A-size documents

Listed below are the details needed when creating standard A-size documents, posters, etc. These rules are set and should be followed at all times. All other content for your design should sit below the identity band if used, and follow the minimum clear space guidance around the logo if it is placed in the bottom right corner.

Always use a black or white version of the logo, in the .eps (vector) format, for optimum quality.

Back covers

The logo should appear on the back of all documents at 35mm wide. Below the logo should be the University address, telephone number and web address. It is optional to include the date published.

All text should be set in Trade Gothic Medium at 8, 9 or 10pt, depending on space available and document size. The name of the document issuer (eg faculty/ school etc) can appear aligned left at the base of the cover as shown but is not necessary.

If space (or lack of it) necessitates the use of text and images on the back cover, please leave clear space at the foot of the back cover to aid legibility of the address and owner information. The use of a rule or a band to indicate this area is optional.

The same guidance applies on the occasions when a wraparound image (visible on the front and back cover) is used.

Please do not credit the designer on the back page or anywhere else on a printed publication.
