Logo guidelines

Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with our guidelines for the logo.

For print

For print, the minimum size is 25mm width.

  • If you are working in graphic design software like Illustrator or InDesign, use the EPS logo.
  • If you are working in other programmes like Word or PowerPoint, use the PNG logo.

For screen or web

  • For web, the minimum size is 320px wide.
  • Use the PNG logo.

Remember to provide plenty of space around the logo. Use the padding that comes with logo, give it the chance to breathe and not feel cluttered.
