Promotional and Media Materials

Sample Press Release and Style Guide:

Copy and paste this press release template into a document and add information about your local bicentenary plans to share with local news media. (Or click on "File" then "Download As" and save it as a Word document in order to edit it for local use.)

This informative Bahá'í Style Guidelines PDF document can be printed and shared with reporters. It includes a paragraph explaining that Bahá'ís consider it disrespectful to display or publish photographs of Baha'u'llah, which is an important point to make to reporters.

Suggested Logo Design

Light of Unity Festival: Celebrating the 200th Birthday of Bahá'u'lláh

  • For High Res jpg files of all three styles of the logo click here
  • The Evanston, IL Baha'i community published a booklet listing events happening at the House of Worship and in their community and provided some of the design elements as an assistance to others.
  • For a version of the logo best used on web or social media click here
  • For a version of the logo best used on printed materials click here
  • Logo Pack: Download the full logo pack, with the three distinct versions—Vertical, Horizontal and Short. The vertical logo is the primary design that will likely be used for most applications. It contains the full event description and will therefore require a bit larger size when using it. Both the Horizontal and Short versions are intended for uses with limited space or size.

They are graciously making the high resolution print files available for download in a zip file on our Google Drive: click on arrow to download this zip file. (If you receive a warning that the file is too large for Google to scan, you can download the file anyway.)
