Intelligence logos

Steve Elibank made this Freedom of Information request to Home Office

The request was refused by Home Office.

Steve Elibank

Dear Home Office,

I see that on your website, you display the logos of MI5
(http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/security...,
MI6
(http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/security...
and JTAC
(http://www.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/security....
Please answer each of these questions for each logo respectively.

— When was the current logo, corporate style, graphics and branding
implemented?
— Who designed it?
— How much were the designers paid for their services?
— Were other designers consulted? Was there competition? If so, who
was involved, and was any payment made to unsuccessful firms?
— Are there any "alternate" versions of the branding (as in, any
which were designed but not taken up), and if so, please supply an
electronic copy.
— Please provide me with a copy of your logo guidelines, branding
manual or equivalent document.
— Please provide a vector/EPS/SVG copy of the logo. I am well aware
of the need for brand management, and this is solely for branding
research purposes.

Yours faithfully,
Steve Elibank

Dear Mr Riddle,

Ref: 15802

Thank you for your request for clarification. The internet page I referred to has since been taken offline for some reason, so please re-interpret my enquiry as per below.

For the logos of MI5 (Security Service), MI6 (Secret Intelligence Service) and JTAC respectively:
— When was the current logo, corporate style, graphics and branding
implemented?
— Who designed it?
— How much were the designers paid for their services?
— Were other designers consulted? Was there competition? If so, who
was involved, and was any payment made to unsuccessful firms?
— Are there any "alternate" versions of the branding (as in, any
which were designed but not taken up), and if so, please supply an
electronic copy.
— Please provide me with a copy of your logo guidelines, branding
manual or equivalent document.
— Please provide a vector/EPS/SVG copy of the logo. I am well aware
of the need for brand management, and this is solely for branding
research purposes.

I am aware that much of this information may be "owned" by other government organisations, but if you happen to hold it as well (which I would consider likely) then the FOI Act requires you to divulge it.

Yours sincerely,
Steve Elibank

Dear Home Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Home Office's handling of my FOI request 'Intelligence logos'.

The logos of JTAC and MI5 cannot be secret security matters. This is surely obvious.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:
http://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/in...

Please reply to confirm.

Yours faithfully,
Steve Elibank
