University marketing and brand support

The university brand platform is a representation of the Marquette experience through multiple channels, platforms and formats of marketing and communication media. The brand is communicated through visual and verbal language, as well as through offline and online experience. In this era of rapidly evolving media and platforms, it is critical that the university brand is communicated in a clear, consistent manner – one that it is immediately recognizable as “that’s Marquette.”
