AP branding and design system

Our brand

The Associated Press has been one of the world’s most recognized and trusted media brands since 1846. Here you can discover how we’re building on this trust in new ways, and access design and communications resources that will help reinforce and elevate our reputation going forward.

The AP story

Through over 170 years of social, political and technological change, the AP has been the only global news organization that operates as an independent not-for-profit. That means we reinvest every dollar we make in the work we do, and we don’t answer to anyone or anything but the facts.
