SIGBI Logo & Brand

In this section of the website you should be able to find everything you need to apply the SIGBI “brand” or “corporate identity” to any promotional materials across the Federation. This corporate identity was adopted by the Federation in February 2012. The document “Brand Guidelines”, “Branding Protocol” and associated artwork are available to download. The Brand Guidelines and artwork have been produced by the professional design company Fabrik Brands and provide all the information you and professional printers will need to ensure our new brand is presented in the best possible format on all promotional materials. If you have any queries or need assistance please contact Sally Higgins at Federation Office

This “Brand Guidelines” document demonstrates the SIGBI “brand” or “corporate identity”. It offers advice on how and when the logo should be used, how it should be presented and the use of typefaces/fonts and colours (pages 21-28).  It is important that these guidelines are adhered to, to strengthen SIGBI’s brand image.  The guidelines also offer advice on when and how to use “The Lady” emblem. We advise you to download and save the document as reference material for when you want to use the new corporate identity. It can be emailed to any designers you are using to produce promotional materials.

The artwork and documents are available to download from the pages shown on the left of your screen – Logos, Emblem, Document Templates and Examples and Banners. A template for PowerPoint presentations, and examples of how Clubs may use the logo in their Word documents are provided on the Document Templates and Examples page.  These are in Word so that you can download and edit them for your own purposes.
