FACETS Branding Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in the FACETS brand. Scholarly publishing and dissemination of research is a community effort and we encourage all our partners, supporters, and advocates to use our branded assets to spread the word about FACETS. On this page you will find some guidelines to help you use our branded assets as well as information on our trademark. You will also be able to download our FACETS logo for different applications.

The FACETS logo is a trademarked logo.


Building on our multidisciplinary nature, the FACETS brand is made up of a full spectrum of colours, anchored by the “FACETS red”, represented by #631719 & #92242a, which matches the colour pallet in our standard full colour logo. The FACETS red should only be rendered as a solid colour, and should not be lightened, darkened, used as a gradient, or altered in any way when representing the FACETS brand.

Complementing the FACETS red is our full colour pallet as represented on our website and in marketing materials. Application of these colours should never be applied to the FACETS logo or material represented our brand without the direct approval of the FACETS staff.

There should always be a consistent amount of white space around the FACETS logo giving it enough room to shine and look its best. The white space is defined by the top width of the “F” as shown below in the diagram.

Best Practices

Here are a few examples of what NOT to do when using the FACETS logo:

  • Alter the colours of the logo, or add additional colours.
  • Flatten the logo and use one colour.
  • Add stylistic effects.
  • Crop, stretch, modify, or change the orientation.
  • Use the logo on a conflicting background.
