Downloading the logo

The logos are supplied in two formats: EPS and JPEG.

EPS files are Adobe Illustrator vector based files that can be scaled to any size without loss of resolution. They are not intended for use on your desktop computer and can only be opened using specialist software on a Mac or PC. British Council PCs do not have this software installed, so EPS files cannot be opened on our PCs.

JPEG files should not be used for professional printing, but should be used in Microsoft office applications such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint, and for digital applications such as web pages and web banners. A negative (white) version of JPEG cannot be used on a coloured background, so we have provided a transparent PNG logo file instead.

If your designer asks for the logo as a GIF, please contact the Brand Team who will be able to provide you with the correct files.

If you have any issues opening or using the logo files provided, please contact the Brand Team for assistance.
