Using the new templates

Templates that use the font countach need to be edited on a computer that has the font installed. If you do not have this font installed on your computer you can use one of the pre-made, ready to use cover images or book a hot desk in Burnaby (Education 7529) by emailing

Design considerations

The new social assets and digital screen templates incorporate the new visual brand guidelines and brand DNA to ensure consistency across channels. The new templates were designed to allow for diversity within the naming convention and supports any use of the logo architecture, while considering accessibility and legibility for users.
