Macquarie University has a range of print publication, presentation and web templates — predesigned formats and layouts that follow the Macquarie brand guidelines.
You should try to use templates where appropriate rather than create your own designs, as this is both cost effective and ensures the University can present a consistent and professional image.
Microsoft Office templates are intended for the everyday user for day-to-day business use.
InDesign templates are only to be used by trained professionals who are knowledgeable and skilled with InDesign software.
If you are unable to download any of the templates, you can contact Group Marketing for assistance.

Macquarie University is a complex organisation with many different entities including departments, functions, centres, and whole subsidiaries engaging with a variety of audiences.
As the University — the parent brand — aims to tell a coherent story about itself, it is important to ask how these entities relate to the University brand through nomenclature and their own look and feel.
Going forward there will be a primary emphasis on the Macquarie University parent brand.
Our collective sense of identity comes first and foremost from the overarching organisation we belong to. There are minimal special branding approaches for individual entities and this is reflected in the brand templates available.
