Guidelines for video and audio
Video and audio plays a key part in the University's teaching and learning, research, marketing and communications, public relations and community engagement activities. The Guidelines for Video and Audio provide a framework to create video and audio content to ensure it meets minimum quality and brand standards.
The guidelines support anyone who produces video and audio for the University.
The Digital and Online Channels (DOC) team manage and maintain the Digital Guidelines, a separate set of guidelines available for those building University of Melbourne websites.
The Digital Guidelines should be used for all sites that sit on the University of Melbourne domain/URL (unimelb.edu.au).
The DOC team also has a range of resources available for setting up websites, domain name protocols and web style guides.
The Digital Guidelines include:
- additional colours for web
- typography guidelines
- UI component guidelines
Any website that sits on the University of Melbourne domain (unimelb.edu.au) should use the approved web templates and Digital Guidelines as advised by the Digital and Online Channels team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are an external agency, or are working with an external agency, you must contact the Digital and Online Channels team prior to starting any new website project.
Unless you have an approved, official co-brand or unique identity, all University of Melbourne bodies and entities should use the University of Melbourne logo as their social media profile picture.
A special-use University of Melbourne logo for social media is available on request from the Social Media team.
