Communications and Branding

The Communications and Branding Unit assists with communication of the Deakin brand and manages and protects the University's brand image.

The unit produces a range of widely distributed communications and promotional items for the University, Faculties and Divisions to effectively market Deakin, its products and brand. The unit is also responsible for assisting in the development and maintenance of Deakin's web sites which are aimed at external audiences.

Our objectives are to:

  • produce items which are creative and distinctive in the marketplace
  • create content which addresses the information needs of the audience 
  • analyse the best method of production/distribution 
  • identify the ideal delivery time and achieve timely delivery 
  • ensure information is accurate and comprehensive 
  • provide consistent information for online and print mediums.

The unit is also responsible for the University's advertising and branding and has a prime responsibility to develop, manage and evaluate effective advertising and brand strategies which also includes merchandise. The focus is on conveying a brand image that reinforces and differentiates Deakin and raises the University's profile. A key component of the role is to manage the application of the Deakin brand visually. This includes management of requests for use of the University name and logo.
