Used alongside the IFC Strategic Brand Guidelines & Graphic Standards, these branded templates help you design and produce marketing material and publications with an updated IFC look and feel. They cover most major print communications needs—setting terms for the use of essentials such as the IFC logo and arcs, cover design, fonts, colors, word counts, and co-branding elements while still leaving room for individual creativity and style in design of specific publications and other communications material.
Templates are available for download as ZIP archived folders. Each folder contains EITHER a Word template with a PDF example OR an InDesign template with links and a PDF example.
Files follow a specific naming convention: [SIZE]_[2Color or 4Color]_[Description]_[InDesign or Word].zip
In each .zip file below, several cover design styles are available. You may use the cover layouts provided here as-is, or you may use the templates to create a new cover design. Please refer to the “Cover Design Elements” subsection in the Brand Guidelines for more information.
The Cover 1 templates have several layout variations to meet the needs of specific marketing and communications content while upholding the IFC corporate brand.
The Cover 2 templates are intended for use for knowledge management products, manuals, user guides, or for other IFC publications that may prefer a look that is distinguished from marketing and communications material, and/or are being updated to meet the latest IFC branding guidelines. Incorporating color in the background will allow for a smooth transition from the established series to the refreshed IFC brand.
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 while still leaving room for creativity and style in the design of regional and industry-specific marketing materials.
Certain elements of the templates have been locked – such as the tagline text, and the IFC logo placement and rule – and should not be manipulated. At the bottom of each banner are five inches of white that allows 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.
Additionally, some corporate banners contain the Creating Opportunity campaign text image, but others do not, and both can also be “regionalized” by applying region-specific photos and languages into the same template. Borrowing Banners for Use at Events & Signings: Banners with current images and messaging are available to be borrowed temporarily for events held at IFC headquarters. To borrow a banner, contact the External & Corporate Relations Assistant Desk at ext. 35773. Please provide at least 24 hours’ notice.
