- Design Approaches and Approval
There are three approved approaches you can take to develop your design materials:
- Work with Marketing and Communications to create a new brief, and our creative team completes work.
- Work with Marketing and Communications to create a new brief and we'll facilitate the work on your behalf with one of our preferred external designers, or provide you with contact details to work with a supplier.
- Complete your own design in-house, using approved Microsoft Office templates supplied by Marketing and Communications.
Under scenarios one, approval can be assumed in the delivery of your completed creative request.
Under scenario two, final designed materials must be approved by MC. If MC are facilitating work on your behalf, this will be taken care of internally, however if MC have provided you a contact to work with directly, you must submit the externally designed artwork to the Brand Approval team firstname.lastname@example.org for final sign off before print and/or distribution. The Brand Approval team require two business days for turnaround on approvals. You will need to factor into your timeline that changes may be required if the externally designed material does not comply with Brand Standards.
Under scenario three, provided you’re using the template in the way it is intended and you comply with the Brand Standards there is no need for MC approval. It is advisable however, to run the final output past your local marketing representative before moving into printing/production.
Developing your own design materials or using external designers who have not been briefed on the University of Adelaide Brand Standards are not approved approaches.
