MRC Festival visual identity

The MRC Festival visual identity and templates have been developed for use at MRC Festival events/activities or to promote MRC Festival events/activities.

MRC establishments are not expected to produce dedicated MRC Festival pop up banners or MRC Festival giveaways, as these could only be used during the MRC Festival period each year.

Also see our overarching branding guidelines.

If you have any questions please contact your Partnership Communications Manager.
