How can I obtain a copy of the new membership logo and what are the rules for use?

As a member of Physio First, while your membership remains current and valid, you are entitled to display the special member logo on your stationery, website, marketing, advertising and clinic signage.

There are three variations of the member logo; colour, white (reversed-out) and black (mono). The preference is to use the full colour logo on a white background where possible. On other coloured/darker backgrounds, the white logo may be used. The mono-black logo should only be used for single colour print and internal documents such as photocopies, fax, NCR pads etc.

The logos are available in various file formats, for professional print (vector .ai, .eps) and online/office use (bitmap .jpg, .png).

The rules

It's really important that the Physio First branding is used consistently. Always use the official logo files, never change the colours or proportions and never break the logo apart into separate elements – the whole logo should always appear in full.

Titles

Full members of Physio First are permitted to use the phrase 'member of Physio First' on your business cards, stationery and website. The organisation became Physio First in April 2008 and no reference should be made to OCPPP.

Can I use the Physio First logo, rather than the member logo?

Our Physio First logo by itself may be used in certain circumstances only. It is essential to seek advice from our General Secretary or Hon. Public Relations Officer before proceeding with any design that seeks to incorporate our Physio First logo. Please email your query to minerva@physiofirst.org.uk.

If you are using our old Physio First logo, please replace it with our new logo which shows that you are a member of Physio First. Our old Physio First logo will not be valid for use from the end of June 2016. For more information see the FAQ, 'how can I obtain a copy of the new membership logo and what are the rules for use?'

How can I download the new logo for my stationery?

The logos are available for full members only, provided they conform to all rules of usage (and pass the rules on to their printer).
