  • You must include “made at (or produced at) Emily Carr University of Art & Design” This helps to publicize our program by being associated with your great film!


  • OPTION 1: Your text should read “Produced at” or “Made at” above the Emily Carr logo. You can also just use the logo without writing “Produced At” or “Made At”
  • You can write your text in whatever font you choose. If you want to be consistent with the ECU font, it is Freight Sans Pro, available through Adobe CC
  • RULES, GRAPHIC LOGO PROTECTION: The Emily Carr graphic logo with text must not be changed or adjusted in any editorial manner, other than general scale adjustments of the entire graphic. This prohibition includes any self-designed version of the spiral, as well as any animated re-representation.
  • Place the logo at the end of your film. Hold on screen for 3 seconds. Fade-in/fade-out is recommended. You may wish to place the logo before your final copyright.

Please visit this wiki page for a VISUAL GUIDE for SIZE and PLACEMENT of your logo for you to use as a reference, so that all films have consistent use of the logo.
