GIF of University of Manchester brochure covers

Background

Each year the School of Science and Engineering holds an open day for prospective students to find out more about the course and student life at the University of Manchester.

Each open day a set of revised course brochures are produced giving up-to-date information on each of the 13 course in the school, careers prospects and general university information.

Pushing boundaries

For 2020 the school wanted to push the boundaries for the publications, using a non-photographic cover concept to engage students from Gen Z. The solution utilised a scientific-style illustrative approach to represent each course – at the same time as clearly presenting the brochures as a set from the same university school.

A consistent and coherent framework was established to communicate course information, student experiences, career prospects and wider university info.
