Publication design for higher education

Publication design for higher education

The Association of University Administrators (AUA) is a professional body for anyone working in higher education administration or management.

We’ve been working with the AUA since 2010 and over the years we’ve developed a really strong relationship and work with them on a number of projects including publications, advertising and leaflets. Recent projects with the AUA include their annual conference and exhibition handbook, Newslink, CPD Framework handbook and Get Connected leaflet.

Our publication design for higher education service covers a whole range of support for marketing, and we’ve worked with The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, Bath Spa University, Royal Northern College of Music, BPP University and many schools.

AUA Conference and Exhibition handbook

Each year the AUA holds a conference and exhibition for up to 800 delegates from around the world.

What we did

We originally pitched for this work in 2013, and have worked on each annual brochure since. The 2017 Conference and Exhibition brochure is currently being sent to members.

“We got some great feedback on our conference handbooks this year, people loved the design and layout. It’s by far the best we’ve had while I’ve been with the AUA!
I want to thank you for all your help.”

Laura Ashcroft Projects Officer, Association of University Administrators

AUA Newslink

Newslink is a 32 page newsletter that is issued there times a year to 4,000 AUA members in the UK and abroad.

What we did

We work closely with the editor of Newslink to design a publication that appeals to members and potential members and increase engagement with both groups.

``I highly recommend copper media. We have always been delighted with everything they have produced for us, from our quarterly membership magazine to more bespoke one off publications. The creativity offered in the design work is always original, but keeps within our own brand guidelines and the customer service received from both Julian and Jo is exemplary, with them both going out of their way to meet our deadlines in delivering us a perfect product.``

Kim Mellor Communications Officer, Association of University Administrators

AUA Get Connected

AUA uses Get Connected as part of its marketing toolkit to engage and recruit new members from around the world.

What we did

We worked within the AUA’s branding guidelines to create a bi-fold brochure with wrap around cover.

AUA CPD Framework

The CPD Framework handbook is part of the AUA’s professional development support programme for its members.

What we did

Using the AUA branding guidelines to inform our work, we created a new look and feel for this continuing professional development handbook.
