With the Cannes Film Festiva ending today I’m pretty sure you’ll be seeing its logo all over the internet. However, did you know that Cannes is actually VERY strict about who can use their logo and how the logo is presented? To show how strict they are about quality control here’s a list of some of the Cannes Film Fest logo policies.
1. Using the Festival de Cannes identity is strictly reserved to the selected films and official partners.
2. All use of the palm outside of the official logotype is strictly prohibited to all parties other than the organiser and the organiser’s official publications.
3. The logotype can only be used in it’s original form, which means you cannot:
- change the typography
- remove/add any elements to the logo
- print the logo in 2 (or more) different colours
- change the proportion of the elements
- incline the logotype
4. Logotypes for different awards should be printed using the official colours (they specify the colour tones to be used!)
Though tempted to show their logo here what I’ll do is honor their policy and simply show some of their logo type restrictions. I know. I know but they didn’t say that you couldn’t show what NOT to do. I’m actually being helpful right?
