Promoting NEOS is a full-time undertaking and we all need to pull together to make the most of the time surrounding the event and generate all of the interest we can.
Our apologies that this is showing 2019 information, but as soon as we have the information for 2020 we will update this page.
Official 2019 Logos and Graphics
Download the official logo to add to your posters or promotional material. This page is the only official source for the NEOS logo.
It is important that everyone involved in NEOS uses the logo. If we have a range of different logos this confuses the public and diffuses the impact of any promotional efforts.
These logos remain the copyright of North East Open Studios and are for NEOS Members use only, and must not be shared without prior permission. Contact us here.
How to use
When using the logo file please don’t enlarge them — you’ll impair the quality. They can be reduced a little and must be kept in proportion. If you require a particular size or format that isn’t here, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To download logo images, click on the link to the relative format and the image will open in a new page. Then right-click on the image and choose ‘save as’ to download it to your desktop.

Visitor Survey – Asking for Emails!
We know it’s not always easy to ask your visitors for their emails but there is a prize draw for a £100 and £50 if they give you their email and fill in our questionnaire.
So could we please ask you to put out the slips that are available to download below and a box to put the completed slips in so that no-one else can see their email address. You could even make up a notice so if you don’t get a chance to speak to them they can read it.
We will be asking you to copy the emails into (preferably) an excel document but any virtual document that we can just cut and paste the information from is great. We suggest you empty your box every day and do it nightly as it can be quite a pile if left until NEOS is over!
Thank you so much for your help in this matter – at the end of the day we will all benefit.
NEOS Yellow Sign:
Your ‘Yellow Signs’ are reusable, so please take care of them, because with a bit of TLC they will last a long time!
Clearly, you have to personalise them with your number, or numbers for shared venues. Those of you who have been in NEOS for a long time will know that your number changes every year, so for the newbies out there, be sure to not permanently mark your signs because you don’t get new ones every year. You can buy vinyl numbers and arrows online or you can print out your numbers and arrows and laminate them to fit the space on the yellow board. We have found you can stick the laminate to the board with sticky fixers – outdoor ones usually survive the rain! When NEOS is over you can just remove the laminate and your signs are ready for next year…
For information about when your Yellow signs can go up and where you can put them, please read the relevant guides on this page.
If you need more yellow signs to help signpost your event download this file and print on to YELLOW PAPER! Alternatively, this could also be used as a poster template if printed to A4.
There are three local authorities involved in the NEOS area and each has specific rules for placement of your yellow signs before, during and after NEOS.
Please take the time to read the instructions relevant to your area. (click to download). The local authorities have to power to take down any signs they deem inappropriate and NEOS could be fined, so its best to follow their rules.
