Logo and marketing resources

In order to provide a wide range of promotional materials for Locals with Special Olympics branding and a compelling, professional look, the SOBC provincial office has been given several template documents by Special Olympics International and have created a number of others ourselves, all of which can be easily customized for Locals upon request. We aim to feature your local athletes and your Local's name in strong, compelling ways while using the Special Olympics brand style to give our materials consistency, professionalism, and easy recognition.

Please contact SOBC Communications Coordinator Michael Obendoerfer (michaelo@specialolympics.bc.ca / 604-737-3131 direct / 1-888-854-2276 toll-free) or your local SOBC Community Development staff anytime with any such requests.
