Digital brand guidelines
These guidelines have been created as living documentation of Macquarie University's visual online presence.
We have combined the principles of good design with our brand identity system to create a unified experience across all platforms.
While it’s important that these specifications are adhered to at all times, they are not designed to be restrictive. Rather, the aim is to encourage creativity within the parameters of the defined brand identity system.
Where applicable, we have also included the relevant HTML and CSS code to use for certain elements.
This section is to highlight the suite of options guardians of the Macquarie brand can use in digital environments. If you need assistance in setting up the functionality discussed in our digital brand guidelines, visit the Content Maintenance Guide for a step by step guide. If you require further assistance, please submit a OneHelp ticket.
