Each NCSF event host receives a kit of promotional materials, including a handbook filled with promotional ideas. In addition, on this page you’ll find links to downloadable promotional materials that you can customize for your official North Carolina Science Festival event.
Promotional materials for 2018 will be added to this page as they become available.
FESTIVAL LOGOS AND ART
To download a logo image, either right-click (PC) or control-click (Mac) on the image to get a contextual menu with options for saving. To resize the image you’ve downloaded, press the shift key while you drag a corner of the image — this will keep the dimensions proportionate.
Kelvin, the NC Science Festival spokesbot
Kelvin is one of the Festival’s more recognizable icons and should be treated as a logo, without any modifications. If you want to edit Kelvin in any way beyond resizing him, please contact the Festival’s media office at firstname.lastname@example.org to request permission in advance.
