Brand guidelines


Certificates are used for a number of different reasons, from acknowledgement of attendance at an event or workshop, to successful completion of a course. Dependent on the need they can be simple laser printed certificates or more prestigious certificates that are printed on high quality papers with elaborate printing techniques. The recipient’s name and award on these prestigious certificates are often written by commissioned calligraphic artists. The quality of these types of certificate often result in them being framed and displayed prominently.

Think carefully about the level of certification, as a customer who has achieved an excellent qualification in an expensive or prestigious subject will be disappointed if awarded a cheap photocopied certificate.

The British Council logo can be centred on certificates if required.

Promotional toolkit artwork templates are available for certificates, which can help to keep your design costs down for basic certificates.
