The image above indicates how our banners look.

If you are considering producing a banner, first read about the print and design process and then either:

  • Commission a poster by completing the design request form
  • Use a template (if you are a graphic designer) and then send it to Marketing or PR for approval

Note that where banners are created for wayfinding purposes, the Estates department must be consulted.

We have developed a set of templates for staff with graphic design skills to use to put together frequently produced items. Please read the brand guidelines before you start designing to ensure that your work is consistent with all of our other communications. The graphic designers the Marketing team uses also enjoy creative freedom when it comes to creating eye-catching materials but will always adhere to our guidelines.

Any design concept may be considered, as long as the guidelines and the design and production processes (including the requirements for approval from Marketing or PR) are followed.
