If you have any questions regarding the CLARIN design style please contact our External Relations Officer by email.
Please refer to the overview of logos to find a version in a suitable format and resolution.
The colour of the logo is always dark blue, if possible, otherwise black or white is used.
The logo can be used with or without the subtitle. The subtitle reads “Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure”.
'Contribution to CLARIN' logo
The ‘Contribution to CLARIN’ logo can be used to put your contribution to CLARIN, such as web applications (e.g. processing tools & concordancers) and repositories and related pages (e.g. depositing)
The typefaces to be used within the CLARIN identity are 'Source Sans Pro' and 'Roboto Slab'.
'Roboto Slab' can be used for ‘streamers’ ( 'blockquotes' ) or ‘subheads’.
These typefaces are for online (web) and offline (print) use.
When chances are high that the computer used for editing does not have these fonts installed, 'Calibri' should be used as a replacement (e.g. in Word and Powerpoint).
The following table provides information on obtaining or embedding these fonts:

5. Word documents
Here are links to the template Word documents.
Note: To use the address-field right-click (or ctrl-click on Mac) on the address area, and choose "Edit Text". You can see the field when you hover the mouse over it.
6. Powerpoint documents
The CLARIN Presentation Template (Calibri font) for use on an external PC, can be downloaded with the following link.
The CLARIN Presentation Template (Source Sans Pro font) for use on a PC with this font installed, can be downloaded with the following link.
Please note: When you install the “Source Sans Pro” font, it will only work with the computer you've installed it on. Custom fonts that you've installed on your computer may not display the same way on a different computer, but will display in “Cambria” or the default font. If your document is to be used on such a computer, the font “Calibri” is to be used. Calibri ships with each version of Microsoft Office, since Office 2007.
- As a general rule and for reasons of stylistic consistency, the standard usage of English in Britain and Ireland should be preferred (called ‘British English’). As a general rule, the first spelling given on the Oxford Dictionaries website should be followed.
- For the spelling of centres we use: X-centre (We no longer use X-Centre, X Centre or X centre)
