Style Guide This guide has been created to help you design brochures, flyers, posters and other visual materials for any GEF Small Grants Programme country office, while maintaining a consistent, signature SGP style. This signature style will help people recognize and distinguish SGP’s materials from those of similar organizations and to brand SGP with a distinctive and cohesive look.

To start, remember to follow SGP style guidelines in placing the GEF and UNDP logos in a horizontal bar at the top of the publication’s cover, with the GEF logo to the left of the UNDP logo. Please also note that when referring to the programme using the acronym it should be SGP or GEF SGP not UNDP GEF/SGP, UNDP/GEF/SGP or GEF/SGP.

In this document and on this disk you will find the tools for designing with the Small Grants Programme’s brand identity: • the SGP Monogram, • the SGP colors, • Impact and Trebuchet,the recommended font families. • Templates

Style Guide

SGP positioned on its side, and the wording “The GEF Small Grants Programme� written out. These two elements are provided in a set relationship in the enclosed digital files. Redrawing or respacing the SGP Monogram is not recommended. The recommended colored backgrounds to place the SGP Monogram on are white and SGP Yellow (see SGP Colors section). Because the GEF Small Grants Programme has many country offices, the Monogram has been designed to accommodate many languages.While the Monogram ought to remain the same, the wording may be translated. Whatever the language, however,try to keep the wording in three or four horizontal lines in the space to the right of the Monogram. There may be some cases for which you may feel it appropriate to use the SGP Monogram on its own. A digital file, called SGPMonogram, has been provided for this purpose. The following files are provided on this disk: SGP Style Guide in QuarkXPress 6.5 (Mac), PDF, and MS Word formats Template files (see page 5) in QuarkXPress 6.5 (Mac) format SGPLogo (English, French, Spanish) in eps format GEF Logo (English, French, Spanish) in eps format SGPMonogram in eps format UN logo in eps format Impact and Trebuchet fonts

Words and Pictures Words All text should be laid out horizontally (not vertically, at an angle, or on a curve). To optimize legibility, try to avoid laying out large bodies of text on dark backgrounds. For use with major heading or titles, the font “Impact” has been included on this disc. For body copy, the font “Trebuchet” is also included. To distinguish sub-headings, captions, sidebards or quotations from regular body copy, the bold and italic features of Trebuchet may be used.

Pictures

Style Guide

In general, for the best results, try to supply images to the printer in one of the following formats. Consult your printer for their specific requirements. Slides: 35mm or larger format tranparencies Photographs: High-quality photographic prints or 35mm negatives. Digital Files: High-resolution (300dpi or greater) TIFF files, or vector-based eps files for type and line art. Also remember to obtain permission before using a photograph or illustration that does not belong to the UN, provide descriptive image captions, and credit the photographer whenever possible.

Paper To lessen the impact on the environment, try to produce printed materials on high-quality uncoated or matte-coated recycled paper with a minimum of 50% post-consumer content, and try to avoid printing on glossy or shiny paper.
