Our new signage will be put up over the weekend, so we are all set for the University Open Days on Saturday 08 July. Keep your eyes peeled!… 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

April Fools’ Spoiler: Unveiling the new brand…just kidding!

In General

If you fell foul of our April Fools’ prank earlier today, let us reassure you that as great as the faux-brand is, the actual brand will be much more comprehensive!

Interestingly, according to Peter Holden who works for Holden’s Agency, Southampton is well-known for its sea kale exports. Therefore the faux-brand has been inspired by the city’s maritime heritage.

Look out for more information about the next stage of the REAL brand coming soon!SeaKaleBrand_FBPost

Unveiling the new brand…

In General

As you may know, for the last few months we have been in the midst of a rebrand. We appointed Manchester-based branding agency Holdens’ to work with us on the new brand concepts using the Ted’s Talks, branding workshops and a survey which received 2,562 responses to gain your views.

According to your feedback, the new brand needed to reflect who we are. So we paid particular attention to the history of Southampton, looking for something as unique as the Union is, and when we came across the story of sea-kale farming and export from the city, we knew we’d … Read the rest
