The symbol is a visual identifier for NSERC as an organization.
It consists of a symbol and a bilingual wordmark.
To protect the strength and integrity of our symbol, a clear space area,
free of competing visual elements, should be maintained. In the example below,
"X" represents the clear space around the symbol. "X" is equal to half the height and
width of the circle in the NSERC symbol. The minimum size of the symbol should measure no less than 1.5 cm (5/8 inch) in width.
The correct symbol is shown below.
Some examples of incorrect usage are illustrated below.
The NSERC symbol is available for download. Before applying the symbol to any visual communications, read the symbol guidelines included above.
