Using a brand on digital media enables viewers to identify the video owner, protects intellectual property of the video and provides marketing opportunity for the owner of the video.
At Flinders University, the brand is an integral component to the success of the university and any encounter with the wider community is an opportunity to build upon Flinders positive reputation. Marketing and Communications Office at Flinders University states that ‘our brand identity unites the diverse parts of our organisation, providing a common understanding of who we are and our collective aspirations, both within the University and beyond.' Their website should be considered when using the Flinders brand.
