Logo and Use

Graphic Standards

The following files are available for use in publications and/or websites that require the Province of British Columbia logo and the BC Arts Council logo. All individuals and organizations receiving funding from the BC Arts Council must acknowledge the support in all promotional materials with the following logo and application taglines.

We have made it easier for you to acknowledge provincial funding support from the BC Arts Council by providing a joint file containing both the Province of British Columbia logo and the
BC Arts Council logo in a single download. Now you can be certain that you are using the current logos in all promotional materials for your funded events.

Please note that you are required to submit samples of how the logos will be used in your promotional materials.

Logo Usage

If you plan to use the files in a word processing program, such as MS Word, we recommend you download the TIFF files. If you are planning to use the files in an illustration package, such as CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator, we recommend you download the EPS files. JPG files are provided for online use.

Logo Guidelines

The logo comes with one tagline to use as part of a group of logos and on its own.

  • Avoid resizing the TIFF files, they will lose their visual integrity.
  • Do not make alterations from the original artwork, only resize them proportionally.
  • Elements from the logo may not be used separately in any form.
  • Always include the applicable tagline.
  • Colours: Type Black, Graphic PMS 179 (Red).
  • Minimum logo reproduction size is 2.5 Inches.
  • Files are available in TIFF, EPS and JPG format for the web.
