La Trobe University

The challenge

Develop a meaningful brand platform for a University competing in a cluttered, and ever-changing market landscape.

The Story

Winner of the Australian Marketing Institute's Effectiveness award, our work for La Trobe University repositioned this educational institution with great effect.

Spanning a four-year period and working across all areas of the organisation, this work transformed marketing, language, perceptions and above all, enrolments.

Over this period our teams engaged with students, teaching faculty and adminstration staff alike to develop an empathic understanding of what made this organisation distinctive.

Capturing the diversity amongst the student body and in parallel the possibilities through the curriculum offered was indeed at the heart of it all.
