Charles Sturt University has launched its first work under a new brand platform, in a fresh campaign by BWM Dentsu.
The campaign is the first since the agency won the account in May, and kicks off a long-term brand positioning partnership that the two businesses will continue to collaborate on.
BWM Dentus ECD Asheen Naidu said: “Charles Sturt University’s focus on hands-on learning has led it to being Australia’s number one institution for graduate employment, but the university has struggled to bring this to life.
“We wanted to embrace how Charles Sturt University provides its students with practical experience, not just theory, in a creative and engaging way. With the ‘It’s What We Do’ platform, we’re able to show what’s really possible when we stop talking and start doing.”
The film features students and alumni demonstrating the breadth of courses and success stories from Charles Sturt’s past and present. The concept of hands-on learning is extended through a series of graphic Out-of-home (OOH) and digital display executions.
GM of BWM Dentsu Brent Kerby added: “We know that educational institutions are facing criticism for being disconnected from the needs of the modern workplace; but conversely that makes students’ value real-life, applicable experience more than ever. This new brand platform provides the perfect vehicle to bring the Charles Sturt University proposition to life and show how the university is overcoming these industry concerns.”
Charles Sturt University executive director and CMO Shawn Walker said: “We chose to work with BWM Dentsu because of their understanding of our audience, approach to brand building and our shared values. The work we are putting to market perfectly captures our ethos and what we are offering current and prospective students.
“We’re excited to build on the new platform and create even more great work with the BWM Dentsu team in the future.”
The campaign launched on Sunday, 1 September and will run across TV, radio, digital and OOH until February 2020.
