IFC’s brand guidelines and design templates are essential tools for creating content that projects IFC’s brand.

Comprising the essential elements of our visual identity system, they cover critical needs for publications and other corporate content and marketing material.

Publications Templates

Tiered System

IFC’s templates offer a distinct look for each type of external publication. They use the same common elements in different proportions to ensure visual hierarchy and coherency of our titles. Please contact Irina Sarchenko for specific guidance on template application.

Fact Sheets and One-Page Templates

Fact sheet and one-page documents can have a variety of uses. Often finished versions are saved as PDFs and made accessible on a product-specific website. Additionally, these one-pagers can be paired with a publication to create a suite of branded collateral.

Brochure Templates

These templates provide cover options and layouts to use in creating a brochure. You may use the designs provided as-is, or use the templates to create a new cover design and interior layout. Please refer to page 33-36 of the “Corporate Content & Marketing Materials” section in the Brand Guidelines for more information.

Banner Templates

Branded templates help you design and produce banners and posters with a standardized IFC look and feel. The Adobe InDesign files are easily manipulated by a design or print vendor and include the use of essentials such as IFC logo placement and color palette choices while still leaving room for creativity and style in the design of region- and industry-specific marketing materials.

At the bottom of each banner file are five inches of space that allow for a one-inch bleed and four inches of blank space (where the banner tucks into the metal base). This must be accounted for on all retractable banner layouts.

One is for standard, multipurpose use, using the white vertical IFC logo in a step and repeat pattern.  Another version features a map background behind the logo. An additional event-specific version is also available that can be customized, allowing an event’s name and client/partner cobranding to be added as needed. Sizing can be adjusted to meet the needs of local manufacturers.
