In August 2018, KGI launched its new brand platform that included a redesigned logo to better reflect the Institute’s vision. The KGI “Hexagon” connects innovation and collaboration to create career pathways within healthcare and the applied life sciences.

A brand site was created to provide the KGI community with a background on the rebranding process. The brand site also includes KGI’s style guidelines, editorial guidelines, and templates.


Within the area of Institutional Development, the staff members in advancement, marketing, and communications are inspired every day by the innovation taking place among our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
