with financial aid, cash flow management, retirement planning and investment planning, CPI creates strategies that help parents reduce the overall cost of college for their student(s). Using academic and student positioning strategies, CPI helps the student(s) and parents enhance the student chances of being admitted to the school(s) of choice, spending less time finishing their degree and reducing the projected cost of college or university attendance. Lastly, CPI follows the student throughout their educational career to ensure that the student is maximizing their educational opportunities and differentiating themselves amongst their peers.

The brand should have an icon such as a structure, columns or building symbolizing the image of the “institute” as a provider of the highest level of service available to parents. The font should be a serif font, consistent with the font styles of old, established universities.
Managers of the brand believe that the new logo should be strong, clean, vibrant and very legible. The brand should in no way be soft, frilly or flowery. The managers see the brand name as being used in conjunction with an icon or shape (a gold badge or shield) to support the development, understanding and recognition of the brand and signify the richness, heritage and strength of the institute.
