Let us know if you need our logo

When using our high-res logo we ask you to contact us first to state what you want to use our logo for, please email us at communications@ahrc.ac.uk or telephone 01793 416000. We are mainly interested to see if we can collaborate with you further.

Please tell us who you are, the organisation you represent (if any), and how and why you wish to use our logo.

How to use the logo

The AHRC's logo must be used consistently across all of our corporate materials as this helps to improve recognition of our brand. Professional designers are expected to apply these guidelines and use the logo in a clear and consistent fashion. The instructions below are for AHRC-funded students, researchers, and centres. If you are going to use our logo, please familiarise yourself with these guidelines.

Summary guidance

  • Wherever possible use the colour logo on a light plain or white background
  • Only use the reverse logo on plain dark backgrounds
  • Never overlay the logo onto a patterned or montaged background
  • Do not adjust the aspect ratio or colour of the logo
  • On a website, the smallest width for the landscape version is 175 pixels. For the portrait version the smallest width should not be less than than 100 pixels
  • Do not place logo on over complicated backgrounds or colours which weaken its legibility
  • Do not use logo as a repeat pattern, create additional borders or outlines
  • Care should be taken to give the logo clear space on all sides
  • For printed publication use an EPS version - please request us to supply you this.

Additional supporting information

When using the logo on your publications or website, if possible, please:

  • add a line such as “xxxxx is supported by" or "xxxxx is funded by" as nearby our AHRC logo as possible
  • Link the logo to our website, or have a text link nearby.

We also ask that, where appropriate, a description of the AHRC is provided to explain our function and our presence in your marketing or PR material. From our 'About us' page, this short paragraph would be suitable:

The Arts and Humanities investigate the values and beliefs which underpin both who we are as individuals and how we undertake our responsibilities to our society and to humanity globally.
