All materials produced by or for the University must:

- Adhere to the logo sizing and positioning guidance
- Use the correct icons and maps
- Only use colours from our colour palette

Built into each section of our brand guidelines is the flexibility to allow for creativity and vibrancy. We have developed a set of templates for staff with graphic design skills to use to put together frequently produced items. Please read the brand guidelines before you start designing to ensure that your work is consistent with all of our other communications. The graphic designers the Marketing team uses also enjoy creative freedom when it comes to creating eye-catching materials but will always adhere to our guidelines.
Any design concept may be considered, as long as the guidelines and the design and production processes (including the requirements for approval from Marketing or PR) are followed.
