Multimedia Design Studio
The Multimedia Design team create and deliver both digital and printed design solutions. We work with colleagues across all colleges and services, as well as partner organisations and external businesses, to create the full range of marketing materials including prospectuses, advertisements and corporate publications.
Our expert designers provide advice on creating the most effective design materials to ensure your message has impact and your audience is reached through professional, innovative and contemporary design.
We also work on a number of rebrand projects that require skills in other areas such as interior design, animation and video editing. Our other areas of responsibility include print procurement, and overseeing the University’s visual identity to ensure the organisation is represented consistently across all media and digital platforms.

Invaluable for creating the right impact at events, fairs and exhibitions, the Multimedia Design Studio can help you. We offer a large range of items such as mugs, lanyards, pens, notepads and polo shirts which can be printed with your department branding and the University logo.
Our specialist designers offer a complete Web and Digital Design service encompassing digital animation, html, email flash banners, flash animation, websites, web banners and ads.
We can provide you with advice on choosing a photographer from our register of freelancers who have all worked for the University. You will also need to complete a Photographer consent form, be informed on data protection and also to have read and understand the guidelines for briefing your photographer.
We offer a wide range of illustrative styles from hand drawn to digitally created pieces based on your requirements.
Design time is charged at £40 per hour, whilst animation and film editing is charged at £50 per hour (internal clients only) with a minimum of 30 mins charged for each job.
