All publicly available, official web pages must employ the University Visual Identity using templated elements as provided by UWA's 'Digital'.
UWA's 'Digital' is responsible for ensuring the consistent application of the University Visual Identity online. Approval must be obtained before publishing using the University Visual Identity online.
For most online content, consistent application of the Visual Identity is handled automatically by the centrally available web publishing facilities and content management systems.
Publicly available official websites and applications outside of the central web publishing facilities are also required to use the University Visual Identity in a consistent manner. In these cases, UWA's 'Digital' will support and facilitate the implementation of the Visual Identity online.
Contact UWA's 'Digital' before starting work for detailed instructions on how to employ the University Visual Identity.
