EPRI PerspectiveWhen any EPRI product, target, market segment, or solution is sold,
EPRI is being sold. To ensure effective branding, it is important that
all communication products be designed and written with a common look
and feel. The "Editorial Style Guide" (TR-111039) and "The Graphic
Standards Guide" (BR-110883) provide information for authors and
designers to support this effort.
