Empowering higher education with marketing production

Outfit has extensive experience in supporting brand management and automation for universities and education providers

Imagine a platform that provides central brand control, but enables faculties and schools to self-serve, where time and resource demand for above-the-line production can be alleviated and redirected to higher value and more strategic initiatives. Welcome to Outfit.

Daily marketing pressures

With the world demanding more and more from marketing everyday, we understand that nearly every higher education marketing team out there experiences the same key issues.

  • Increased workload strain and resource shortage
  • Competing priorities
  • Unreasonably short turn-around times

We partner with higher education leaders to innovate their current approach, promoting efficiency, effectiveness and empowerment while managing a central brand in a decentralised environment.

A brand automation solution

We tailored a solution to solve these challenges because we found higher education marketing teams could all benefit significantly from:

  • central brand control
  • empowered faculty teams
  • elimination of bottlenecks
  • reduced risk and non-compliance.

Central brand control

Controlling your brand centrally makes sense - you can ensure the visual identity is used correctly, every time, strengthening your already strong equity among students and prospective students. Outfit facilitates the control of your brand, so your brand guidelines are applied to every piece of university marketing material.

Empower faculty teams

Faculty teams can develop their collateral swiftly and more cost-effectively than traditional ways. Outfit automatically customises the collateral to the individual faculty and region, meaning no more hunting around for the right logo or logo lockup to support your marketing plan.

Eliminate design bottlenecks

  • Your faculty teams move quickly and often require marketing and event collateral with short timeframes. Outfit university marketing software eliminates long lead times by allowing faculty teams to create their material, without the need to wait for the central team to design them.
