Dear Transport for Wales,

These questions relate to the branding for Transport for Wales and Transport for Wales Rail:

1. Who designed the TfW logo?
2. How much was the designer paid for their services?
3. Are there any alternate versions of the branding (i.e. any which were designed but not used)? If so, please provide a copy of these versions.

Please could you also provide me with a copy of your brand guidelines or equivalent document.

Yours faithfully,
Daniel Doran

Transport for Wales

The WhatDoTheyKnow team has been made aware by the Welsh Government FOI Unit that their contact details appear to have been used for sending FOI requests to Transport for Wales in error.

This is the address that is listed on the TfW website - http://tfw.gov.wales/freedom-information - and - therefore, the apparent miscommunication is somewhat strange!

We have not re-sent this request to TfW as the FOI officer at the Welsh Government has already done so, however, if you become aware of any issues please let us know.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused, unfortunately it is outwit our control, however, it is frustrating.

Dear Transport for Wales,

Please could you provide an update regarding the progress of this FOI request?

Yours faithfully,

Jeremy Morgan,

Dear Mr Doran,

 

I am now able to provide the following in response to your request for
information on Transport for Wales branding.

 

1. The TfW logo was designed by smorgasbord (Cardiff)

2. We do not hold information on how much the designer was paid to design
the logo. The supplier provided other branding services to Transport for
Wales and has not separated out the cost of logo design.

3. Alternate designs remain the intellectual property of the design
company.

4. Our brand guidelines are in draft and we will send you a copy when the
document is finalised

 

Yours faithfully

 

Jeremy Morgan
