Branding guidelines

Which logo should I use?

Branding is a key mechanism for enhancing the visibility of the activities and initiatives of the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR). Correct branding maximises recognition of the role of the Australian Government and ACIAR.

These guidelines help ACIAR staff and stakeholders ensure the ACIAR brand is applied consistently across all official communications materials and documents. In brief:

  • use the crest on all communications for Australian audiences.
  • use the ACIAR identifier on all products made specifically for international audiences.

File format quick guide

The PNG files below are low-resolution and a small file size. They are best for office documents, websites and screen displays. The EPS files are vector images and can print at high-resolution. They are best for professional graphic design and print production. You may not be able to open these files on your computer unless you have the required software.

  • Reports or publications made in Microsoft Word or Publisher should use the PNG files.
  • PowerPoint or other presentations should use the PNG files.
  • Reports and publications made in Adobe InDesign or other professional publishing software should use the EPS files.

ACIAR crest

The official logo is the ACIAR crest. It should be used for all communications to Australian audience.

The ACIAR crest is provided in two ways, ACIAR crest inline and ACIAR crest stacked, and is provided in black, green and white. No other colours are allowed in the depiction of the crest.

The ACIAR crest can be used:

  • black against a white background
  • white against a dark background
  • green against a light background.

The ACIAR crest should not be altered in any way or used over an image.

See the Australian Government Branding Guidelines for more information on correct usage of the ACIAR crest.
