Templates for Microsoft Office

Powerpoint 

When you are presenting on behalf of the College, to internal or external audiences, we recommend that you use the College’s Powerpoint template to create your slides. The template is blank for you to add your own content. The This is Imperial presentation contains pre-made slides about the College: you can use all or some of these slides in your own presentation to external audiences. The presentations for prospective students contain both blank slides and slides populated with content about the College.

Badges

The template for College branded badges is designed for badges 54mm by 90mm. Badge inserts and holders can be purchased from Office Depot. The badge logo is in black to ensure consistency with the logos appearance when printed at local printers.

Letterhead

Template for email signatures

Email signatures

Email signatures should use the Arial font and follow this style:

Name
Job title
Department / Division (if relevant)
Imperial College London, Your Campus Room, Building (if required)
London XXX XXX (local campus postcode)
Tel: +44 (0)20 XXXX XXXX (using the international dial format helps overseas recipients)
Other number (if required)
Fax: +44 (0)20 XXXX XXXX

At the bottom of your signature, you could add a sentence directing viewers to a particular service or offer that is relevant to your area.

We do not recommend the addition of the College logo or any other icons to your message as the files may react with spam filters used by recipients.

Template for thesis and dissertation covers

It is not permitted for you to use the College crest on your dissertation or thesis cover. The College’s coat of arms is an important part of the graphic identity of Imperial College London. The crest is reserved for uses which promote the heritage and history of the College, such as degree certificates, invitations to formal College events, and sports team apparel and merchandise.

Instead, please use the Imperial College London logo.

For more details, please contact style.guide@imperial.ac.uk

Templates for LaTex

These files have been tested on Linux and some Unix systems. They require the current version of LaTeX, which is LaTeX2, and the packages Fancyheadings and Graphics.

The following files need to be downloaded. Either individually below or download the set as a LaTex zip file:

  1. The Imperial College London logo as an encapsulated PostScript file: imperial.eps
  2. A LaTeX class file that conforms to the formatting rules: impletter.cls. Due to technical problems, please email Peter Gillings for a copy of this file. Download the set as a zip file see link above.
  3. One (or more) of the LaTeX files to be used as templates for your letters

If you have purchased paper with personalised printed headers (including your name, address, contact details and qualifications), you need letter_headed.tex.

If you have paper printed with the blue logo and a blue statutory information footer only, you need letter_logo.tex.

If you are going to use blank paper you need letter_blank.tex.

Comments in the LaTeX template files explain the College's formatting requirements. Some adjustment parameters are provided to centre the printed page because different printers position the print area slightly differently.

Make your adjustments and personalise these template files. They can then be copied to become every new letter you write.

LaTeX needs to be able to find the logo (1) and class (2) files. There are several ways to make these files available:

- Ask your system administrator to copy them into the system-wide directory for LaTeX inputs.

- Place copies in the same directory as the copy of the template file you are using for your letter.

- Create your own LaTeX inputs directory and place copies there. To make LaTeX aware of the files in this directory, add the following line to the shell configuration file in your home directory:

shell file line to add bash(Linux) .bash_profile export TEXINPUTS=path-of-texinputs: ksh .profile export TEXINPUTS=path-of-texinputs: csh/tcsh .login setenv TEXINPUTS path-of-texinputs:

where "path-of-texinputs" is the path of your LaTeX inputs directory. Make sure you add the : at the end - otherwise the system-wide tex files will not be read!

If your distribution does not have the package Fancyheadings, copy this file, fancyheadings.sty, to the same directory you used for the logo and class files impletter.cls‌ Due to technical problems, please email Peter Gillings for a copies of the .sty and .cls files, or download the set as a LaTex zip file.

Templates for LaTex 2.09

These files work on Unix/Linux and the most common Windows implementations of LaTeX 2.09. An alternative to fancyheadings must be included with all the other files.

The following files need to be downloaded individually or download the complete LaTeX 2.09 set as a zip file:

  1. The Imperial College London logo as an encapsulated PostScript file: imperial.eps
  2. A LaTeX class file that conforms to the formatting rules: implet.sty. Due to technical problems, please email Peter Gillings for a copy of this file. Or download the complete 2.09 set in a zip, see the link above.
  3. One (or more) of the LaTeX files to be used as templates for your letters

If you have purchased paper with personalised printed headers (including your name, address, contact details and qualifications), you need implethd.tex.

If you have paper printed with the blue logo and a blue statutory information footer only, you need impletlg.tex.

If you are going to use blank paper you need impletbl.tex.
