championing a unique student union culture

In 2016, the University of Essex’ Student Union approached us to assist in the regular creation and supplementation of event and marketing materials. The role of a Student Union is to democratically represent the interests of its members and communicate ideas and solutions between students and the university. The way in which they engage with students is therefore of utmost importance and requires clear, concise communication and representation.

Marketing Campaigns

Supporting the voices of the future

While the university’s Student’s Union has internal marketing and production teams, they required outside assistance in order to fulfill their wide-ranging design needs – from branding to print, animation and illustration. The campaign material is often in reaction to real-time events or union achievements, and therefore needs to be conceived, produced and rolled out within a couple of weeks.

Visualising ambition

Our work with ESU is carried out on a retainer basis, offering set numbers of hours a week in order to facilitate the quick turnarounds. Larger events such as the annual summer ball that require more planning are dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

Our current deliverables for ESU include:

  • Sub-brands for subsidiary departments within the ESU
  • Posters & printed flyers for campaigns & events
  • Animated screens throughout the campus
  • Social Media campaigns
  • Event signage & promotional Material
  • Merchandise packaging
  • Illustration & Iconography

Moving Forward

We continue to work with the Students’ Union on a growing number of social awareness campaigns and student events. Our relationship thrives on clear communications and a refined process that enables us to deliver messages effectively and on time.

If you or your organisation would like to work with us on a retainer basis, simply get in touch.

“The guys at Fever made efforts to understand our journey and our culture. Good design is a language, not a style. That language has now started more conversations with our members. They are fully integrated with us.” Alex O'Dell, Senior Marketing Manager, Essex Students Union
