New visual identity for House of Commons

News on the Parliament website that the House of Commons has updated its corporate visual identity to ensure it is accessible, in particular on digital platforms and mobile devices.

The updates include an updated rendering of the Crowned Portcullis symbol that works effectively at all sizes in digital environments, and follows the changes developed for the award-winning UK Parliament visual identity launched in 2018.

Alongside the updated version of the House of Commons wordmark, the identity includes an extensive colour palette, icons, illustrations and templates.

Two highly accessible typefaces, National and Register, have also been selected for their excellent legibility in digital and print environments.  The decision to adopt them was based on guidance from the British Dyslexia Association and the Digital Accessibility Centre.

The first corporate publication to feature the updated branding was the House of Commons Annual Report and Accounts 2018-19, which is available via the UK Parliament website.
