Information relating to the costs of the Bank's visual identity launched on 3 March

Freedom of Information rules mean that, as a public authority, the Bank of England is obliged to disclose certain types of information, both proactively and on request

Date: 5 April 2022


Since 2019, the Bank of England (the ‘Bank’) has been reviewing its visual communications to make it more accessible, inclusive and reflect our current values and mission. Our new typeface is easier to read for those with dyslexia and was designed based on guidance by the British Dyslexia Association. We have also ensured that there is enough contrast in the colours we use so that we comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

As noted by Andrew Bailey, how we communicate is part of how we carry out our mission. We intend to keep trying to make our communications more accessible for everyone.

Further information about how our visual communications are more accessible and inclusive can be found on our New visual identity page.
