Charter of use of the visual identity of Inria

Changed on 12/12/2019

Find the different formats of the Inria logo, in addition to the rules governing their use.

Logo: usage, formats

The red version is to be the preferred option. The blue-grey and black versions should only be used in situations where the use of colour is not possible (e.g. black and white documents, silkscreen printing, etc.).

The protected area is important : this determines the space in which nothing else should be placed (illustrations, text, graphics or other logos). This corresponds to the height of the letter “n” on the logo.

In order to ensure that the Inria logo is visible, the minimum usage size is a width of 10 mm, or 45 pixels.

  1. change the colours
