Tap. Choose. Change. It’s Time to Pick Your Favourite Logo

It’s simple; all you have to do is select your preferred logo out of three different designs. You can do this using your … Read the rest

Logo Redesign Update

In General

So what’s happened since our last update?

Following the All Student Vote in October where you voted to keep the Union Southampton branding with the SUSU name and the recent ideas survey, we have been busy working on the logo redesign based on your feedback. Many of you said that you would like to see more colour on the building signage and a few of you expressed concerns about the cost of the rebrand previously. Therefore, we have been working with our Graphic Designers to come up with a series of logo designs in-house which you will be able to … Read the rest

We’ve changed

In General

We have been rolling out our new brand identity this week across our campuses.

We started by changing the buildings’ external signs, before heading out on a roadshow to WSA and Avenue to showcase the new brand and give you a chance to ask us any questions.

Today marks our official Highfield launch of Union Southampton. Please stop by the Redbrick from 11:00 to chat with us about the brand and for an opportunity to get creative by putting your own stamp on the new face of the Union.

We are now Union Southampton, or simply, the Union. ‘Us’ will … Read the rest

Rebrand: Are you ready for it?

In General

Since December we have been working on a review and now a rebrand of SUSU.

It’s been quite a journey! We’ve completed surveys and workshops involving both staff members and yourselves and we’ve made visits to Holdens’ branding agency in Manchester to discuss some interesting concepts discussed along the way.

Since our last update, Holdens’ have been working on getting together a set of branding guidelines to help us implement the new brand. This includes how to use the brand in order to reinforce who we are based on everything we learned during our consultation process, which saw 10% … Read the rest

The new brand is coming…

In General

It’s official: we’ve moved from a brand review to a full-on rebrand. It probably feels like we started this journey a lifetime ago, but we’re finally on the home stretch to revealing the new look of your Students’ Union, and trust us – it’s much better than the ‘brand’ we unveiled for April Fools’!

Since our last update, our team and Holdens’ branding agency have been working hard to develop the initial brand route that was voted on at Union Council.

And now for the exciting bit. We’ll be getting a look at the next stage of … Read the rest

The last couple of weeks have been a great step forward in rebranding the Union.

We would like to thank you all for filling out the survey and coming to our various rebrand workshops last month. 2,500 (10%) of you got involved to tell us what you thought and a further 150 of you came to the Ted’s Talk events hosted by Holdens’ in January.

As you may know from our last update, some of the Students’ Union team including our in-house designers, spent two days in Manchester visiting Holdens’ HQ at the end of last month to come up … Read the rest
