In this post, we will look at how to set up custom branding for your organization in Power BI.

Select Custom Branding in the menu:

We can see there are 3 ways we can brand Power BI:

  • Logo
  • Cover image
  • Theme color

Let’s look at each one of these.

For the logo, the size should be at least 200×30 pixels. Let’s create a simple logo like below, of size 285×83 pixels. We will save this as a png file:

The Cover Image is recommended to be at least 1920×160 pixels. Let’s use the image below, which are those exact dimensions. It is recommended to save this as a png or jpg. We will use png:

Upload both using the Upload buttons:

The theme color defaults to #323130. Let’s make it a bright pink color so we can see it clearly in Power BI:

Click Publish and Publish again:

Click OK and Refresh your browser:

The new branding has been applied:

  1. Hi,
    I have a question about the cover image. We can see automatically appearing “Good afternoon, Carl”. Is there the possibility to change the colour of the this phrase? Unfortunately my colour doesn´t match with the picture in the background.
    Thanks!
